Rivers has yards, Ravens get win

Related News/Archive

BALTIMORE — The Ravens finally found a way to win a close game. For San Diego, the wait continues.

Justin Tucker kicked a 39-yard field goal on the final play, and Baltimore overcame another record day by Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers.

Joe Flacco threw for 319 yards and ran for a score to help Baltimore snap a three-game skid and hand the Chargers their fourth straight defeat. Tucker's fifth field goal came three plays after a third-down pass interference call against Steve Williams moved the ball 21 yards to the San Diego 22.

Rivers went 28 for 37 for 301 yards, his franchise-record fifth consecutive 300-yard game. Two of his TD passes went to Malcom Floyd, including a 70-yarder. But for the third time this season, San Diego lost on the final play.

"It's been tough losing this way," Rivers said. "Whatever the answer to the problem is, we haven't found the answer."

    The goal posts still seem to be moving for Roberto Aguayo.

    The Bucs woebegone place-kicker, who is in a battle with veteran Nick Folk, went 1-for-4 in field goal tries from 35-40 yards Tuesday on a set of narrow uprights, the first day of full squad Organized Team Activities.
