The Ravens have never played in the Metrodome. They have faced the Vikings three times in the regular season, all in Baltimore. The last time the teams met was Dec. 25, 2005, at M&T Bank Stadium, and Ravens quarterback Kyle Boller gave fans a Christmas to remember - and one of the few highlights of his career - in a 30-23 victory. It will apparently be much louder in the Metrodome on Sunday than it has been at virtually every stadium the Ravens have played.
WHAT HAPPENED: : Boller threw three touchdown passes for the second straight game - one each to Todd Heap, Mark Clayton and Derrick Mason - as the Ravens knocked the 8-7 Vikings out of the playoff hunt. Boller put the Ravens up 24-20 with a 39-yard touchdown pass to Mason just 13 seconds into the final quarter. Two field goals by Matt Stover sealed the win. The last field goal was set up by a fumble recovery by Adalius Thomas. The win left the Ravens with a 6-9 record.
