Best and worst

Ravens 37, Bengals 0

Nfl Week 4

September 25, 2000|By Ken Murray

Most selfless contribution: Ravens RB Priest Holmes, who coached rookie starter Jamal Lewis through the week and the game. Holmes generated 99 yards (51 rushing, 48 receiving) from scrimmage himself.

Worst job security: Bengals coach Bruce Coslet, who has endured a number of lows in his five years at Cincinnati. This may have been the final humiliation.

Biggest hit: DE Rob Burnett, who knocked Bengals QB Akili Smith out of the game with a second-quarter sack off a stunt with DT Sam Adams.

Worst penalty: DT Tony Siragusa, who drew an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for throwing down the helmet of OG Matt O'Dwyer on Burnett's sack of Akili.

Best save: Ravens WR Qadry Ismail, who retrieved the ball with which Jamal Lewis scored his first NFL touchdown. Lewis had dropped it in the end zone.

Most questionable challenge: Ravens coach Brian Billick, who challenged the non-touchdown call after Travis Taylor caught a pass at the goal line with 2 minutes left. The call was upheld in replay.
