From Down and Distance:

The AFC Divisional Round playoff game between the Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens changed quickly in the final minute. Just when NFL fans thought Ray Lewis' career was coming to an end on a loss, Baltimore got the ball back with 1:09 left in the fourth quarter down by seven to the Denver Broncos.

It was up to Joe Flacco and company to drive the ball downfield to tie the game.

Flacco took a snap and ran up the middle on the first play. On the very next play, Denver lined up with a deep secondary and rushed three players. Flacco stepped up patiently in the pocket and found Jacoby Jones for a 70-yard bomb to tie the game at 35.

It was a huge play to set up OT, and it helped Jones redeem himself for a boneheaded drop earlier in the quarter.
