Ravens Gameday

Quarter by quarter


A rare miss by Stover

The Ravens got a gift when Atlanta failed to convert fourth-and-one from its 39-yard line. But Matt Stover missed his first field-goal attempt in 13 months, hooking a 42-yarder wide left. The Falcons took advantage of a 36-yard punt return by Allen Rossum when Michael Vick hit Michael Jenkins on a crossing route for a 13-yard touchdown with 1:45 remaining.


Falcons: Jenkins 13 pass from Vick (Andersen kick), 1:45.


Matching futility on offense

Neither offense made much of a dent, with each team managing to gain 45 yards each. The Ravens' futility on offense was crystallized on the team's final possession of the first half after B.J. Sams returned a punt 65 yards to Atlanta's 14-yard line. Two plays later, Steve McNair fumbled the snap from center Mike Flynn and Falcons linebacker Michael Boley recovered at the 16.

Sams' returns spark rally

The Ravens rallied to take the lead on Stover's 29-yard field goal and - after Sams returned a punt 59 yards - Jamal Lewis' 2-yard touchdown run. Morten Andersen's 21-yard field goal tied it, but a 59-yard kickoff return by Sams led to another Lewis touchdown run.


Ravens: FG Stover 29, 9:18.

Ravens: J.Lewis 2 run (Stover kick), 4:32.

Falcons: FG Andersen 21, 1:58.

Ravens: J.Lewis 16 run (Stover kick), :20.

4 -- RAVENS 24, FALCONS 10

Lewis' 3rd TD run seals win The Ravens essentially put the game away with an eight-minute, nine-second possession in the middle of the quarter that ended with Lewis' third touchdown of the game, a 5-yarder up the middle. After Atlanta failed to convert on fourth-and-eight from its 29, the Ravens converted their second fourth-down situation and ran out the clock.


Ravens: J.Lewis 5 run (Stover kick), 3:02.
