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.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Blake Snell stepped up when he had to Monday and delivered an impressive career-high seven-plus innings for the Rays. That it wasn't enough in what ended up a 5-0 loss to the Orioles that was their season-high fifth straight is symptomatic of the mess they are in right now.

    LHP Blake Snell stepped up when the Rays needed him to — and perhaps when he had to to keep his job — working a season-high seven plus innings. And it wasn't only that he got deep into the game, but how he did so, using his fastball to pound the strike zone.
