Who was the quarterback when the Baltimore Ravens won the Super Bowl?

Dilfer, Trent Trent Farris Dilfer (born March 13, 1972) is a retired American football quarterback and commentator who spent 14 seasons in the National Football League (NFL). He is most recognized for his role as the Baltimore Ravens' starting quarterback during their Super Bowl-winning season in 2000. Before that season began, he was drafted by the Ravens with the third overall pick in the first round of the 2000 NFL Draft.

He played college football at Colorado College. After graduating from high school in 1991, he attended Colorado College for two years before transferring to Duke University where he completed his degree program. At Duke, Dilfer started 31 games over three seasons before being drafted by the Ravens. As a Raven, he started all 16 regular season games in which he appeared and two playoff contests. He threw for a career-high 4,643 yards while leading the Ravens to a 12-4 record and their first Super Bowl victory over New York Giants. Dilfer was awarded the MVP trophy after throwing four touchdowns and no interceptions in the game.

After the Ravens lost their first two games in 2001, new head coach John Harbaugh replaced Dilfer with former San Diego Chargers starter Philip Rivers. Although Dilfer had been the team's starter since 1996, the move was not met with criticism from fans or media members.

When did the Baltimore Ravens start playing football?

The Baltimore Ravens are an American professional gridiron football club headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland, that competes in the National Football League's American Football Conference (AFC). Despite being a very new franchise, having played their first game in 1996, the Ravens won Super Bowls in 2001 and 2013.

Before they started playing games, the Ravens were one of the most successful franchises in NFL history. They have won more than 20 games five times and made the playoffs ten out of 11 years from 1996 to 2005. The only season without a playoff appearance was 2002 when they finished with just 7 wins - their only other losing season.

The Ravens began play in the National Football League in 1996 as part of the expansion team league-wide popularity after the 1994 World Cup win by America's Team, the Pittsburgh Steelers. Before then, there had been no Baltimore NFL team since the original Baltimore Colts moved to Indianapolis for the 1954 season. The new Ravens drew positive reviews from both fans and critics, making the playoffs each year until 2000 when they lost to Denver in the Divisional Round. In 2001, they defeated New England in Super Bowl XL.

After their first two seasons, Art Modell decided to move the team to Cleveland because he could not get a new stadium built in Baltimore. A group of investors from Baltimore came together and bought the rights to use the name "Ravens" for $25 million.

Who were the Baltimore Ravens before?

The Ravens were founded in 1996 after Cleveland Browns owner Art Modell intended to relocate his historic club, and he secured an agreement with the city of Baltimore to do so. Before joining the NFL, the Baltimore Orioles were one of baseball's most successful teams, winning four World Series titles between 1954 and 1967. However, financial problems led to the team being sold in February 1990, just months before it was expected to move to Texas.

The Ravens began play in the NFL as part of the league's Divisional Playoff round. They have never missed the postseason since their inception, appearing in every season except 2002 and 2014 (both losses). As of 2016, they are one of only three remaining original franchises in the NFL (the other two being the Indianapolis Colts and New York Jets).

In their first season, the Ravens finished with a 7-9 record but made the playoffs as a wild card team. In their second season, they improved to 10-6 and won their first playoff game but lost later that year at Florida when Neil Armstrong took the field as a punter for the Miami Dolphins. The following year, they rebounded from this loss by winning their first NFL title after beating the San Francisco 49ers 26-17 in the finale.

What year did the Ravens have the best defense?

2000 BALTIMORE—Jan. 28, 2001, will be remembered as the day the Baltimore Ravens' defense was crowned. The Ravens' 34-7 victory against the New York Giants in Super Bowl XXXV certified the 2000 team as the finest single-season defense in NFL history. The Ravens allowed only 102 points over the last 12 games of the season and didn't allow a touchdown until after halftime of their divisional-round game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. They went on to shut out the Giants for three straight quarters before winning their first championship in school history.

The 2000 Ravens are also famous for their comeback win against the San Francisco 49ers in the playoffs. Trailing by 14 points with less than four minutes remaining, Baltimore scored 21 unanswered points to advance to its second consecutive Super Bowl.

Their success can be attributed to the presence of seven players who were selected for the Pro Bowl during the season. Linebacker Ray Lewis led all defensive players with nine sacks and two interceptions. He was joined in the backfield by fellow linebacker Bart Scott, who had eight sacks of his own. Cornerback Rod Woodson and strong safety Tony Siragusa each had seven interceptions, while Woodson and Scott also returned those picks for touchdowns. Free safety Michael McCrary and middle linebacker Gary Brackett both had six interceptions. Only Lewis (45) and Scott (42) reached the half-century mark on sacks.

What was the Baltimore football team before the Ravens?

The Baltimore Colts The Ravens were the fourth Baltimore-based professional football team to win a league championship. The NFL Baltimore Colts came before them in 1958, 1959, and 1970, the USFL Stars in 1985, and the CFL Stallions in 1995.

The Baltimore baseball team won six American League titles between 1954 and 1969, and one World Series title in 1924. The Orioles have played at Memorial Stadium on Collins Park Road since its opening in 1932. The team is owned by Peter G. Angelos et al.

The original Baltimore Football Club was founded in 1892. They played their home games at West Park Stadium in North Baltimore until it was destroyed by fire in 1904. The team then moved into new Foulke's Field, which had been built for them by local businessmen who did not want to pay rent to John McGraw's New York Giants. After one season, the club decided to move to Chicago where they became the Chicago Bears. The Baltimore football team has never played in a major league stadium before or after Foulke's Field. However, they did play one game at College Park in 1916 before moving into their own facility (which was also used by the University of Maryland) the following year.

The NFL's Baltimore Ravens are just one of many names that have been used by various teams from around the city over the years.
