|Scouts Inc.'s take ...|
QB Steve McNair (right) settled down and got into rhythm after throwing two critical interceptions and taking a safety. After the Titans restricted the running lanes for RB Jamal Lewis, forcing the Ravens to pass, head coach Brian Billick relied more on the Ravens' exotic passing attack by utilizing multiple personnel grouping that created individual mismatches.
Defensively, the Ravens made the proper in-game adjustments and disrupted the rhythm and flow of the Titans' passing game. Baltimore brought up SS Dawan Landry as an extra defender in the box on heavy run-down tendencies, which put a lot of pressure on QB Vince Young. Defensive coordinator Rex Ryan relied more on his multiple zone dogs while playing more match-up zones on the back end in coverage that confused the young signal-caller.
Baltimore kicker Matt Stover, who went 2-for-2 on field goals against Tennessee, has connected on 36 consecutive field goal attempts, third most in NFL history.
The Ravens set a record for their 11-year-old franchise for the largest deficit overcome (19 points) in a victory. Correspondingly, it was the largest lead that the Titans or their predecessors, the Oilers, had ever possessed in a regular-season game that they went on to lose. Of course, the Houston Oilers had the granddaddy of all postseason blown leads: In the 1992 playoffs, they held a 32-point lead over the Bills only to see Buffalo come back to win, 41-38, in overtime.• For more Elias Says, Click here
The Ravens' previous biggest comeback was 17 points against Seattle on Nov. 23, 2003, a game they won in overtime. ... McNair's 65-yarder was the fifth-longest of his career. ... The Ravens sent out their three ex-Titans -- McNair, Mason and Samari Rolle -- as their captains for the coin toss.
