The Baltimore Ravens trailed the Indianapolis Colts from the first two minutes of the game until they managed to get a tie at the last minute, forcing the game into overtime after the Colts missed a field goal.

Colts kicker Rodrigo Blankenship had been dealing with a hip issue and squandered his shot at winning the game for the team when his 47-yard attempt sailed wide left with only four seconds left on the clock.

The Ravens' dramatic comeback

The Ravens then turned the tables and scored a touchdown to win the final game of Week 5 of NFL action at the M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore on Monday night.

Star quarterback Lamar Jackson combined with wide receiver Marquise Brown for the touchdown that won them the game, during the opening drive of overtime.

The 24-year-old signal-caller had a career passing day, tallying 442 yards and four touchdowns, all of them in the second half.

The Indiana Colts had gotten off to a galloping start with a touchdown just two minutes into the game. The Ravens’ game couldn’t seem to take off, and they ended the first quarter without getting onto the board. They only managed a field goal in the second quarter, and ended the first half trailing 10-3. The lead widened to 22-3 in the second half.

Lamar Jackson turns things around

Then Jackson led the team’s comeback, connecting with Brown with a 43-yard touchdown pass which brought the Ravens out of their slump.

Baltimore has managed to keep their winning streak after being handed their single loss in the season opener, and now tops the AFC North board with a 4-1 record.

The Colts meanwhile headed further south after blowing a 25-9 fourth quarter lead, slipping to 1-4 in the AFC South standings.
