    Found this on Youtube. The Burnett hit can be found at 1:30.

    More than a couple of the defensive plays mentioned above are also hidden in this fine video. Happy watching!

    His definitions and arguments were so clear in his own mind that he was unable to understand how any reasonable person could honestly differ with him.

    I would add a vote for the Banks to Sharpe TD against Jax in 2000. That play, to me, told the team and the league that they belonged.

    I would also add Jamal's 82-yard TD against the Browns in 2003. At least one of those runs belongs on the list, IMO.

    Otherwise, great list and I totally agree on the top play.

    Thank you!
    I grabbed it (and 2 other clips suggested there) converted it from flv to AVI (DivX and MP3 components) and upped it to megaupload for anyone who isn't skilled at "collecting" stuff

    I would put Mitchell's return of the blocked FG at the top of the list. Tennessee was playing better than the Ravens in that game, and the play was a 10-point swing that turned the tide. Without that play, we probably lose the game.

    We were so dominant over Denver in the playoff game that no one play was nearly as important.

    In terms of thrills, how about Stover kicking the winning FG vs. Seattle to cap the big comeback in '03. Never have so few been so loud. You'd think we had won the Super Bowl.

    Agree completely. That was Ben R. times two.

    Akili Smith was a different QB after that play. Not just for that game, but for his career.

    My vote would be the Shannon Sharp 96 yard TD in the AFC Championship game.

    That was when I really began to really believe we were gonna win it all.

    That play just stands out in my mind.

    I also love the CMAC return on Monday night and one of my all time favorites was the Ed Reed Sack, forced fumble, fumble recovery, TD all in one play vs the Skins.

    But they did not come in huge games.

    Too many from the playoffs vs. regular season games which deserve their nod. A few more that I haven't seen mentioned, one of which was from our Superbowl cause IMO it deserves more than the Starks INT...

    - Superbowl, Lewis tracking down Tiki on a sweep early in the game. Tiki was one of the fastest in the game, and Lewis took him down before he even turned the corner. That play established just how dominant we were that season and for that game. You could really tell that play sucked the life out of the Gints offense. Like "Man, if we can't even get outside with our fastest guy, how are we gonna make anything work?"

    - Faulk's fumble to beat the Colts on their first trip back to Baltimore.

    - Lewis crushing Coles across the middle.

    - Dilfer's TD pass to cap the come-back scoring drive at the end of regulation vs. the Titans, right after throwing the INT TD.

    - Bart Scott leveling Roethlisberger.

    - C -

    Re: Best Play in Ravens' History

    I have 2 favorites.., tho' neither was real important. The short field goal attempt that CMAC returned
    for a TD... including the bone crushing hit by Ray. Then there is the very unimportant play when Jamal ground Porter's face in the dirt at the end of a run.... Can't buy THAT with mastercard!

    The Jermaine Lewis TD return in the Super Bowl. It wasn't just the play but the timing of it as he answer'd the Giants TD return with one of his own.




  10. Re: Best Play in Ravens' History

    The list here is fantastic and this one, I don't think belongs in the Top Ten, but should recieve a nomination for 10b. I didn't see this and my apologies if someone mentioned it, but Nov 12, 2001 Monday Night Football in Tennessee. A 16-10 win after the Ravens Defense stuffed McNair to end the game on a QB sneak. Sharper, Corey Harris and McCrary all in the game saving tackle. This win kept us alive for the Playoffs and pretty much knocked the Titan's out. It was also the Titans 2nd loss at Adelphia Coliseum(the 1st is in the Top Ten)

    I almost forgot about that one. That was Joe Frazier like. Jamal not only finished off Joey Porter with the full face plant stiff arm all the way to and through the ground, but he had alredy dropped Larry Foote in the open field with a running haymaker to the chops.

    BEST RUN BY JAMAL EVER.

    The one vs the Clowns when he no look stiff armed some sucker whle turning on the jets and gaining separation from a CB was also special.

    That whole 2066 yard season was very fun to watch. J.O. and Zeus, Big Ed just out there mauling 9 in the box fronts and Jamal running right through a guy on every other carry.

    Re: Best Play in Ravens' History

    The playoff run, the Super Bowl, they were full of thrilling and memorable moments. But my top two favorite Ravens plays didn't happen that year.

    Number one in my book is the McAllister return, for many reasons. First, it was a crazy play that no one could have seen coming... and yet the Ravens had practiced exactly that scenario and made the most of it. Second, it set the record for the longest play in NFL history, though that's been broken three or four times since. Third, Ray Lewis's block... amazing. Replay that over and over. But most importantly, the Denver Broncos were 3-0 and looked outstanding that year, and the Ravens had come off a bye, 0-2, and were routinely listed as the worst team in football. I can remember speculation that we wouldn't win a game, that Denver would blow us out at home on Monday night by 40+, that we were experiencing the biggest two-year collapse ever... and we showed them up big time.

    Second, the first Jamal Lewis TD from his 295 game against the Browns... I woke up my girlfriend with all the yelling I was doing as he ran. It was the start of something special that day... and though that record too has fallen, it'll stand as a Ravens record for a very long time.
