Updated: Sept. 1, 2013 at 10:57 a.m. Friend(s) Email More Columns > Ray Lewis will go down as one of the greatest linebackers in NFL history, and he almost certainly will be a first-ballot Hall of Fame r. It turns out that Lewis also is a noted conspiracy theorist. During an interview for NFL Films' "America's Game" series on the Baltimore Ravens ' Super Bowl XLVII victory, (airing Monday at 9 p.m. ET on NFL Network) Lewis let on that he didn't think the infamous power outage was an accident.

No. (Laughs) No way. "Now listen, if you grew up like I grew up -- and you grew up in a household like I grew up -- then sometimes your lights might go out, because times get hard.

Silver: Prophecies for 2013 Michael Silver peers into his crystal ball, making eight predictions about this season. Who will be named MVP? More ... Gil Brandt : Seahawks over Bengals .

Albert Breer : 49ers over Bengals . On the 25th anniversary of Montana-to-Taylor , these clubs meet for the third time in the big game -- and the result is the same as it was back then, with Jim Harbaugh , Colin Kaepernick and Co. winning the first championship of a new dynastic era in San Francisco. Bucky Brooks : 49ers over Broncos . The 49ers stage their own pregame blackout to jump-start Colin Kaepernick and his teammates to a surprisingly easy win over the Broncos for the franchise's sixth title.
