The victory put the Ravens in an enviable position with four of the team's final five games to be played at home.
Player of the Game: TE Shannon Sharpe – eight receptions for 92 yards, including a 36-yard reception on the final drive
Week 12: Ravens 27, Cowboys 0
The Ravens rolled to their fourth shutout of the season with a drubbing of the Dallas Cowboys.
Dallas never moved closer to the goal line than the Ravens' 28. The Ravens outgained the Cowboys 479-192 in total yards, and running back Jamal Lewis eclipsed the 100-yard plateau with four minutes remaining in the first half. The Ravens' 250 rushing yards set a franchise record, and the defense allowed Dallas to cross midfield only three times.
The defense forced Dallas quarterback Troy Aikman to throw three interceptions; safety Rod Woodson recorded his 58th career interception in the second quarter, and safety Corey Harris and linebacker Ray Lewis also had picks.
Jamal Lewis finished with the second-best rushing effort in Ravens history with 187 yards on 28 carries. Quarterback Trent Dilfer threw two touchdown passes -- a 40-yard strike to wide receiver Qadry Ismail in the first quarter and a 59-yard dart to tight end Shannon Sharpe in the second. Dilfer completed 18 of 24 passes for 242 yards.

Week 13: Ravens 44, Browns 7
Jamal Lewis rushed for 170 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Ravens' victory over the Cleveland Browns. Lewis broke Priest Holmes' single-season rushing record of 1,008 yards with 1,095 in only 10 starts.
"I'm not trying to be just any running back," Lewis said. "I'm trying to be great. I want to be great. Whatever is going to make me great, that's what I'm trying to do."
The Ravens gained 461 yards of offense as quarterback Trent Dilfer threw a 46-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Patrick Johnson and a 2-yard scoring pass to fullback Sam Gash in a 24-point second quarter. After Cleveland completed an 86-yard touchdown drive to start the game, the Ravens posted 44 unanswered points with a defensive effort that held the Browns to a season-low five first downs.
