The Ravens have never won a playoff game in Pittsburgh — a fact frequently brought up this week. They have, however, gone on the road in the playoffs and blown teams out. This week's Five for Friday looks back at the five biggest road playoff wins in Ravens history.
 
Ravens 20, Miami Dolphins 3 – AFC Wild Card; Jan. 13, 2002            
 
The first of two throttlings of Miami came nearly 13 years ago, when the Dolphins kicked an early field goal after the Ravens fumbled the opening kickoff and didn't score again. The defending champion Ravens allowed 151 total yards and ran for 226 yards while dispatching the AFC East champions.
 
Ravens 27, Miami Dolphins 9 – AFC Wild Card; Jan 4, 2009
 
Safety Ed Reed intercepted two passes, including one returned for a touchdown, as part of four picks of Miami quarterback Chad Pennington that day. Pennington was also sacked three times, and the Ravens ran for over 150 yards and two touchdowns in the win in South Florida
 
Ravens 33, New England 14 – AFC Wild Card; Jan. 10, 2010
 
The Ravens took over on the first play from scrimmage, when running back Ray Rice ran for an 83-yard touchdown. Joe Flacco and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady each had their worst playoff game, but 234 rushing yards and four touchdowns on the ground helped the Ravens to victory.
 
Ravens 30, Kansas City Chiefs 7 – AFC Wild Card; Jan. 9, 2011
 
The Ravens followed a familiar formula against the AFC West champions that year, forcing five turnovers and sacking quarterback Matt Cassel three times while allowing 161 total yards in weather conditions similar to what's expected tomorrow in Pittsburgh. Joe Flacco threw two touchdowns in the win.
 
Ravens 28, New England Patriots 13 – AFC Championship; Jan. 20, 2013
 
For the second straight playoff game, Joe Flacco outdueled Tom Brady. Flacco threw for 240 yards and three touchdowns as part of the hottest stretch of his career, helping the Ravens to 21 unanswered points in the second half and Dannell Ellerbe and Cary Williams both picked off Tom Brady.
