In honor of Ed Reed making his possible return to Baltimore on Sunday, the ESPN Ravens team page is counting down the most memorable moments for the former Ravens safety all week. Because Reed built a career off the "pick six," I thought it would be appropriate to list his top six performances:

No. 4: Stealing a win from the Redskins

Date: Oct. 10, 2004

What happened: The Ravens needed a spark in a regular season game at Washington. Reed delivered it three times. He scored a touchdown on a fumble recovery after stripping quarterback Mark Brunell on a safety blitz, stopped Clinton Portis for a two-yard loss on a third-and-1 on the next series, then threw a block that sprung rookie free agent B.J. Sams for a 78-yard punt return -- all in a 2 1/2-minute span in the third quarter. As a result, the Ravens rallied from a 10-0 halftime deficit to score 14 points without their offense taking the field.

What Reed said: "Don't quit. That's what we preach to each other. We stuck together as a team, and we fought hard for 60 minutes and prevailed in the end."

Stat to remember: 10 -- Touchdowns that Reed scored at Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium. He reached the end zone only three times on the road: a touchdown off a blocked punt in Arizona (2003), this fumble return in Washington (2004) and a punt return for a score in Cincinnati (2007).
