Ravens 9, Chiefs 6

Ravens rely on D, three field goals

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Ravens shut down running back Jamaal Charles and the rest of the Chiefs offense in the second half and made a big fourth-quarter stand, helped by an offensive pass interference penalty on former Largo High standout Dexter McCluster that negated a go-ahead touchdown pass to Dwayne Bowe.

After McCluster's penalty, the Chiefs kicked a field goal and the Ravens converted two third downs to run out the clock.

"This game is as hard as it gets," Baltimore linebacker Ray Lewis said. "We knew the kind of game we were going to get out of these guys. We knew it would be a tough sled. For us to come in and just keep fighting, keep fighting, keep fighting. … A big win."

The Ravens had the NFL's second-ranked offense through the first four weeks of the season, but it faltered against Kansas City. Ray Rice ran for 101 yards, but Joe Flacco had just 187 yards passing and was picked off once.

Baltimore had to settle for three field goals by Justin Tucker.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Chaim Bloom said the Rays weren't necessarily in the market for a shortstop. The team has a number of those. But when the Marlins recently began shopping Adeiny Hechavarria, well, that was too much to pass up.
