Joe Flacco celebrated his historic contract in style on Monday: He went to McDonald’s. The Ravens quarterback became the highest-paid player in NFL history on Monday, after signing a $120.6-million deal over six years. That’s a whole lot of McNuggets.

According to ESPN, Flacco visited an Aberdeen, Maryland franchise mere hours after inking the deal. He ordered “a 10-piece McNugget meal, fries, and an unsweetened iced tea for $6.99.” Flacco is living large. (Photo: John Norman/Twitter)

A little extra attention: San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver apologized Thursday for anti-gay comments he made to a comedian during Super Bowl media day, saying “that’s not what I feel in my heart.”

“I’m sorry if I offended anyone. They were very ugly comments,” Culliver said during an hour-long media session. “Hopefully I learn and grow from this experience and this situation.”

He said he would welcome a gay teammate to the 49ers, a reversal of his remarks to Artie Lange two days earlier during an interview at the Superdome.

“I treat everyone equal,” Culliver said. “That’s not how I feel.” (Photo: Mark Humphrey/The Associated Press)

Welcome to NFL immortality, Joe Flacco.

Somewhere up there in the all-time playoff archives near the “Hail Mary” by Staubach and the “Immaculate Reception” by Franco now lives the “Flacco Fling” by the Baltimore Ravens quarterback.

One big throw down the sideline, 70 make-or-break yards on a wing and a prayer — a high, arcing touchdown pass that soared through the icy air, flew over two defenders, landed in the hands of Jacoby Jones, saved the game for Baltimore and kept Ray Lewis’ 17-year career going at least one more week.

The record will show Justin Tucker kicked a 47-yard field goal 1:42 into the second overtime Saturday to give the Ravens a 38-35 victory over Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. The highlight? That would be Flacco’s game-tying touchdown to Jones on third-and-3 from the 30 with 31 seconds left in regulation and no timeouts. (Photos: Jeff Gross/Getty Images, Doug Pensinger/Getty Images)

The Baltimore Ravens posted this on their Facebook: “What do you think of Ray’s [Lewis] new face mask?”
We agree with Deadspin — terrifying.

Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis will miss the remainder of the season with an arm injury, an enormous blow to an already depleted defence that has uncharacteristically struggled this year.
Lewis tore his right triceps during Sunday’s 31-29 victory over Dallas. Cornerback Lardarius Webb also is out for the year after ripping the ACL in his left knee in the win against the Cowboys.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh confirmed Monday both are done for the year.
The 37-year-old Lewis leads Baltimore in tackles and is the voice of experience in the huddle. He’s been invited to 13 Pro Bowls and is a two-time NFL defensive player of the year.

No one is complaining that the refs cost the Cleveland Browns the game. That mere fact is a major victory for the NFL and the seven-man crew led by referee Gene Steratore, who brought official harmony back to the nation’s most popular league.Cheered from the moment they walked onto the field, the men in stripes ran a smooth and efficient game Thursday night as the NFL’s lockout of officials came to an end with the Baltimore Ravens’ 23-16 win over the Browns.“To just be applauded by 50,000 people prior to anything happening, it was something that kind of chokes you up,” Steratore said. “It was a very special feeling.”Sure, there were calls that made both sides unhappy. Browns coach Pat Shurmur drew an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for arguing an intentional grounding call, and Ravens left tackle Michael Oher could be heard raising all kinds of beef about a holding call.
