Ravens Rake In ESPY Award Nominations

Posted Jun 28, 2013

Joe Flacco, Ray Rice and the Super Bowl champions are nominated for four top awards.


Baltimore took home the Lombardi Trophy in February. Now it could bring in a haul of ESPY awards too.

The Ravens are represented in four top nominations for the 2013 ESPY Awards, which will be held on July 17 at 9 p.m. The ESPN awards show will be hosted by actor Jon Hamm. 

The 2012 Ravens are up for “Best Team” after defeating the San Francisco 49ers, 34-31, in Super Bowl XLVII. They’ll go against the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks, NBA’s Miami Heat, MLB’s San Francisco Giants, Alabama's football team, Oklahoma’s softball team and the U.S. women’s Olympic gymnastics squad.

Quarterback Joe Flacco is nominated for “Best Championship Performance” after he completed 22-of-33 passes for 287 yards and three touchdowns, good enough for Super Bowl MVP. He’ll compete with NBA Finals MVP LeBron James, World Series MVP Pablo Sandoval and Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski.

Baltimore’s thrilling 38-35 double-overtime win over the Denver Broncos in the AFC divisional playoffs is nominated for “Best Game.” It will compete with the Boston Bruins’ Game 7 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Heat’s Game 6 victory over the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals.

Lastly, Ray Rice’s “Hey Diddle Diddle” 4th-and-29 play in San Diego is up for “Best Play.”  It is currently ranked third in a bracket with 16 nominations.

The top is a hit by South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney and No. 2 is a 55-foot buzzer-beater from high school basketball player Khalil Edney to win the New York Section 1 Class AA final. Edney, oddly enough, attends Rice’s high school alma mater, New Rochelle.

Fans can now vote for the Ravens online at ESPN.com, and it ends just before the show begins.
