Ravens escape, in control of fate
BALTIMORE — The Ravens survived a desperate comeback bid by the Eagles, escaping after stopping a two-point conversion try with four seconds left in the game. If Baltimore wins its next two games, it will win the AFC North title.
The Ravens had a 27-17 lead and a first down at the Eagles' 11-yard line when Joe Flacco threw an interception. "That's the only reason it was really a game," he said.
Eagles rookie QB Carson Wentz directed a drive that produced a field goal with 2:22 left. The Eagles got the ball back at their 41 with 1:39 to go and got within one on Wentz's 4-yard run. Coach Doug Pederson went for the win, but Wentz's throw to tight end Jordan Matthews was tipped.
