Yeah. Sorry Ray, that run was divine interventon, but this game wasn't anywhere near as charged as last year's Steelers game.

Rice's run was inspired, but Torrey's TD catch was for the game against Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh. Could have only been better if it were the playoffs.

Gotta give props to the 83 Yard run against NE in the playoffs......Never have I seen a better start to ANY game...It was like a hay-maker right at the opening bell and NE never recovered....

Because of where Torrey's catch took place, it may take the edge on Ray Rice's run yesterday. It's so close that I'm still deliberating.

It is too early, so I don't know where I would rank this play. The only thing I regret, it is too damn bad I could not see it live!

How many memorable plays can teams like Jacksonville, KC, SD, etc. boast over the last 4 years?

I rank all the plays listed in the article as "truly memorable"!

Its obviously Smith's TD because of who it was against, the meaning it had on the season standings, and the game situation. The play itself appears fairly routine in the sense that it was just a 26 yard TD pass but the MEANING of it was far more than the others, even though the Rice play yesterday was probably the most "Spectacular" of them all. so i guess the question needs to define whether we're talking spectactular or impactful.

I'm always a glass half full person but I have to say that the Evans drop is the most memorable play for me. Now, if we go to the SB in JH's era that will be erased and the 4th and 29 will be #1

I'm gona have to say Ray Rice's run against NE in the playoffs. Yeah Smith's catch against the steelers was big and gave us the edge over them in the division but Ray's run was in the playoffs, where we were uderdogs and have never beaten the Pats before. The pitt game is really a toss-up between the two teams. That NE win changed our expectations as a team. We can beat any team, anywhere, from here on out. I remember where I was in all of these plays though.

Saw this game live, and that play was truly amazing. The whole year, I have been calling for the check down that I am so used to seeing from flacco and rice. And finally I was ifted with the check down. When you saw rice running it was happening so fast. It was pretty open when he got the ball, and there was no containment on the left side. All the charger fans saw it coming and that it was going to be a first down. When you saw rice plunge forward and spotting it with the marks, there was no question it was a first down. I was surprised at river's reaction. What was really weird was the ref ne went under the hood to examine it, all of it was from upstairs. And right before it came back from commercial break, he went into the hood for literary 10 seconds and then left to call it to be short. That's when Harbaugh requested it to be measured and when it was, bang, all of charger nation knew the end was near.

Im sorry, I love Ray Rice and all but I wouldnt even rank that play in the top 5. It was exciting and a fantastic play but not as important as Torreys catch or Ray's sack or Ed setting a new NFL record by breaking his OWN record. Or even as good as his 83 yard run that took the heart of the patriots on the first play. How about Josh Wilsons interception that won that game for us.

bunch of amazing candidates, kinda surprised Flacco's 43 yard reception wasnt brought up though.

some honorable mentions (if i may):
McGahee's Stiff Arm on on Hiram Eugene
Haruki's almost-TD run out of the fake punt
JJ's crack back block on Hines Ward

Rays effort to get away from 3 dudes breathing down his neck and Q's block made it happened.For this season it was huge,we have the Squeelers right where we want them.We have a chance to bury them with out having to worry about them at the end of the season catching us for the division title for the second str8 year.Not the best of all time,but important in 2012.

The 'Most Memorable'. Well since it happened yesterday and I saw it replayed 10 times during the game and another 10 on the computer and on TV Highlights, uhh, yeah I think it's the most memorable...the Rice run of 30 yards on 4th and 29. I think it's going to be very hard to forget for a long while, too. I also liked Ray's stop and remember that happening, too. I like Torrey's catch in Pitt. a lot, too, and remember that one (Sun. Night Football) like it was yesterday, as well. And, as Sami said, I very much remember Josh Wilson's INT and TD against Hou. @ Houston in the reg. season (2 years ago??). That one should be up there because it ended the game, I believe in Overtime, lights out!!!! Good one!

Gotta go with Torrey considering it was a 92 yard drive to win the game against a team that more often than not, has our number. And it was in Pitt no less. Makes it even sweeter. If Lee Evans would have caught that ball I think we all would vote for that. lol

Hey Sami, My List would be "THIS" Long! Alphabetically or Matter of Importance! Rice did that play against the squeelers a few years back burning james farrior over the middle to set the Ravens up for a score!

I gotta say Torrey Smith's catch in Pitt. Yesterday, I was ecstatic so I thought that play was the biggest, but now that I've calmed down, i gotta say Torrey's TD catch.

@ Purpledowg 96 & Sami, I've got soooo many fond memories of the old Baltimore Colts,I'm only 65 yrs old but between 1955 - 1972 so many Hall of Famers played for them. Click on www.coltsheritage.com/history.php for their history

Torrey Smith's catch was just a moment that made you feel so good until you hurt yourself.

Random note: Ed Reed's 108-yd INT was actually in 2008, not 2010.

I kept a copy of the Ravens at Steelers 2011 game on my DVR for over a year, just so I could watch that drive and that play over again to cheer me up. So yeah, my vote still goes with Torrey's TD.

All the plays are great moments in Ravens history, but where has 4th and 29, short pass, don't convert game over ever happened?

Ray Rice 4th and 29 is the most effort put into one play, undrawn up, ever.

That play against the Bolts was nice but the TD run against the Pats is #1 for me...hadn't finished the first nacho before RR scored!

It was the craziest, but probably not the most memorable. I'm going with the TD run vs. the Pats. The first thing out of my mouth was, "let's see if we can establish the run game here ...". I'd say the answer was "YES"!

Until we get a Superbowl win I think Torrey Smith's last minute touchdown will be the best. No better feeling then watching the Steeler stadium fall silent, I must have watched that play a dozen times. Not to take away from Rice's run cuz it was amazing.

Have to agree with this. For me it was either Ray Rice's play or ed reed's. Amazing individual effort by reed to break through all those tackles, but the amazing effort by rice, and joe's confidence in him make this play #1 for me. I was thinking they would go hail mary, but Hey Diddle Diddle ? Unbelievable

The most memorable positive play! The nightmare plays that everyone will remember will be the Evans drop and the Cundiff miss to end the Ravens' Super Bowl entry game. But that was in the past, we have another postseason to look forward to!

(1)for me it was Torrey Smith's catch in Pburgh. It allowed us to sweep the division....oh yeah and win the game. Felt like it validated what we could do against them. Plus I slept well that night. Couldn't have taken another gut wrenching loss at that time. (2) Anquan (as my son calls him "he so strong")Boldin's block to set RR free. If not for that hit, the run would probably been short.

Love RR#27 to death but the Torrey Smith catch validated all we've been saying and in my eyes made this a legitimate rivalry. We swept them and took hold of the division. All those plays were amazing though...like 1a. 1b. 1c. and so on in my eyes.
