January 28, 2001 - In the span of a year, Ray Lewis went from Super Bowl sideshow to Super Bowl Most Valuable Player. Standing atop the winners’ celebratory stage after the game, the same player who oftentimes found himself vilified, testified to a faith in his maker and his team. The Baltimore Ravens intercepted Kerry Collins four times and dismantled the Giants, 34-7, to win Super Bowl XXXV.
"The man upstairs tells you: I never will take you through hell without bringing you to triumph," Lewis said after the game. "And that’s why I’m sitting up here now."
