Ravens fans got what they wanted from Sunday’s game against the Dolphins: a game that featured a game-tying touchdown run by quarterback Joe Flacco and a Ravens touchdown drive that came at the end of the third quarter and ended in a Ravens win.
The Ravens also had a touchdown run and a field goal on their own.
Joe Flacos TD run: Joe Flaco had a 1-yard touchdown run in the third period.
It was the first time the Ravens had scored on the same drive in nearly two years.
Flacco had a first down and a second-and-6 run with 1:08 left to go, and the Ravens’ offense had just two seconds to go.
That’s when he had to make a quick throw to wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, who had the ball with a minute left.
Flaco threw the ball to Maclin on his left side for a first-down and a touchdown.
It took two plays for the Ravens to score again, and they got it with just over two minutes to play in the fourth quarter.
Ravens kicker Matt Prater kicked a 27-yard field goal with 3:06 left to send the game into overtime.
“We got the lead and we knew we were going to get the first down, and that was the way it was,” Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo said.
“I thought our guys executed well, the defense did a good job and our offense did a great job of executing well.”
Joe Flavin’s first-quarter touchdown pass: Flacco was sacked for the first loss of his career and the second time this season.
The second interception came in the second quarter.
The pass from Flacco to tight end Zach Sudfeld had just over a minute remaining when Sudfeld got the ball.
Sudfeld threw a long pass to Flacco, who beat Dolphins linebacker Jonathan Bullard on a crossing route for a touchdown with 2:15 remaining.
The Dolphins scored two more points in the final 2:06.
Ravens running back C.J. Prosise scored on a 14-yard run in his second game of the season, and he finished with two carries for 17 yards.
He had a season-high two catches for 20 yards on special teams.
Joe McKnight had a career-high three catches for 36 yards and a 1.2 yards-per-carry average.
“This was a lot of fun, just the way we played,” McKnight said.
McKnight was the Ravens third straight 100-yard rusher, but the team had just three rushing touchdowns all season.
Ravens quarterback Joe Mixon also had three catches.
His two touchdowns came on plays that went into overtime and the final 3:18.
“It was a great effort from our guys,” Mixon said.
