The Ravens chase down Frank Gore

The team's tension-filled goal-line stand in the final minutes of the Super Bowl would not have been possible if free safety Ed Reed hadn¿t chased down 49ers running back Frank Gore with less than three minutes left. Gore took a handoff, snuck between outside linebacker Terrell Suggs and defensive end DeAngelo Tyson in the backfield and ran into open field. Reed ran down Gore -- inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe was in on the play, too -- and got just enough of him to force him out at the 10-yard line.
