Best and worst

September 04, 2000|By Ken Murray

Best re-run: The Ravens' Tony Banks hitting Qadry Ismail for a 53-yard touch-down pass in the first quarter one play after overthrowing him in the end zone

Worst call: Inserting Kordell Stewart at quarterback at the goal line in the fourth quarter was like putting a match to gasoline. With Stewart, the Steelers didn't gain an inch, and he was booed off the field.

Best impersonation of Jerome Bettis: That would be the Ravens' Priest Holmes, who rushed for 119 yards, while the real Bus had 8 yards on 9 carries.

Most conservative call: Aside from a spike, the Ravens called three runs in four plays in the red zone at the end of the first half, settling for a 26- yard Matt Stover field goal.

Best line: "I didn't know he was out there; I was delirious." -- Ravens defensive tackle Tony Siragusa, of Kordell Stewart's fourth-quarter cameo at quarterback.

Worst break: Ravens' Jeff Mitchell suffering a left knee-cap contusion, just as he's on the verge of becoming a dominant center.
