Ray Lewis made some big hits on Julian Edelman during their time in the NFL, but Edelman delivered a clean shot on the Baltimore Ravens great on Thursday.
It started with Lewis reacting to Edelman betting $100,000 on the Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers facing off in Super Bowl LVI.
"I'm gonna call him right now," the Hall-of-Fame linebacker said on CBS Sports. "I need to pray for him. Me and him got to do some therapy."
Edelman caught wind of Lewis' comments and issued an A+ response on Twitter.
"How much are you putting on a Ravens Super Bowl? @raylewis," he wrote.
Edelman 1, Lewis 0.
The Ravens, of course, missed out on the playoffs after an 8-9 season. They ended their 2021 campaign on a six-game losing streak.
Edelman's Patriots, who finished 10-7 on the year, are set to take on the Buffalo Bills in the Wild Card round Saturday night. Kickoff is set for 8:15 p.m. ET at Highmark Stadium.
