EA Cover Curse

Linebacker Ray Lewis completed the 2004-5 season and Pro Bowl without suffering a major injury or being involved in an "off-field incident". He did however have a personal low tackle/game ratio and for the first time in his nine year NFL career, did not have an interception (he had six in 2003-4).

Ray's Ravens missed the 2004-5 playoffs after winning the AFC North in the previous season.
