Ray Rice took a screen pass 30 yards to save the game for the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
It looked like the gig was up for the Ravens in San Diego on Sunday afternoon, but then something incredible happened. Down 13 to 10, the Ravens were at their own 37-yard-line facing 4th and 29 against the Chargers with less than two minutes left in the game when Joe Flacco dumped off a short screen pass to Ray Rice.
