NFL Week 15 Scores And Results: Ravens Edge Saints Behind Ray Rice's Huge Day

In a game featuring two playoff-bound teams currently sitting in second place in their respective divisions, the Baltimore Ravens got two late field goals from Billy Cundiff to overcome a New Orleans Saints rally, winning 30-24 at home.

Ray Rice had a huge day for the Ravens, and the Saints had no answer for his dominance all afternoon. Rice rushed 31 times for 153 yards and a touchdown, and also added five receptions, another 80 yards and a second touchdown in the passing game. Both of Rice's touchdowns came in the second quarter as the Ravens opened up a 21-7 first-half lead, and was instrumental as the Ravens put the game on ice late in the fourth quarter.

Drew Brees, however, did his best to get the Saints a big road win after the Ravens went up by two touchdowns. Brees found rookie tight end Jimmy Graham for two scores in the first half (the Saints trailed 21-14 at halftime), then had a tipped pass caught in incredible fashion by Lance Moore to tie the game at 24 in the fourth quarter. Brees threw for 267 yards and three touchdowns on the day, but in the end, the Ravens got enough big plays from Rice and their defense to hang on and win going away.

Both of these teams now sit at 10-4 on the season and are paying ardent attention to Pittsburgh and Atlanta. Visit Baltimore Beatdown and Canal Street Chronicles for more on this contest.
