BALTIMORE (AP) - The Baltimore Ravens' players, coach and owner are thanking thousands of fans who packed the team's stadium to celebrate the Super Bowl victory.

The stadium was filled Tuesday to capacity Tuesday, and late-arriving fans were turned away.

Retiring linebacker Ray Lewis emerged from a tunnel onto the field, handed off the Lombardi trophy and did his signature dance, "The Squirrel."

He thanked fans for their love of the team and said he wanted to win the Super Bowl to repay Baltimore for everything it's done for him.

Safety Ed Reed told the crowd that quarterback Joe Flacco is talking about a repeat Super Bowl victory.

As the team left the stage, "We Are the Champions" played on the stadium sound system, and Lewis conducted the crowd in singing along.
