OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) - When the Baltimore Ravens last went to the Super Bowl, Art Modell was owner of the team and Brian Billick was the coach.
Now, 12 years later, they're back with owner Steve Bisciotti, coach John Harbaugh and one significant link to both teams: Ray Lewis.
Drawing inspiration from their long-time middle linebacker, the Ravens will play San Francisco after bullying their way past New England 28-13 Sunday night to win the AFC championship. The victory ended a lengthy dry spell for a franchise with one Super Bowl appearance in 17 years of existence.
The magnitude of the accomplishment hadn't quite sunk in Monday.
Quarterback Joe Flacco says, "We're still on a little bit of a high ... I don't know if anybody quite believed it yet, but it's pretty real."
