Super Bowl XXXV

Super Bowl XXXV was an American football game between the American Football Conference champion Baltimore Ravens and the National Football Conference champion New York Giants to decide the National Football League champion for the 2000 season. The Ravens defeated the Giants by a score of 34–7, tied for the seventh largest Super Bowl margin of victory with Super Bowl XXXVII; the game was played on January 2001 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. The Ravens, who posted a 12–4 regular season record, became the third wild card team to win the Super Bowl and the second in four years; the city of Baltimore had its first Super Bowl title since the Baltimore Colts' triumph thirty years prior and became the first city to win major professional football championships with four franchises, the others being the Colts, the 1985 Baltimore Stars of the United States Football League and the 1995 Baltimore Stallions of the Canadian Football League. The Giants entered the game seeking to go 3–0 in Super Bowls after finishing the regular season with a 12–4 record.

Baltimore allowed only 152 yards of offense by New York, recorded 4 sacks, forced 5 turnovers. All 16 of the Giants' possessions ended with punts or interceptions, with the exception of the last one, which ended when time expired in the game. New York's lone touchdown, a 97-yard kickoff return, was answered by Baltimore on an 84-yard touchdown return on the ensuing kickoff; the Giants became the first team since the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl XXIII not to score an offensive touchdown and the fifth overall Baltimore linebacker Ray Lewis, who made 3 solo tackles, 2 assists, blocked 4 passes, was named Super Bowl MVP. Counting the 1958 and 1959 NFL Championship Games, this is the fourth title game that involved teams from Baltimore and New York, the first such matchup since Super Bowl III, in which the Jets upset the heavily-favored Colts. NFL owners awarded Super Bowl XXXV to Tampa during their 1996 meeting in New Orleans. Tampa became the fourth metropolitan area to host the game at least three times, joining New Orleans and Los Angeles.

Other cities under consideration at the meeting were Miami and Los Angeles. Owners planned on selecting only two hosts, but decided to name three after strong showings by the respective delegations. Tampa was promised a Super Bowl after committing to the construction of a new stadium. Miami and Tampa were selected to host XXXIII, XXXIV, XXXV, respectively; the Ravens entered the game with the second-best defense in allowing yards in the league, with the fewest points allowed and the fewest rushing yards allowed during the regular season. At the time, they were the only team to hold the opposition to under 1,000 yards rushing in a season since the NFL adopted a 16-game schedule in 1978. Baltimore's 165 points allowed broke the record set by the 1986 Chicago Bears, who had given up 187 points; the Ravens' defense had held their opponents to 10 or fewer points in 11 games, including four shutouts. The defense was led by a trio of outstanding linebackers: Peter Boulware, Jamie Sharper, Ray Lewis. During the regular season, Boulware recorded 7 sacks, while Sharper forced 5 fumbles and made one interception.

Lewis was named the NFL Defensive Player of the Year by recording 3 sacks, making 138 tackles, intercepting 2 passes. Pro Bowl defensive tackle Sam Adams and veteran Tony Siragusa anchored the defensive line, along with defensive ends Rob Burnett and Pro Bowler Michael McCrary. Baltimore had an outstanding corps of defensive backs led by Pro Bowl veteran safety Rod Woodson, who along with Kim Herring, Duane Starks, Chris McAlister combined for 17 interceptions. On offense, the Ravens' main strength was led by rookie Jamal Lewis and Priest Holmes. Tight end Shannon Sharpe recorded 67 receptions for 810 yards and 5 touchdowns. Receiver Qadry Ismail added 49 receptions for four touchdowns; the offensive line was anchored by tackle Jonathan Ogden, named to the Pro Bowl for the 4th consecutive season. On special teams, Jermaine Lewis ranked second in the NFL with 36 punt returns for 578 yards and two touchdowns, while catching 19 passes for 161 yards and another score. Kicker Matt Stover led the NFL in field goals made and attempted, while ranking 7th in field goal percentage and second in scoring.

However, the Baltimore offense was mediocre, ranking only 13th in the league in scoring, 16th in total yards, 23rd in passing yards. The team had a lot of trouble scoring, at one point they went through five games without scoring an offensive touchdown, but they managed to regroup, as head coach Brian Billick forbade anyone to use the "P-word" until the team played in it. The Ravens' outspoken defensive lineman, Tony Siragusa, did utter the word "playoffs" on two separate occasions and was fined, albeit a measly sum of $500. Since the fine were symbolic and playful, Billick explained himself by saying, "He got a $400 fine for doing it on national television and $100 for doing it on his radio show; the reason being because no one
