Ray Rice Turns to Nursery Rhyme to Describe Crazy 4th-and-29 Conversion Against Chargers

SAN DIEGO — Fourth-and-29 at their own 37, 1:37 left in regulation and trailing by three points.

Game over for the Baltimore Ravens?

Not so fast. After all, they were playing the San Diego Chargers, the masters of the come-from-ahead loss, and Ray Rice had the perfect play for the seemingly impossible situation.

“Check down, Hey Diddle Diddle, Ray Rice up the middle,” the Ravens running back said in describing the unbelievable play that helped the Ravens to a 16-13 overtime win against the staggering Chargers.

Six plays later, Justin Tucker kicked a 38-yard field goal to tie the game at 13 as regulation expired. Tucker made another 38-yarder with 1:07 left in overtime to win it.

But it was Rice’s 29-yard gain that saved the day and allowed the Ravens (9-2) to take an even firmer grip on the AFC North race. Pushed back by a holding call against guard Marshal Yanda and a 9-yard sack of Joe Flacco by Antwan Barnes, the Ravens were down to their last desperate shot.

“I was thinking we needed a miracle,” Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs said.

The Ravens got that miracle.
