Ravens vs. Chargers 2012: Baltimore shows 'resiliency' in overtime win

Donald Miralle

Baltimore Ravens fans were impressed with the resiliency of the team in their 16-13 overtime victory over the San Diego Chargers.

The Baltimore Ravens shocked the San Diego Chargers on Sunday, erasing a 10-point fourth quarter deficit and ultimately winning the game 16-13 in overtime. Several big plays late were key in the Ravens' victory, including Ray Rice's 30-yard reception on fourth-and-29 that set up the game-tying field goal by Justin Tucker. Torrey Smith's beautiful catch in overtime put Tucker in position to nail the game-winner.

Baltimore never led during the game and probably had no business winning it, which is why Zachary Beard of SB Nation's Ravens blog Baltimore Beatdown called it "as big a roller coaster as we've seen this season." Beard also lauded the Ravens' ability to overcome adversity:

This game was a true test to the Baltimore Ravens' resiliency. After losing multiple key defensive players, and battling an uphill battle the entire game, the Baltimore Ravens have fought their way to a record of 9-2, with a comfortable cushion between them and their AFC North rivals.

Baltimore now has a three-game lead in the AFC North over the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals. The Ravens and Steelers will square off in Week 13 at M&T Bank Stadium. Baltimore just beat Pittsburgh 13-10 in Week 11.
