WORST PASS 1: On first and 10 from the Giants 44, Collins intended a pass for Amani Toomer. But Baltimore's Duane Starks stepped in front of it and returned it 49 yards for a touchdown. That made it 17-0 Ravens.

BEST RETURN 1: The Giants' Ron Dixon returned Matt Stover's kickoff 97 yards to make it 17-7, just after Kim Herring's interception return.

BEST RETURN 2: The Ravens' Jermaine Lewis returned the kickoff after Dixon's touchdown 84 yards to make it 24-7. It was the first time in Super Bowl history that there were back-to-back kickoff returns for touchdowns.

WORST PASS 2: On second and 18 from the Giants 27, Collins threw a pass intended for Ike Hilliard. Herring stepped in front of Hilliard for the interception, Collins' third.
