Quick score and an answer

After linebacker Bart Scott intercepted Rivers deep in Chargers territory, the Ravens tied the game at 7 when Daniel Wilcox scored on a 5-yard pass from Steve McNair.

Bumbling on both sides

The Ravens caught a break when Kaeding was wide right on a 40-yard field-goal attempt, his first miss in 16 tries. The Ravens' offense then marched down the field to the 2-yard line, where Wilcox fumbled on a questionable shovel pass call. The quarter ended with McNair falling down after getting tripped while dropping back.

McNair delivers again

McNair threw his second interception of the game, giving the Chargers the ball at the Ravens' 25-yard line. But San Diego then began to unravel, fumbling the snap on a field-goal attempt and taking a safety on its next possession. On the Ravens' final possession, McNair was 4-for-5 for 43 yards, including the game-winning touchdown pass to Heap with 34 seconds remaining.

Scoring

Ravens: Safety, Scifres ran out of end zone, 3:12.
