By the numbers: Tom Brady vs. Ray Lewis

By James Walker

Two future Hall of Famers will meet Sunday when quarterback Tom Brady of the New England Patriots faces linebacker Ray Lewis and the Baltimore Ravens in Sunday's AFC Championship Game. This is the final meeting between these two football legends. Lewis announced that he will retire after the postseason.

It's fitting that Brady and Lewis will compete for the final time with a chance to go to the Super Bowl on the line. Brady and Lewis are arguably the top offensive and defensive players of this generation and have four combined championships. They have defined elite quarterback and linebacker play for at least the past dozen years.

Brady's Patriots and Lewis' Ravens have been the two dominant teams in the AFC the past two years. But the road ends Sunday for one of these great players.
