The Ravens wrapped up one of their most disappointing seasons with a 27-21 victory over the rival Pittsburgh Steelers on Dec. 30, 2007. Pittsburgh had already made the playoffs and was the No. 4 seed. It was the Ravens' first win in 76 days, ending their franchise-record losing streak at nine games. A day after the game, Ravens coach Brian Billick, who led the team to its only Super Bowl title, was fired.
WHAT HAPPENED: : Reserve running backs Musa Smith and Cory Ross helped the Ravens control the clock, quarterback Troy Smith played like a Heisman Trophy winner and David Pittman came up with two interceptions. The often-criticized Pittman had not had an interception after being the Ravens' third-round pick in the 2006 draft. Pittman's interception of reserve quarterback Charlie Batch's desperation heave sealed the win for the Ravens, who avoided matching their worst season record.
