Hell look at ray lewis a few years ago. People said he was done. They get a solid DT and he plays 6 more seasons as a feature of their defense.

& it was night & day difference between the way New England played us & the way they played the Ravens.

Against us, they couldn't do anything wrong. Guys we hadn't even heard of had great games on both sides of the ball. Vs the Ravens, Tom Terrific looked meh......

I don't think their defense looked any better than ours did, but that second half, it was all Ravens.
