Baltimore Ravens vs. San Diego Chargers: Live Score, Highlights and Analysis
The Ravens have defeated the San Diego Chargers 16-13.
It was all Chargers to start the game, as they took a 10-0 lead to half-time.
The Ravens caught fire in the fourth quarter, though, as Joe Flacco finished with 355 yards and a touchdown.
Ray Rice's 30 yard reception on fourth-and-29 saved the game for the Ravens and could go down as one of the best plays in Ravens' history.
The Chargers fall to 4-7 while the Ravens advance to 9-2.
Player of the Game: Can it be anyone other than Ray Rice? His 4th-and-29 catch and run saved the game for the Ravens, and his running really got going as the game wore on.
An honorable mention goes to Art Jones, who racked up two sacks and had a few big stops.

Here is the play of the game. No play this week was more important for any team.
Final: Tucker's field goal is good, and the Ravens win the game. A valiant effort by both teams, especially defensively, but the Ravens got hot at just the right time.
This is the Chargers' sixth loss in their past seven games to make them 4-7, while the Ravens advance to 9-2.
1:12 in OT: Interesting choice by the Ravens to let the clock wear down in case of a Tucker miss. I've never seen a coach do this before, but it makes sense. Here's Justin Tucker to decide the game.
2:04 in OT: The play is under review but there is no doubt this is a catch by Torrey Smith. He played that like a seasoned veteran, and we are seeing what the Flacco-Smith connection is capable of when they are on the same page.
2:32 in OT: The Ravens have been excellent on this drive. Dennis Pitta made a great third down grab, while Tandon Doss made a spectacular catch to get the ball into Chargers' territory. Their receivers have excelled in OT.
4:56 in OT: What a punt from Mike Scifres! A 63 yard punt with no gain on the return.
5:08 in OT: Brendan Ayanbadejo has played well in relief of Dannell Ellerbe, and his play on that third down pass was perhaps his biggest of the game so far. Great coverage by Ayanbadejo as the Chargers are forced to punt.
6:27 in OT: Joe Flacco opts to make a conservative throw to Dennis Pitta rather than force something deep, forcing the Ravens to punt. Poor punt from Sam Koch right into the end zone. Chargers will get the ball at their own 20.
8:35 in OT: At the very least, the Ravens managed to get out of the shadow of their own end zone. Some nice plays from Ray Rice and Joe Flacco for this offense on this drive.
10:44 in OT: Perfect coverage by Cary Williams to force the incompletion. He got his hand just where it needed to be to rip the ball out. The Chargers are forced to punt, and the Ravens will have the ball at their own 10.
11:31 in Fourth Quarter: The Chargers are driving here with the Ravens playing conservative coverage. Third down here.
14:56 in OT: The Chargers are starting with the ball at their own 16 yard line. Great coverage on the kick.
:03 in Fourth Quarter: And this game will come down to a Justin Tucker field goal. If he can hit the 37 yard attempt, this game will go into overtime with the Ravens having the momentum.
1:37 in Fourth Quarter: After much discussion, the Ravens got the first down. Great play by Ray Rice, controversial call by the officials.
1:48 in Fourth Quarter: This call will decide the game. Too close to call from what they're showing on TV, but regardless, a superior effort from Ray Rice.
Ray Rice got it!!!!!! WOW!!!— Baltimore Ravens (@Ravens) November 26, 2012
2:00 in Fourth Quarter: No surprise that the offensive line is killing the Ravens at the most important part of the game. Michael Oher gave up an easy strip-sack to Antwan Barnes, and Marshal Yanda's holding penalty set the offense way back.
3:09 in Fourth Quarter: With one timeout left and plenty of time on the clock, the Ravens aren't forced to pass on every down. Running the ball is still very much an option, and with good field position and momentum, the Ravens look to be in great shape right now.
3:25 in Fourth Quarter: The Ravens made the stop they needed. Great coverage on three straight downs and sure tackling ensured that the Chargers weren't getting the first down there.
The Ravens didn't go after the Chargers with a fierce blitz there, but rather they focused on locking down their coverage. It worked.
4:19 in Fourth Quarter: Where did this drive come from? The Ravens' passing offense has been awful all day, yet they completely shredded the Chargers on that drive. Torrey Smith was the star there, with several big catches. This might be a game after all.
5:48 in Fourth Quarter: Mental mistakes are killing the Ravens here. Anquan Boldin was whistled for the Ravens' second personal foul this quarter. They need to play with discipline to come back.
7:51 in Fourth Quarter: That was a probable game-sealing field goal for the Chargers there. They now lead by two scores against a Ravens' offense that hasn't scored a touchdown in two weeks.
