Sunday's heartbreaking Ravens loss brings back memories of other NFL games that were decided at the finish in bizarre and controversial fashion. In some cases, the events led to rule changes, and one of them was an even bigger disappointment for Baltimore. Music City Miracle. Jan. 8, 2000. Buffalo at Tennessee. AFC wild-card playoff. Buffalo's Steve Christie had just kicked a field goal to put the Bills ahead 16-15 with 16 seconds left. On the ensuing kickoff, the Titans' Lorenzo Neal fielded the ball, started right and handed it off to tight end Frank Wycheck (Maryland)

When Norv Turner was named coach of the Washington Redskins in 1994, he quickly started sweeping out many of the players left from the Joe Gibbs regime.One of the victims was Frank Wycheck, the former University of Maryland tight end who had fit into Gibbs' system as an H-back."I just didn't think I was getting a fair shake up there. He [Turner] wanted to get rid of all the old guys and I don't think it was right. They brought in all those guys from Dallas and it sort of backfired on him," Wycheck said.

If the Ravens want to rattle the Tennessee offense, they may need to tug away the Titans' security blanket. Since Tennessee quarterback Steve McNair entered the NFL five years ago, H-back Frank Wycheck has been the Titans' favorite target while becoming one of the Ravens' biggest tormentors. The former Maryland standout has made himself at home against the Ravens' defense with 43 catches in eight meetings. The Ravens will counter with coverage by committee, rotating as many as five defenders on Wycheck out of their basic set. Although it's tempting to concentrate solely on big-name receiving threats Yancey Thigpen and Carl Pickens on the outside, the Ravens know where McNair's eyes tend to wander.

Tennessee coach Jeff Fisher reportedly told his players during the week to hit the Ravens with a 2-by-4. Instead, the Ravens cold-cocked his Titans with a hammering defense. Learning of Fisher's comments only moments before the game, the Ravens uncorked a furious rebuttal in a 26-7 defeat of the Titans before a club-record 69,494 at PSINet Stadium yesterday. With the 14th victory in their past 15 tries, the Ravens (3-1) remained tied with the Cleveland Browns atop the AFC Central while dealing divisional rival Tennessee (0-3)

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Remember the Tennessee Titans' running game? Neither do they. Tennessee all but junked its running game in the face of the Ravens' defense, but Steve McNair & Co. almost made it work yesterday before falling, 24-23, at Adelphia Coliseum. While the Ravens were holding Eddie George to 28 inconsequential yards on 12 carries, McNair was riddling them for 228 yards on 21-of-34 passing and two touchdowns. "The passing game was working well; our guys were making plays," said McNair.
