BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens showed their resiliency against the Minnesota Vikings, rallying three times in the fourth quarter to squeeze out another close victory at home.
They defending Super Bowl champions will need all of that resolve to survive a difficult schedule down the stretch.
With a three-touchdown flurry over the final 125 seconds Sunday, the Ravens won their third straight — all at home — to remain in front of the race for the final AFC wild-card slot.
Next up: A visit to Detroit for a Monday Night duel against the Lions.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh says, "We'll have to play the best we've played all year."
That's because Baltimore is 6-1 at home and 1-5 on the road — the lone win coming at Miami on Oct. 6.
