WORST NON-PLAY: Facing first and 10 at the 50 with 10:54 left, Giants quarterback Kerry Collins pitched wide to Tiki Barber. He swept right, then handed the ball to Ike Hilliard, who sprinted the other way and pitched back to Collins. He heaved it downfield to Ron Dixon but it was into double coverage, and Collins was fortunate it wasn't intercepted.

BEST THROW: Ravens quarterback Trent Dilfer's 44-yard strike to Qadry Ismail hit him in stride to convert third and 2 from Baltimore's 20.

BEST TACKLE: Cornerback Dave Thomas made a touchdown-saving stop, grabbing Ismail's right ankle and tripping him at New York's 36 with 2:56 left.
