post game summary her
In an epic match up with the playoffs on the line the Ravens prevail in overtime 27-24 against the Raiders. The Ravens have now officially clinched the AFC North with a 11-5 record and the 4th seed in the playoffs.
The Raiders jumped off to an early lead on a Heyward-Bey TD catch. The Ravens where only able to respond with a FG. The Raiders came right back with a Miller TD catch (14-3). The rout was nearly on as on the perusing drive Ray Rice fumbled and Huff returned what looked to be a early game ending TD, but luck struck as replay showed his knee was down. Joe Flacco then hit Derrick Mason on a screen that he took 59 yard for a TD. After regaining position Michael Clayton took a slant 43 yards for a TD to take the lead. The Ravens D forced a 3 and out deep in Raiders territory setting up great field position for the Offense which responded with a 25 yard TD pass to Joe Walsh taking a 24 - 14 lead into the half.
The Ravens where held scoreless the next two quarters as the Raiders dominated T.O.P. while coming back to score 10 points tying the game on a Janikowski FG with 1 second left.
The Raiders won the toss in OT and look poised to keep their momentum and end the game, but on a third and long Jeff Garcia was picked off by Samari Rolle in Oakland territory. The Ravens almost suffered another devastating blow as Rice fumbled the ball only to be saved again on replay. Finally Steven Hauschka came in and ended the game on a 37 yard FG, 27-24.
Player of the Game was Joe Flacco throwing for 255 with 3 TD's.
Unbelievable game, my team had came out strong defensively in the second half, and then we got a major boost after you missed the FG late, and then on the two-minute drill, we were poised to score a TD on 3rd and 1 but the Raven D came up big as they did all game, forcing to settle for a game tying FG. Should have never thrown that last pass. Great Game.
COME ON MIAMI BIG WIN, END PITTSBURGH'S SEASON! OAKLAND SUPPORTS YOU!!!!
