When almost everyone else thought the team was coming apart, Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome thought his team was coming together. It's hard to see a turnaround when a team fires its offensive coordinator during a losing streak late in the season, but Newsome didn't blink after the 34-17 loss to Denver on Dec. 16th, the team's third straight. "I think there were two turning points in the season," Newsome said. "In the Denver game, we were just starting to get healthy again for the first time. I know the score didn't show it, but that one play at the end of the half was a 14-point swing and we didn't recover.
