The final ride rode into Denver and left with at least one more stop on its itinerary.
It will probably go down as one of the greatest games in NFL postseason history, a contest with big plays and huge swings in momentum.
It looked like the Ravens would be making offseason vacation plans with the ball on the 30-yard line and less than a minute to play.
That's when the craziest of crazy plays happened, with Joe Flacco throwing a bomb to Jacoby Jones that resulted in the game-tying touchdown.
Flacco outplayed Peyton Manning, throwing for 332 yards and three touchdowns. His only blemish of the day was a fumbled snap that was recovered by the Broncos.
Manning finished with 298 yards and three touchdowns, but it was the two interceptions by Corey Graham that made the difference. Graham took a deflected pass back for a touchdown in the first quarter and made an interception in overtime that set up Justin Tucker's 47-yard, game-winning field goal.
The Ravens had to overcome surrendering a punt and a kickoff return for a touchdown, which was really shocking given that they had the top-ranked special teams unit during the regular season.
Torrey Smith really stepped up for the Ravens after being a non-factor in the first meeting between the two teams. Smith hauled in a couple of long touchdown passes and could have had two more if Flacco had not overthrown him.
The Ravens will travel to either New England or Houston with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line.
