The Ravens started the season 3-8, and now have a realistic chance to finish 4-1. I don't know if the teams' recent success has anything to do with owner Steve Bisciotti bringing Billick back, but I'm guessing it didn't hurt.
"We have an ongoing and extensive process to find ways to win," Bisciotti said in a statement released by the team. "This included a thorough evaluation of Brian Billick. Collectively, we concluded that continuing with Brian as head coach gives us the best opportunity to win."
Now Baltimore just needs to decide if Kyle Boller is their quarterback of the future. (free registration/bugmenot required)

Possibly the closest Super Bowl matchup in history also poses the question: how much does it mean when certain aspects of an NFL team improve dramatically in the second half of the season?
