Ravens 16, Chargers 13, overtime

Ravens convert on fourth and 29, win

SAN DIEGO — The Chargers seemingly had their first win against a team with a winning record secured, leading by three and defending a fourth-and-29 play from the Ravens 37.

But Baltimore converted on a catch-and-run by running back Ray Rice, forced overtime, then won on Justin Tucker's 38-yard field goal with 1:07 left. The Ravens have won four straight and eight of nine. On the fourth-down play, Joe Flacco threw a short pass to Rice, who weaved through the defense, found a hole in the middle of the field and got to the San Diego 33 with 1:37 left After a review, the ball was moved to the 34, still a first down and leading to a tying field goal.

"Check down, Hey Diddle Diddle, Ray Rice up the middle," Rice said of the play. "It was just total will."

"It upsets the stomach when things like that happen, but they happen," said Chargers defensive end Corey Liuget. "You have to give a guy credit when he makes an awesome play like that.''
