Eagles 0 Ravens 0

Both teams played cautiously in the first quarter. Except for a few nice runs by Le'Ron McClain, the Ravens did nothing on offense. The same held true for the Eagles, who finally got a drive started at end of the quarter that looked promising, with Philadelphia moving into Ravens territory.

It looked as if the Ravens had taken control of the game, intercepting the Eagles' Donovan McNabb twice and forcing him to fumble once. But with 1:37 left in the quarter, Philadelphia's Quintin Demps went 100 yards with the kickoff after a 1-yard touchdown reception by Daniel Wilcox had given the Ravens a 10-point lead.

After being burned for a 100-yard kickoff return in the first half, the Ravens' special teams came up with a big play. Backup linebacker Jameel McClain, a Philadelphia native, blocked Sav Rocca's punt out of the end zone with 6:01 left in the quarter.
