Ravens Gameday

November 10, 2008|By JAMISON HENSLEY

SCORING MILESTONE: With a season-high 41 points, the Ravens have scored at least 27 in four consecutive games - the first time that has happened in team history. Yesterday's total was the most points they've scored on the road since Nov. 7, 1999, when they hammered Cleveland, 41-9.

RE-EMERGENCE OF TODD HEAP: The tight end had two touchdowns (catches of 1 and 14 yards), ending his scoreless drought at 12 games. He finished with team-high five catches for 58 yards after not getting a pass thrown his way a week ago.

DERRICK MASON HURT: The Ravens' leading receiver dislocated his left shoulder midway through the first quarter, but he returned in the second half to make three catches for 41 yards.

JUST FOR KICKS: Matt Stover tied the record for most consecutive extra points made (371), and kickoff specialist Steve Hauschka kicked a 54-yard field goal on his first NFL attempt.

AFC NORTH WATCH: The Ravens' fourth straight win - their longest streak since December 2006 - improved them to 6-3 and moved them into a first-place tie with the Pittsburgh Steelers (who have the tiebreaker edge because they beat the Ravens this season).

THEY SAID IT: "Games like this are good for us to get into that rhythm and figure out that we can really put it to teams. I just think that this is a sign of what we're going to see in the future." - Heap, on the Ravens' largest margin of victory on the road since routing Cleveland, 35-0, on Dec. 21, 2003.

PICKING ON THE BACKUP: The Ravens intercepted backup quarterback Sage Rosenfels four times, including one by defensive tackle Haloti Ngata in the end zone. Ray Lewis (left) had two interceptions, marking his first multiple-interception game in seven seasons.

COMING ATTRACTION: The Ravens will try to win four straight road games for the first time in their 13-year history when they play at the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants. In their most recent meeting (2004), the Ravens beat the Giants, 37-14, forcing three turnovers by then-rookie quarterback Eli Manning.
