The Baltimore Ravens won the overtime toss and elected to receive to open overtime, beginning from their own 24. After an incomplete pass by quarterback Joe Flacco, running back Ray Rice carried the rock for a four-yard gain, setting up a 3rd and 6. Flacco was flushed out of the pocket and took off, getting just three yards.
The defense did its job.
And, on the ensuing punt, rookie cornerback Richard Crawford — returning for the first time all season — took the 56-yard kick 64 yards to the Baltimore 24-yard line.
The huge special-teams play set up a 34-yard, game-winning Kai Forbath field goal as the Redskins pulled out a inspired 31-28 win over the AFC North-leading Ravens in front of a spirited FedExField crowd.
The hero of the game, other than Crawford, is rookie quarterback Kirk Cousins, who took over for a hobbled Robert Griffin III in the closing minutes of the fourth quarter and led his team to a game-tying touchdown and two-point conversion.
