Ravens one win from playoffs after beating Indy

Ravens one win from playoffs after beating Indy

The defense is pretty good, and the Ravens are riding it. If the Colts win, they'll both finish 4-12, but the Colts would earn third place by virtue of sweeping the Texans. Baltimore can make the postseason without assistance as long as they handle their business the next two weeks. When they needed a stop at the end, the defense came through. The Ravens then launched a 71-yard drive that ended with Flacco tossing a 6-yard touchdown pass to Michael Campanaro for a 10-0 lead.

T.Y. Breaks Out Of Slump: Saturday was the best game we've seen from T.Y. Hilton in quite some time.

Baltimore was without starting wide receiver Jeremy Maclin and entered Saturday's game against the visiting Indianapolis Colts with just four healthy bodies at the position.

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco finished 29-of-38 for 237 yards and two touchdowns in a game in which he wasn't always sharp.

Drive analysis: Great runs by Javorius Allen help propel Baltimore down the field. Here's the 14-play touchdown drive that consumed almost eight minutes of the final quarter. When training camp began in July, every Ravens player and coach would have taken that. But if the Ravens can't get pressure on the quarterback they might as well start harassing the tight ends off the line. That became an emotional and divisive issue.

Follow along as we bring you live updates and analysis from the game from kickoff through the final whistle. There are some of you who have stayed away from our games.

The Saints came through for those still alive, and the best team we have left is CAROLINA. But this year has been different.

Cass penned a letter to season ticket holders about the increase in empty seats at M&T Bank Stadium, attributing it to a number of factors, according to ESPN. Indianapolis has led nine times at halftime - and lost seven of those games - and three games have gone to overtime, where the team is 1-2. While Cass said there were "a number of reasons", but the protest was one of them.

The Packers (7-7) will miss the playoffs for the first time since 2008.

Also worth noting: The Eagles have been among the league's most vocal organizations when it comes to protesting social injustice and their attendance remains steady.

The oldest active player in the NFL, Vinatieri has remained effective since turning 40. "They didn't tell me good job either".

Second-half fades: Did we mention this was a bad matchup? But he'll need to go 16 of 16 in the final game of the season to get to 89.6 percent on the year. The past three games he has thrown for five TDs and only one INT. Smith is in his third season, Judon is in his second and Bowser and Williams are rookies. Therefore, they are unsafe and know it. Baltimore is a feared team clicking on all cylinders at the right time. But the veteran running back is on the verge of running into history, whenever he decides to hang up his cleats. TY Hilton tops out the Indianapolis receiving corps with 952 yards and four touchdowns. The touchdown reception was Campanaro's first since he caught a 19-yard score on October 12, 2014 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in his first National Football League game.
