Game 8: End zone again out of bounds

Game 8: End zone again out of bounds

This is what October has come to for the Ravens:

On the 1-yard line, quarterback Tony Banks produced a fumble when he should have had a touchdown.On the 9-yard line, Tennessee Titans quarterback Steve McNair produced a touchdown when he should have been sacked.

There were no reprieves for the Ravens at PSINet Stadium yesterday in an excruciating, 14-6 loss to the Titans before a record crowd of 69,200.

Not in the red zone. Not in the replay challenge system. Not in sheer dumb luck.

Ravens coach Brian Billick, shut out of the end zone since Sept. 24, finally went to his bench for veteran quarterback Trent Dilfer, and came away with a replay headache.
