After battling back from 10 points down with less than six minutes to play, the Bills forced overtime with the heavily-favored Ravens. They appeared poised to complete their stunning upset until Shawn Nelson, Buffalo's second-year tight end, coughed up a fumble at his own 45. The Bills fervently argued that Nelson's forward progressed was stopped -- his feet were lifted completely off the ground -- but it was to no avail. The referees never reviewed Ray Lewis' strip, Billy Cundiff kicked a 38-yard field goal and Baltimore escaped with a narrow 37-34 win.
