Ray Rice's Amazing Fourth Down Conversion Sent The Ravens to an Overtime Win Over the Chargers


Ray Rice. Legend.

Joe Flacco and Norv Turner, summed up in one play, with a major helping of Ray Rice. It’s fourth and 29, Baltimore must go inside the two minute warning, and Joe Flacco checks it down to Rice, who then manages to pick up over 25 yards on sheer determination and effort.

The spot was reviewed, and moved back, though I thought it was still generous. Even after the re-measurement, the first down was awarded. Rice’s knees hit short of the 35, and he’s neither 7 foot tall nor laying flat on the ground. Still, great play that kept these Ravens in the game, as they sent it to overtime with a tying field goal, then won it in overtime.

Baltimore, somehow, is 9-2 and still in second place in the AFC.
