The Sun remembers: Aug. 26-Sept. 1
Sept. 1, 1996: Quarterback Vinny Testaverde pumps his fist and an announced record football crowd (64,124) at Memorial Stadium whoops it up as the fledgling Ravens win their opener, 19-14 over the Oakland Raiders. "To come from behind, in front of a full house, it probably doesn't get much better than this," says Ted Marchibroda, coach of the first-year team. "It's a shame we have to play 15 more."
