Baltimore Ravens: Top 5 Performances of all-time
Ray Lewis against the Titans in 2000 Playoffs
The divisional round of the playoffs is when we knew the Ravens were going to the Super Bowl. They still had to get past the Oakland Raiders, but beating the Tennessee Titans was the moment we knew it was a Super Bowl season. That Titans team was incredibly good, and they were the perfect test for the Ravens. Baltimore was a huge underdog in the game.

Eddie George was one of the toughest running backs the NFL has ever seen. There is a reason he won the Hiesman Trophy with the Ohio State Buckeyes. George was one of the most reliable weapons in the NFL, but the Ravens were able to keep him under 100 yards rushing. Ray Lewis had 11 tackles in the contest, but his biggest play was a pick six.
Lewis intercepted a pass intended for George and ran it back 50 yards for a touchdown. Much like his iconic crushing of Darren Sproles, this play was all instinct and football smarts. He jumped the route, timed it perfectly and put the final nail in the Titans coffin. In a game where the offense didn’t do much at all, Lewis and the defense took care of business.
