A Frustrating Finish:
The Ravens lost in the Divisional Playoffs 27-7 to the Pittsburgh Steelers. It was an awful finish to a really good season. Elvis Grbac had the worst day of his career. He was sacked three times, threw three interceptions and completed only 49 percent of his passes. Any chance the Ravens had of beating the Steelers was ruined by incompetent quarterback play.
Kordell Stewart did not have a great day for the Steelers either. He threw for 154 yards and a touchdown and an interception. However, Stewart did not have to do much in this game. The Ravens beat themselves.
The Baltimore Ravens had a strong 2001 campaign. It did not have the magic of their Super Bowl XXXV run, but they made a valiant effort. They lost their best offensive player because of injury. Their new quarterback struggled and they still won 10 games.
