2000 Ravens Have Slight Lead Over 1998 Broncos

2000 Ravens vs. 1998 Broncos (NFL.com)

The 2000 Baltimore Ravens, winners of Super Bowl 35, lead the 1998 Denver Broncos by the slimmest of margins in the "Elite Eight' voting for the greatest team of the Super Bowl-era in NFL Bracketology. At NFL.com, they are doing their own version of 'March Madness' and with the 64-team bracket down to its final eight, the defensive-minded Ravens have shocked the football world by making it this far as the 9th seed in the 'Don Shula' bracket.

The voting for this round ends today, so the final results have not been announced as of this writing. However, it looks like the Ravens may squeak out a narrow upset victory, as the last tally had Baltimore leading Denver, 51% to 49%. There is still a few hours left to get your vote for the Ravens in, so head on over to vote.

Surprisingly, former defensive standout Warren Sapp, now an analyst for the NFL Network, sees Broncos QB John Elway leading Denver to the victory over the QB-challenged Ravens, with his first-hand knowledge of having played with then-QB Trent Dilfer. A Ravens victory and trip to the 'Final Four' where they would face either the 1984 or 1989 San Francisco 49ers awaits the Ravens should the final margin hold up.

GO RAVENS!!!
