Colts vs. Ravens, NFL playoffs 2013: Ray Lewis, Andrew Luck and more inspiration than you can handle

USA TODAY Sports

Get your hankies out, there's a whole bunch of inspiring stories on the field in Baltimore today.

The Colts and the Ravens pick up the NFL Wild Card play today in Baltimore. This is only the second game back for head coach Chuck Pagano, who faces long odds again against a heavily favored Ravens team ... a team that he used to work for until last year.

For the Ravens, this is the final home appearance for Ray Lewis. The Hall of Famer-to-be leaves a complex legacy in Baltimore and the NFL, but it's hard to argue with his skills on the field.

The Colts got by this year with a lot of help from the schedule makers, but they did get some impressive wins along the way, beating Green Bay and Houston this year. Can they do it again when it really counts? If they are going to, they need Andrew Luck to play nearly flawless.

Follow the action and updates at Baltimore Beatdown and Stampede Blue. Updates, highlights and the all important GIFs are available over at SB Nation's playoff hub live during the game.
