Justin Tucker kicked a 38-yard field with 1:07 left in overtime to complete a stunning comeback for the Baltimore Ravens, who beat the staggering San Diego Chargers 16-13 on Sunday.
San Diego led 13-3 on Nick Novak's 30-yard field goal with 7:51 to go in regulation and seemed headed for its first win against a team with a winning record this season.
But the Ravens converted on fourth-and-29 from their 37 when Ray Rice caught a short pass from Joe Flacco and weaved through the defense to the San Diego 33 with 1:37 to play. After a review, the ball was moved back to the 34 and the refs measured. The new spot gave the Ravens a first down by the length of the ball.
Six plays later, Tucker kicked a 38-yard field goal to tie the game as regulation expired.
The Ravens (9-2) won their fourth straight and for the eighth time in nine games. The Chargers (4-7) were pushed closer to being eliminated from the playoff picture.

It was such an unbelievable play that Ray Rice reached deep and used a nursery rhyme to describe it.
''Check down, Hey Diddle Diddle, Ray Rice up the middle,'' the Baltimore running back said with a smile after the Ravens converted a fourth-and-29 play to help force overtime before stunning the San Diego Chargers 16-13 on Sunday.
It was almost an afterthought that...
Each week we take a look at those games where the public is really strongly backing one team over another and try to point out some flaws in that logic. This week, the biggest standout is the Ravens travelling on the road, coast to coast to face the Chargers. Baltimore has struggled away from home and that should continue this week; take the jump to find out why.
I couldn’t believe this play when I first saw it. First, the fact that the Ravens were able to convert on 4th and 29, which just shows how completely inept the San Diego Chargers are. And secondly, that Ravens QB Joe Flacco threw a check down pass to Ray Rice on 4th and 29. Flacco should be very thankful that Rice is an explosive playmaker, because had he not converted, Flacco...
The YouTube uploader reports: “Caught this near the beginning of the Chargers vs Ravens game.”
The key to that sentence is “beginning.”
How drunk is Drunk Chargers fan to slam his (we assume) his buddies face into his **** and balls? Remember, these games start at 1 p.m. in San Diego.
We’ll also assume that Drunk Chargers Fan killed his buddy via strangulation when Ravens...
Chargers receiver Danario Alexander is dealing with a thigh bruise suffered in the game against Baltimoe, but he did finish the contest.
SOURCE: Michael Gehlken, San Diego Union-TribuneFantasy Spin:Alexander should be ready to go in Week 13, but keep an eye on this to make sure it doesn't get any worse. Alexander has become a solid fantasy option since arriving in San Diego.
SAN DIEGO - The outcome came down to rhyme and reason, Ray Rice said. "Hey diddle diddle. Ray Rice up the middle," the Ravens running back said. Rice's feet delivered in the clutch, but it was kicker Justin Tucker who accomplished a bigger feat, boosting the Baltimore Ravens past the staggering San Diego Chargers. Tucker's 38-yard field goal with 1:07 left...
I've seen some incredible NFL finishes but I would have bet the farm that the Baltimore Ravens were going to lose yesterday to the San Diego Chargers facing this scenario.
San Diego was up by three with less than one minute to play and had Ravens a 4th and 29 at their own 37 yard line.
Then, Ray Rice pulled off a miracle catch and run to get the first down to keep the drive...
Is it possible? Could the best and worst plays in NFL history really have happened during the same weekend of football? If you watched the Baltimore/San Diego game yesterday evening, you’re sure to know what I’m talking about. It was 4th-and-29 with about 1:20 left to play in the fourth, with the Chargers needing just one final stop to earn the 13-10 victory over the Ravens...
The San Diego Chargers have ruled offensive lineman Jared
Gaither (groin) and wide receiver Eddie Royal (hamstring) out for today’s
contest against the Baltimore Ravens, while tight end Dante Rosario (hamstring)
is doubtful to play.
The Charges placed Gaither on injured reserve on Friday, and
their line has struggled mightily in his absence.
Beyond Rosario, offensive lineman...
The Chargers (4-7) will not qualify for postseason play. Norv Turner will be fired some time between now and the divisional round of the playoffs. These things we know. The question is: what now? Here is a look at three things the Chargers need to accomplish over the next five weeks.
