Ray Lewis is injured and didn't take the field for the Baltimore Ravens' Thanksgiving matchup with the San Francisco 49ers. But that doesn't mean the ferocious middle linebacker didn't provide an excellent moment during the game. You see, Lewis is always a presence, even if he's stranded on the sideline, pacing around and firing up the team.
So when Lewis was on the mic, he had to deliver the quote of the day. It's about hunting, putting the opponent on his wall and, of course, taxidermy. Because you knew Lewis could come up with an excellent metaphor for the play of his defense.

And you know what? The Ravens were hunting all night. At the time of this post, Baltimore had already sacked Alex Smith nine times in its hunting excursion. The Ravens defense stifled the 49ers all night, and simply dominated up front.
Hunting. Taxidermy. Ray Lewis. Not a bad way to end Thanksgiving.
