Throwback Thursday: Baltimore Ravens shut out the Dallas Cowboys 27-0 in 2000

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

As Super Bowl 50 ended this past weekend with the Denver Broncos winning it all and their defense being proclaimed as the best of all-time by some, it is only appropriate to show a Baltimore Ravens throwback from their record setting defense during the 2000 season as they shut out the Cowboys 27-0.

The 2000 Ravens had four shutouts that year which is an NFL record during the 16 game regular season format. The 2015 Broncos had zero shutouts on the season. The Broncos allowed 340 points in 19 games during the 2015 season. The 2000 Ravens allowed 188 points in 20 games. There is no debate between the two units.

The 2000 Ravens held their opponents to three points or less eight times that year including the playoffs. EIGHT TIMES.  Just watch this game against the Cowboys and see how things felt so effortless for the Ravens defense. I don't think it would be a bad idea for the current Ravens defense to watch this game either.
