Saturday night, the Batlimore Ravens beat the Denver Broncos in the second over time, 38-35 with a 47-yard field goal kick.
The Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens went into overtime in their AFC divisional playoff tied at 35 after Joe Flacco threw a 70-yard touchdown pass to Jacoby Jones over Tony Carter and Rahim Moore with 31 seconds left in regulation Saturday.
Ravens' kicker Justin Tucker kicked a 47-yard field goal in the game's 2nd OT with 13:59 left.
For the briefest of moments it appeared as though Tucker's kick might have been drifting away to the right, but finally it sailed right inside the upright. A scarcely credible game of football at Mile High stadium ends with the Ravens, a huge underdog before kickoff, becoming the first team through to the AFC Championship game.
The temperature at kickoff was 13 degrees, the second coldest start to a home game in Broncos history. By halftime, it dropped to 9 degrees with a minus-3 wind chill.
According to the Elias Sports Bureau, this was the first playoff game in NFL history with an offensive, defensive and special teams touchdown in the first quarter. The Ravens and the Broncos combined to achieve this feat in the first 5 minutes, 11 seconds. Holliday returned the game's first punt 90 yards for a touchdown, Smith caught a 59-yard touchdown on the second drive and Corey Graham brought back an interception 39 yards for a score on the third drive.
The Ravens will play the AFC championship game on the road next Sunday. Their opponent is to be determined. The Ravens will face the winner of Sunday's New England-Houston game. During the regular season, the Ravens beat the Patriots (31-30) and lost to the Texans (43-13).
