The Ravens come in to Sunday's meeting with many injuries and few wins. But they will still put up a fight, even if they are completely overmatched. It won't be the first time the Ravens fought hard against Seattle. This is the story of the epic comeback the 2003 Ravens made against the Seattle Seahawks.

The Ravens were down 41-24 against the Seattle Seahawks with less than seven minutes in the fourth quarter. The Seahawks were going to punt the ball from their own 34, when Ed Reed kicked off the comeback by blocking the punt and then taking it back for a touchdown. Ray Lewis would force and recover a fumble on the next Seahawks possession, which would turn into an Anthony Wright to Marcus Robinson touchdown.

The Seahawks would recover Wade Richey's onside kick, but the defense stopped the Seahawks on the Ravens 33 with 44 seconds left to play. Anthony Wright  would lead the Ravens to the Seahawks 21 and Matt Stover kicked a field goal to make the game 41-41 for both sides, which sent the game into overtime.

The Ravens would force the Seahawks to punt on their opening possession of overtime and Anthony Wright would lead the Ravens down the field and Matt Stover would kick another field goal to win the game for the Ravens.

The Ravens might not be fighting for the divisional crown like they were in 2003, but hopefully they can put up the same fight and maybe even put on a show.
