Hours before his wife was induced into labor, Anthony Wright delivered an emotional and historic win for the Ravens.

The one-time third-string quarterback staged what was the biggest comeback in team history, rallying the Ravens to a pulsating, 44-41 overtime victory over the Seattle Seahawks.

After passing for a career-best 319 yards and four touchdowns in his second start for the Ravens, Wright drove home to pick up his wife, Nicole, who later gave birth to the couple's second daughter, Trinity.

"This is something that you dream of," said Wright, holding back tears as his voice cracked at his news conference. "This is something that you write in books. This is something you think would never happen to you. For us to come back and win this game was unimaginable."

Making his seventh NFL start at quarterback, Wright helped Baltimore score 10 points in the final 72 seconds of regulation to force overtime.

He then directed a 55-yard drive in the extra period, connecting with Marcus Robinson for 19 yards on a third-and-15 play to set up Matt Stover for the winner.

The frenzied finish seemed out of the question when Baltimore fell behind 41-24 with 14:16 remaining, but Wright and the Ravens never gave up.

"It was looking very, very dim. But we just let it all hang out," said Wright, 2-5 as an NFL starter. "It's unbelievable, for us to be down as much as were and to come back."

Three years later, the Ravens staged a bigger comeback at Tennessee, where they rallied from 19-point deficit in the second quarter.
