Baltimore 31, New England 30: A see-saw affair between everyone's favorite AFC powerhouses also had some feel-good moments. Torrey Smith had two touchdowns, the second of which brought Ravens back within two with four minutes left in the game. The Ravens held the Patriots on their final possession, forcing a punt before the two minute warning and with the help of some nice catches and defensive penalties won the game in the final seconds with a 27-yard field goal. At least I think they won it with a field goal. NBC just showed the same impossible angle over and over.
Woops!: After Smith put the Ravens on the board with his diving catch, Dennis Pitta gave the Ravens the lead, momentarily, with the old jump over terrible tackling move. Pitta victimized safety Steve Gregory on this one but, of course, the Patriots marched right down the field and took the lead back before the half.
