3. Duane Starks:
Duane Starks was a fantastic cornerback for the Ravens historically good defense. Starks was a big reason why the 2000 Ravens defense was a turnover machine; he had six interceptions in the regular season and three interceptions in the playoffs. His most memorable play with the purple and black was his 49 yard interception return for a touchdown in Super Bowl XXXV.
Starks jumped right in front of Amani Toomer. Kerry Collins never saw it coming and it equaled six points for the Ravens. Starks flew down the field for a beautiful kick return. Starks and the Ravens secondary dominated in that game. Collins only threw for 112 yards and he was picked off four times. The greatest defense balled out that day, and Starks made the greatest play of all.
The interception made it a 17-0 lead for the Ravens. At that moment, it felt like the game was over. It was a statement, a message to the football world. Nobody was taking down the Baltimore Ravens on that day.
