Eight years later, Justin Armour can picture the play: a 54-yard pass that he caught for a game-winning touchdown in overtime. The Ravens won in Atlanta that day, giving Armour his brief fling with fame. Of his 37 catches for the Ravens in 1999, none was bigger for the 6-foot-4, 210-pound wide receiver. "I'd just come into the game, and when I started downfield, the safety took one look at my big ol' white legs and let me go," Armour said. "The best part was that I caught the ball in the corner of the end zone where the traveling Ravens fans were sitting."

This time, there were no excuses. There was only one turnover and no fourth-quarter collapse. The receivers got open, and the inconsistent quarterback was consistent. A running back rushed for 100 yards, and the team passed for more than 300 yards.Finally.

Denver (13-1) at Miami (9-5)Time: 8: 20, chs. 2, 7.Line: Broncos by 4 1/2 .Vs. spread: Broncos 9-5; Dolphins 8-4.Outlook: This was supposed to be The Game, the one that would decide if Denver recorded an unbeaten regular season, but the Giants took care of that last week. Denver-Miami, however, still provides plenty to anticipate. It gives us ballyhooed QBs in Denver's John Elway and Miami's Dan Marino, the only two in league history to have compiled 50,000 passing yards. It gives us RB Terrell Davis against a Miami defense that has allowed just 8.7 points a game at home, where the Dolphins are 6-1 this season.

When the NFL free-agent market reopens Tuesday morning, the Ravens will be shopping for a veteran wide receiver or a defensive tackle as possible starters, and maybe a veteran linebacker or safety who can fill out the special teams.Teams get salary-cap breaks by waiting until June 1 to release players, but the Ravens are not expected to cut any notable players, as they did last year in terminating the remainder of quarterback Vinny Testaverde's multi-year contract.But Ozzie Newsome, the Ravens' vice president of player personnel, said the team is a "million plus" under the salary cap and in good shape to make some moves if certain players become available.

The words spoken last week by former Ravens wide receiver Floyd Turner seemed a little strange to Justin Armour.Turner implied, after he was cut by the Ravens, that the reason he did not get that final receiving spot was that he was not given an equal opportunity, partly because of the longstanding relationship between Armour and coach Brian Billick.Armour says he was surprised to hear talk of favoritism from Turner, whom he considered a friend during training camp."Floyd and I had a great relationship," Armour said.

The Ravens' offensive line is rounding back into healthy form, now that right tackle Harry Swayne has rejoined the practice routine for the first time in almost three weeks.Swayne went through a full practice yesterday, did some extra running afterward, and pronounced himself nearly ready for Sunday's game against Buffalo.Swayne suffered a lower left leg contusion against Atlanta on Oct. 3. He practiced on a limited basis the following week but did not play against Tennessee, then suffered a setback that knocked him out of the Kansas City game last Thursday.

CINCINNATI -- Justin Armour and Qadry Ismail had been the mainstays in the Ravens' often-sputtering passing game before yesterday. The other guys picked a fine time to show up in yesterday's 34-31 victory over the Bengals. Wide receiver Patrick Johnson resurfaced after an extended absence to have the best game of his career. Wide receiver Billy Davis, whose football life had been reduced primarily to special teams work after joining the Ravens this year, produced the team's biggest play from scrimmage in his best performance of 1999.

Ravens wide receivers coach Milt Jackson usually has a cool demeanor. But ask him about Jermaine Lewis being the so-called No. 1 receiver, and Jackson raises his voice a little and starts talking with his hands, trying to get his point across."

Ravens coach Brian Billick remained confident and optimistic about starting quarterback Stoney Case yesterday, one day after Case turned in a subpar performance in the team's 14-11 loss to the Tennessee Titans.The game against Tennessee should have been a showcase for Case. The Ravens were playing an AFC Central rival, one of the best defensive teams in the league, and had a chance to distinguish themselves against a possibly playoff-bound team.But Case completed only 15 of 37 passes for 207 yards, and was 7-for-19 for 91 yards in the second half after Tennessee put seven or eight players near the line of scrimmage to stop running back Errict Rhett.

The Ravens displayed more desire and passion in one game yesterday than they did in the previous three seasons. First, running back Errict Rhett talked trash and accidentally screamed into the official's microphone on the field that he was "running like a truck. " Injured offensive tackle Harry Swayne limped through play after play late in the game because the team already had lost another starting tackle to injury in the first half. Then, after a special teams tackle late in the game, linebacker Jamie Sharper punched at the air and head-butted teammates.The Ravens overcame injuries as well as obstacles to stun a Georgia Dome crowd of 50,712 when Stoney Case completed a 54-yard touchdown pass deep over the middle to receiver Justin Armour with 12: 31 left in sudden-death overtime for a 19-13 win over the Atlanta Falcons.
