Jamal Lewis enters The Ring

The rain couldnt ruin the celebration for Jamal Lewis on Thursday night.

Lewis, the Ravens all-time leading rusher with 7,801 yards, was inducted into the Ring of Honor at halftime of a game against the Cleveland Browns under umbrellas because of a light drizzle.

Lewis was flanked by owner Steve Bisciotti, GM Ozzie Newsome, and fellow Ring members Peter Boulware and Jonathan Ogden, among others.

"It felt great to be out there in front of the fans and on the field once again without the pads on, of course," said Lewis, who led the offense en route to a Super Bowl victory for the 2000 season. "It never gets old. I still get the goose bumps and the airs, but the good part about it (is) I didnt have to go out and suit up and play for 60 minutes."

Lewis played for nine seasons he missed all of 2001 with a knee injury and spent the last three with the Browns.

His best statistical season was 2003, when he ran for 2,066 yards, third-best in NFL history, and 14 touchdowns. He averaged 129.1 yards per game that season.

"It was great playing in front of these fans," Lewis said. "It was always a live crowd, always stood behind us."

Ravens lower concession prices at M&T Bank Stadium ahead of 2018 season

Ravens lower concession prices at M&T Bank Stadium ahead of 2018 season

Enjoying a game at M&T Bank Stadium just became a little more affordable.

On Thursday, the Ravens introduced their new "Flock Friendly Fare," reducing the price of 21 of their most popular food and beverage items.  

The change comes as the organization focuses on revamping the fan experience in 2018. Fans will see an average of 33 percent in total savings and up to 53 percent savings on a single item.  

"As a lot of you probably know, after every game we survey fans to see how we're doing; what have we done well and what have we not done well. Over the years, one of the biggest criticisms we received was for the gameday concessions prices," Ravens President Dick Cass said on the team's website

Alcoholic beverages were all reduced by $1 with the addition of domestic 12 ounce beer for $5.

Chicken tenders with fries went from $11 to $7, while a slice of pizza went from $8.50 to $6. No single item will cost above $9.

On average, you will now be able to feed a family of four for $44 compared to $66.75 in years past. To see all of the reductions, click the arrow in the post below. 

In 2017, the Atlanta Falcons reduced their concession prices upon opening their brand new Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The Ravens, however, are expecting to lose $1.5 million in concession revenue due to the change.

Vegas odds against Lamar Jackson starting for Ravens in 2018

Vegas odds against Lamar Jackson starting for Ravens in 2018

Vegas has spoken and they are not optimistic about rookie Lamar Jackson starting under center for the Ravens in 2018.

Bovado, an online gambling site, has set the odds on how the top 2018 rookies will perform and they have Jackson getting 0.5 starts this season.

That number will come as a surprise considering the popular narrative that Lamar Jackson will be the Ravens' starter in no time. The team made it clear they are planning for life after Flacco when they traded back into the first-round of the 2018 draft to select the quarterback out of Louisville at No. 32

Flacco - who is entering his 11th season with the organization - is experiencing a decline in his performance of late, one that can not be put entirely on his shoulders as the team has failed in finding him valuable weapons to throw to. Nonetheless, Flacco's projected 2018 season is very much up in the air and it appears Vegas is betting on the one-time Super Bowl MVP to bounce back. 

However, the Ravens have failed to make the playoffs four of the last five seasons, and if that trend continues into 2018, the rookie could get his shot at flipping the script.

If you're a betting man, it could payoff to bet the over on Jackson. Low risk, seemingly high reward.
