Baltimore Ravens knock off St. Louis Rams on last-second field goal, but lose Joe Flacco for season

ravensJustin Tucker was good from 47 yards as time expired, completing a fourth-quarter comeback for the Baltimore Ravens, who won 16-13 over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.

That was the good news. The bad news: quarterback Joe Flacco was lost for the season with a torn ACL.

Flacco finished the game after suffering the injury on the game-winning drive. Coach John Harbaugh said after the game that the injury could be more significant.

Flacco’s backup is University of Virginia alum Matt Schaub, a former Pro Bowl player with the Houston Texans who signed with Baltimore before the season.

On Sunday, the Ravens (3-7) trailed 13-3 entering the fourth quarter. A Todd Gurley fumble set the Ravens up at the Rams 42, and Baltimore got closer on a Flacco-to-Kamar Aiken 3-yard touchdown pass that made it 13-10 with 11:11 left.

A 20-yard Tucker field goal tied it at 13-13 with 5:12 to go.

Tucker then missed a potential go-ahead field goal from 51 yards with 1:13 left. St. Louis quarterback Case Keenum fumbled on a third-down sack to set up the Ravens at the Rams 41 with 54 seconds left, preceding the final long kick from Tucker.

Flacco was 27-for-44 for 299 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions.
