McKinnie sparked Ravens to Super Bowl


Who deserves all of the credit for the Ravens run to the Super Bowl?

Joe Flacco? 8 touchdowns and zero interceptions in the playoffs. But it's not him.

Ray Lewis? The inspirational leader is on his "Last Ride" tour. Nope. Not him.

Bryant McKinnie. No chance, right? Wrong. The Baltimore Sun is giving McKinnie the credit.

The article notes that replacing left tackle Michael Oher with Bryant McKinnie two weeks ago was a move that revamped the Ravens' struggling offense.

Meanwhile, St. Paul native Matt Birk can't wait to play in the Super Bowl for the first time.

"The whole thing is still surreal," Birk told the Pioneer Press. "But there's still a game left. We still have to go back to work and try to win one more game."
