Ravens Wanted Rematch

Posted Jan 9, 2013

After the Ravens won their Wild Card Game, wide receiver Anquan Boldin said he was hoping to play Denver again to avenge his team's Week 15 loss.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. –After the Ravens defeated the Colts in the Wild Card round, their attention immediately turned to their upcoming opponent.

For one Baltimore player, the Broncos were exactly the team that he hoped to face in the Divisional Round.

“I wanted Denver,” Ravens wide receiver Anquan Boldin said. “Because they beat us. We’ll make it different.”

Team captain Ray Lewis stood behind his teammate.

“Whatever Anquan feels, you know that we’re all together on whatever it is,” Lewis said. “So if that’s what he wants, that’s what we want.”

Safety Rahim Moore, who trains with Boldin in the offseason, doesn’t blame the wideout for wanting a rematch.

“I’m quite sure he does,” Moore said. “I would too. I know how he works. He’s one of the best competitors I’ve ever seen.”

Cornerback Chris Harris was tasked with shadowing the Ravens’ leading receiver, who was held without a catch in the Week 15 meeting.

“You know they want to come back and get payback,” Harris said when asked about the Ravens’ desire for a rematch. “They are eager to come up here and play us. We’re hungry, too.  We haven’t reached any goals just by being the number one seed. We haven’t reached any of our goals, so we’re still hungry and we’re excited to play them too.”

Despite his success in Week 15, Harris knows he’s in for a tough battle on Saturday.

“It’s about winning one-on-one battles,” Harris said when asked about the key to duplicating his success against Boldin. “That’s the only thing we have to do. Go out there and try to win our one-on-one battles.”

Boldin was targeted six times – the second-most for the Ravens in the contest -- but the only ball thrown his way that was caught was pulled in by Harris, who returned it 98 yards for a touchdown.

“I definitely have a lot of confidence, based off how we played last time,” Harris said. “I’m just trying to go out there and duplicate the same thing. I know I’m going to play my game and whatever they have new, whatever they do, we’ll be ready for it. We’re prepared.”
