Ravens Legend of the Game

Jacoby Jones, a 2012 All-Pro and Pro Bowler, is Saturday's Legend of the Game. Jones is the Ravens' all-time leader in kickoff return average (30.1) and scored six total return touchdowns (five kickoff and one punt) while in Baltimore. Perhaps no player made more electrifying and game-changing plays than he did during the Ravens' Super Bowl XLVII Championship run, which included his 70-yard "Mile High Miracle" touchdown catch in the Divisional Round at Denver.

Throughout the game, the Ravens will also recognize Ring of Honor members Peter Boulware, Jamal Lewis, Michael McCrary and Lenny Moore.

Honorary Captain

Baltimore Orioles legend and Baseball Hall of Famer Cal Ripken Jr. will serve as Saturday's honorary captain. A 19-time All-Star and two-time American League Most Valuable Player, the "Ironman" played in a Major League Baseball-record 2,632 consecutive games.

Jimmy Eat World, the popular American rock band and platinum recording artists, will perform from the Bud Light Touchdown Club during halftime.

Seats for Service

Sgt. Patrick Kepp of the Montgomery County Police Department is Saturday's Seats for Service recipient. A longtime Ravens fan, Sgt. Kepp had his legs amputated after he was involved in a serious crash while trying to stop a reckless driver on I-270 in October.
