The offense's electric night began for the Ravens from the first time they touched the ball.

The first drive was jump-started by B.J. Sams' 49-yard punt return.

Five plays after Sams set the Ravens up at the Green Bay 18-yard line, Boller felt the heavy blitz and lofted a 2-yard pass over Packers safety Nick Collins to hit Heap in the end zone.

On the Ravens' second possession, they moved quickly into Green Bay territory on a Lewis 17-yard run and a 22-yard catch by Derrick Mason (which included a 14-yard face-mask penalty).

The 75-yard drive was finished off by one of the few trick plays that worked this season. Taking a direct snap, rookie receiver Mark Clatyon followed a lead block by Lewis around the right corner and scored an 11-yard touchdown.

In taking a 14-0 lead, the Ravens produced two touchdowns in the first 8:08 after cracking the goal line just 15 times in their previous 13 games.

A lethargic Packers' offense only avoided a shutout because of Ahmad Carroll's 57-yard kickoff return in the first quarter. Green Bay couldn't move past the Ravens' 9, settling for Ryan Longwell's 27-yard field goal that shaved the Ravens' lead to 14-3.

The second quarter was owned by the Ravens, who held the ball for over half that period (8:26) on one drive.

Starting at their own 4, the Ravens marched 96 yards on a drive that was extended by a holding penalty on Packers safety Mark Roman.

Boller took it over from there, completing five of seven passes for 65 yards. The Ravens' longest drive of the season was capped by Randy Hymes, who made a leaping, one-handed grab on a 13-yard, jump-ball pass in the end zone.

"It's a step forward," left tackle Jonathan Ogden said of Boller. "He's just got to continue to build off this."

The first-half scoring wasn't over as the Ravens capitalized on Favre's nonchalant passes downfield. The Ravens converted an interception by Deion Sanders, who was playing in perhaps his final Monday night game, into a 23-yard field goal by Matt Stover.

To open the second half, Boller led Heap down the right sideline for a 27-yard touchdown, making it a memorable night for the two-time Pro Bowl tight end. With that catch, Heap became the Ravens' all-time leader in receiving yards.

The Ravens kept rolling with a 40-yard field goal by Stover at the end of the third quarter and a 3-yard run by Lewis.

Linebacker Adalius Thomas finished off the scoring by returning a Rodgers fumble 35 yards for a touchdown with 17 seconds left.

It marked the largest margin of victory in Ravens' history.

"It was nice to finally have a game where everything goes your way," Billick said. "They got a chance to redeem themselves nationally what they're about."
