Sure enough, the Ravens took the chance to score, with kicker Justin Tucker giving the team a three-point advantage with a 47-yard field goal.
Unfortunately for Lamar Jackson and the Ravens, while they thought they had the game in the bag, the Raiders staged another comeback to force overtime.
Raiders kicker Daniel Carlson sent the Las Vegas fans at Allegiant Stadium going wild with a 55-yard field goal that tied the game at 27-all. It was undoubtedly a shocking development for Baltimore, who was almost at the cusp of victory only to be denied seconds before the game ended.
