Stover will be honored Sunday

Kicker to be inducted into team's Ring of Honor

November 15, 2011|By Jeff Zrebiec

Matt Stover, the leading scorer in Ravens' history and an important member of the 2000 Super Bowl-winning team, will be placed in the team's Ring of Honor at halftime of Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Stover played 18 seasons with the Ravens/Browns before finishing his career with the Indianapolis Colts in 2009. Only middle linebacker Ray Lewis has had a longer tenure with the Ravens than Stover did.

With the Ravens, Stover accounted for 1,464 points, went 354-for-418 on field-goal attempts and 402-for-403 in extra points.  

Stover had 14 career game-winning field goals, including three against the Bengals, the Ravens' opponent Sunday.

He will become the fifth former Raven player to enter the Ring of Honor. The others are running back Earnest Byner (2001), defensive end Michael McCrary (2004), linebacker Peter Boulware (2006) and left tackle Jonathan Ogden (2008).
