After a month that pushed them to the brink of unraveling, the Ravens seized control of their season, their division and their playoff destiny yesterday. A 31-13 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals before a raucous home crowd of 69,468 spoke volumes about the Ravens. In routing their chief threat in the AFC North division, the Ravens continued to march past a troubling November, when they lost starting quarterback Kyle Boller, gave away back-to-back games on the road and faced a challenge to team unity.

We started with a goal -- to see the wild horses of the Outer Banks. But as we drove south from Richmond, Va., to Corolla, N.C., we discovered that, sometimes, the journey itself is the destination. Sticking to back roads and secondary highways, we visited grand old antebellum plantations still in operation, explored the moody landscape of an ancient swamp and stumbled onto charming towns bright with freshly painted heritage. And we let go of any route we'd planned. Matching our pace and our course to the slow rivers that meander through this tidewater country, we banished "Are we there yet?"
