Stage set for another potential meeting of the Harbaughs
Ray Lewis will play through an injury, but Denver Mayor Michael Hancock isn't about to dance through one.

After losing a bet to Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake over the outcome of the Ravens-Broncos playoff game, Hancock was supposed to perform Lewis' signature pregame dance Tuesday. Instead, the mayor showed up with a limp.

"He's injured," said Amber Miller, Hancock's spokeswoman. "He was at a National Western Stock Show event last night, and he caught his boot. He seriously strained his quad. He's limping a good deal today. He's hoping for a speedy recovery."

Miller said Hancock isn't canceling the dance, just postponing it.

"He's headed to the doctor," she said. "The mayor's motto is do it right, not fast."

Due to the loss, Hancock also must now send east a box of dry-aged "cowboy cut" ribeye steaks from Lombardi Brothers Meats.

"We're working on getting the steaks out," Miller said. "We're cutting the meat."

Rawlings-Blake had promised to light Baltimore's historic Washington Monument in blue and orange Broncos colors and send to Denver a platter of broiled crab cakes from J. W. Faidley Seafood had the Broncos won.

Baltimore flavor in Buffalo

In addition to hiring former Ravens linebackers coach Mike Pettine as their defensive coordinator, the Buffalo Bills' staff under new coach Doug Marrone has even more Baltimore flavor.

Former Ravens secondary coach Donnie Henderson was hired to coach the defensive backs, and former Ravens starting defensive end and second-round draft pick Tony Weaver is the defensive line coach after spending last season as the New York Jets' defensive line coach.

End zone

As the most fined team in the NFL this season, the Ravens are firmly on the radar of the league office and officials. When asked if his team will be worried about possibly being penalized for illegal hits, Harbaugh replied: "We better have it in our minds. It's important to do things within the rules. No different with the Patriots, they better have it in their minds. We will try to do things the right way."
