The 2003 Baltimore Ravens season was the team's eighth season in the NFL. They improved upon their previous output of 7–9, instead winning 10 games and making a playoff appearance.[1] One notable moment from the season came in week 2, when Jamal Lewis rushed 295 yards against the Cleveland Browns, setting the NFL record for most rushing yards in a single game.[2] In week 12 against the Seattle Seahawks, Baltimore fought a 41–24 deficit to win 44–41. The game was named to NFL Top 10 as #9 on Top Ten Comebacks.[3]

In the playoffs, the Ravens couldn't flick the switch this time as they narrowly lost to the Tennessee Titans, 20–17.
