Ravens' road to Super Bowl glory
Dilfer connected on 23 of 36 passes for 281 yards and two touchdowns, including a 46-yard touchdown throw to wide receiver Qadry Ismail in the first quarter.

The Titans made a final drive, aided by a 20-yard scramble by quarterback Steve McNair that set up a 43-yard field-goal attempt for Al Del Greco, who missed wide right to end the game.

"I wouldn't be surprised if we have to come back here for the playoffs," right tackle Harry Swayne said. "If that's the case, it'd be like, 'We've been here; let's do it again.'"

The victory put the Ravens in an enviable position with four of the team's final five games to be played at home.

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.

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.
