ChatRewind: A Ravens game to remember


The Baltimore Ravens' wild, 29-26 win over the Minnesota Vikings was still a hot topic in our weekly Ravens chat. For a full transcript, you can click right here. Here are some highlights:

Brad (Lynchburg, Va.): Were you at the game on Sunday and if so how does it rank as far as games attended for you?

Jamison Hensley (ESPN): I was there. It will go down as the most memorable regular-season game in Ravens history. You can't get much better with the snow in the first half and the crazy last two minutes.

Ryan (Hanover, Pa.): No chance that game was more memorable then the game against Seattle when Marcus Robinson caught three second half TDs. It was one of the NFL's greatest comebacks.

Jamison Hensley (ESPN): Sunday's game featured five lead changes in the final two minutes. The Ravens had a great comeback against Seattle, but that game isn't the biggest comeback for the Ravens anymore. They came back from 21 points to beat Arizona (2011) and rallied from 19 points down to win at Tennessee (2006).

PJ (Midlo): Any reason to worry about Torrey Smith and Joe Flacco chemistry? Also, I would suggest a reverse to Torrey this week and use Tyrod Taylor a few times but let him throw it after taking a step or two like he is running. We need to find creative ways to move ball and score. Flacco in pocket vs. the Lions is a feeding frenzy for that front four reeling from being torched by the Eagles.

Jamison Hensley (ESPN): I wouldn't worry about the chemistry too much right now. Teams are obviously focusing in on Torrey Smith, and it helps with Dennis Pitta coming back. That will take pressure off Torrey. John Harbaugh was asked about Smith's lack of production, and his response was that the team needs more big plays downfield from Smith. The last time he was held to one catch, he produced 61 yards the next game.

Pete (Oakland): I am not as convinced as others that all is well because of a miracle win at home against a very bad team. Also, it seems strange that people forgot that Flacco had three picks and 80-some yards passing at one point. Agree?

Jamison Hensley (ESPN): This has been Flacco for most of his career. Inconsistent and poor decisions for much of the game, and brilliant late in them. The increase in interceptions is Flacco trying to force plays. Let's see whether the amount of INTs change with Pitta getting more playing time.

Jason (Ellicott City, Md.): Odds that Haloti Ngata will be back next year?

Jamison Hensley (ESPN): He'll be back. The better question is at what salary will he be making?
