Riding a two-game losing skid and with a banged-up roster, Baltimore is heading into a huge game against the New York Giants Sunday at MetLife Stadium.

While they may be hurting mentally and physically, the Ravens got an emotional boost at the end of Friday's practice from another fighter.

Little 5-year-old Jack Kirkbride visited Ravens practice, fresh from a clinical appointment. He is battling a rare form of leukemia at John's Hopkins Hospital.

Jack has a sidekick brother, Ryan, who is 17 months younger, but his favorite football player is quarterback Joe Flacco.

Flacco handed Jack the ball and he weaved his way behind tight end Dennis Pitta and through some falling tacklers all the way into the end zone, much to the delight of the entire team.

After scoring, Jack broke the team huddle with a "Go Joe!" call.

"That puts things in perspective quite nicely," smiling Head Coach John Harbaugh said.

Keep fighting Jack, we're all behind you buddy!
