Ed Reed's Jacket Catches Fire (Video)

A sideline heater nearly ruined Ed Reed's Sunday.

Reed had two interceptions in the Ravens' 20-10 win over Cleveland -- a win that secured Baltimore's spot in the postseason. But Reed sat a little too close to a heater on the Ravens' sideline, and his jacket caught fire. Reed managed to throw the smoking coat off and walk away with a smile on his face.

"I think you've got your hook for your story: Ed was on fire," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. "I did not see it catch on fire. I was over there and he told me not to get too close because I might catch on fire. I didn't realize that he actually had caught on fire. ... And he really was on fire. He just played so well. He's such a factor back there."
