This game will be memorable in many ways.
-Flacco finally breaks out of his road woes
-Defense looks like it is on the come back
-Tucker is clutch but most of all....

I'm a generally happy person. I got shingles a few weeks ago, and the doctor said it was because of stress. I couldn't figure out what she was talking about until I watched this game

I know everyone watched the first 3 quarters thinking the Ravens were done and they just thoroughly suck on the road. But I think they're a pretty awesome team, if not for any reason other than everything that happened from thr 4th quarter on. Any other team would've either been blown out or accepted their fate and quit. Not the Ravens though.

Big S/O to Ray Rice, Flacco, Torrey and pretty much the whole defense.

At first glance, a win is a win, I'm proud of our guys for coming back the way they did, and I'm glad we signed Justin Tucker!!

A win. And every heart clinic in Baltimore has a line around the block.

O slow but - now we know - it's not to do with crowd noise. And Joe did fine hitting targets when they were open.

I believe the area for upside in the O is the receiving corp - they just don't get open often enough. And I believe Joe is the lightning rod for criticism *outside* the organization but not inside.

Sarah - that was a check down. Give Ray a little more credit. That was not a screen. That was a check down with all the blockers down field - which should mean he gets more credit for the run...credit Q for coming back to make a solid block.

My takeaway is that Bernard Pierce needs to stop running sideline to sideline and just go north south with his big body. He went North South for once and got 12 yards. Then the next few runs were all short yardage towards the sideline. Hopefully the coaches noticed that too and stop running him the way they do. Another point is that the Chargers clearly knew where he was going.

Nevertheless, seemed like a great team effort. Blocking assignments did not seem to be on point, but NO TURNOVERS (except for the stupid run off the tackle on the 4th and inches)...6 punts but they did show some positive signs of moving the ball. At least better than in KC and Houston.

Probably could do MORE...MORE...MORE passes underneath and less over the top. At least to get in a solid offensive rhythm...Good Defensive Effort!

Justin Tucker only just now developing a reputation for being clutch? He hasn't missed a single 4th quarter kick in his college and NFL careers COMBINED. He literally has never missed a 4th quarter kick. If that's not clutch, what is?

When the Ravens back was against the wall the offense came thru. It just shows that if Cameron opens it up we can play with the best, but he holds the offense back most of the time.

Flacco throws for 355 yds and a TD after doing next to nothing the first half. Raise your hand if you saw that coming.

Folks, let's not forget the OL that gave Flacco the time, the WRs who all ran long routes dragging the defenders along, Ray Rice for his outstanding vision on the cutback and Q for levelling Nbr 32 just as he was about to tackle RR possibly short of the line!

No national pundits are talking about the Ravens, but is there another team that has the heart?

Could someone pls explain the final plays to me, specifically kneeling at 2nd and 3rd down then hoping for the best with the one kick attempt ? Perhaps it's smart but I just cannot understand it.
