The Baltimore Ravens will be watching Super Bowl 51, but the franchise has great memories from their Super Bowl wins. Which Ravens shined the brightest in the big game?
The Baltimore Ravens won Super Bowl XXXV in the 2000 season. 12 years later Ray Lewis and the defense won the Super Bowl after a goal line stand. Both Super Bowls were magic. In the years between the Super Bowls, the Ravens had come so close to winning it all. In 2011, the Ravens were a Lee Evans catch in the end zone away, from playing the Giants in the Super Bowl.
The Ravens went to the playoffs for five straight seasons, winning a game in each postseason appearance. In 2008 the Ravens lost in the AFC Championship Game. In 2006, the Ravens had a first round bye and a 13-3 record. If the Ravens learned anything in those years in between their two Super Bowl parades, it’s how hard winning the Super Bowl is. The Super Bowl is the ultimate championship in professional sports. One bad game knocks you out of the playoffs, and only 12 of the 32 teams even get to playoffs, in the first place.
The biggest stage brings out the biggest play-makers. Here are the Ravens that stepped up to the biggest moment. These Ravens made legendary plays that will go down in history as some of the most important moments in the history of football.
