Top Moments From Win Over Vikings

Posted Dec 9, 2013

Relive the crazy moments from Sunday's 29-26 win over Minnesota.

The finish to Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings was unlike anything Baltimore fans had ever seen.

Actually, it was a historic finish by NFL standards.

There were five touchdowns and five lead changes in the final two minutes, five seconds, and Marlon Brown’s 9-yard touchdown catch with four seconds left finally gave the Ravens a 29-26 lead they would hold for the victory.  It was the first time in NFL history (since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger) that five touchdowns had ever been scored in the final 2:05 of a game.

Players and coaches described the back-and-forth finish as one of the craziest they had ever seen.

Let’s take a look at how the crazy final two minutes all unfolded:

Dennis Pitta’s touchdown catch, 2:05 remaining
Ravens lead 15-12

Welcome back, Dennis Pitta.

This touchdown started the onslaught of scoring. After 19 combined points for nearly the first 58 minutes, quarterback Joe Flacco found Pitta on fourth down to give the Ravens a 15-12 lead.

The score looked like it would give the Ravens a victory, as long as the defense could get a stop against the Minnesota offense that had struggled for much of the game. 

Toby Gerhart breaks a 41-yard touchdown run, 1:27 remaining
Vikings lead 19-15

The Vikings didn’t take long to re-take the lead.

With Adrian Peterson sidelined because of an ankle injury, backup Toby Gerhart made the most of his chance and came up with a bulldozing 41-yard touchdown through the middle of the Ravens defense. He cut through a big hole and then shrugged off tackle attempts by safeties Matt Elam and James Ihedigbo.

The touchdown silenced M&T Bank Stadium … temporarily.

Jacoby Jones 77-yard kick return, 1:16 remaining
Ravens lead 22-19

The big-play maestro was at it again.

He took the short kick straight up the sidelines, broke a tackle attempt from the kicker and then walked the tightrope down the sidelines for a touchdown.

The score sent Baltimore into a snowball-throwing frenzy. 

Game over! Ravens win!

Right?

Cordarrelle Patteron’s 79-yard screen pass touchdown, 45 seconds remaining
Vikings lead 26-22

The Vikings kept fighting back and once again took the lead.

The explosive rookie wide receiver caught the screen pass on third down and beat everyone on the Ravens defense. Elam had a chance to catch Patterson on the second level, but the safety got spun around and ended up slipping on the snowy field.

The late touchdown gave the Ravens one more chance with the ball.

Marlon Brown’s 9-yard touchdown catch, 4 seconds remaining
Ravens lead 29-26

The Ravens proved that it’s never over until it’s over.

With just 45 seconds time left, Flacco drove the offense 80 yards down the field to give them a shot at the end zone. He hit Brown over the middle with a perfectly placed pass, and the rookie receiver managed to get both feet down in the back of the end zone.

The score gave the Ravens a lead they would hold for their third-straight victory.

Those who stuck through the snow at M&T Bank Stadium went nuts. The Ravens sideline was exuberant. The players had a hard time putting the thrilling finish into words, and Flacco best summed it up when he opened his post-game press conference.

“Oh my gosh,” he said. “I don’t know if there has ever been a crazier minute-and-forty-some seconds ever.”
