The Weekend’s First Winner: Baltimore!

With only 53 seconds remaining in regulation, the Raven’s kicker Matt Stover made possibly the most important field goal of his life. The Tennessee Titans had been the Super Bowl favorites since the middle of the regular season, and yet they couldn’t get it done in the clutch, as they lost to the Ravens 13-10.

During the regular season, much was made of rookie quarterback Matt Ryan; but, it was another rookie quarterback that is making waves in the playoffs. The Ravens quarterback, Joe Flacco, was calm cool and collected as he threw for 161 yards and a touchdown to become the first rookie quarterback to win two games in the playoffs. Baltimore’s defense wasn’t quite as dominating today as they have been in the past; but, they definitely got the job done.

This was a hard-fought game between two tough teams; but, at the end of the day it was Baltimore that won the low-scoring battle. Baltimore will next face the winner of the San Diego Chargers-Pittsburgh Steelers game, which will be played tomorrow.
