Ravens win game but lose Flacco, RB

BALTIMORE — It has been this kind of season for the Ravens: Even when they win, they lose.

A dramatic victory over the Rams was marred by season-ending injuries to quarterback Joe Flacco and running back Justin Forsett.

Flacco tore ligaments in his left knee in the closing seconds but stayed until the finish. "I wanted to win a game," said Flacco, who never has missed a game over his eight-year career. "I think it's the ACL and MCL."

Forsett broke both bones in his right forearm in the first quarter. He is Baltimore's leading rusher.

Justin Tucker hit a 47-yard field goal as time expired to end a mistake-filled game in which the Ravens rallied from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter.

One final error settled matters: Rams quarterback Case Keenum fumbled when hit by linebacker Courtney Upshaw, and defensive end Lawrence Guy recovered the ball at the St. Louis 41-yard line with 54 seconds to go. Keenum was evaluated for a concussion.
