WINNING DRIVE: All the Ravens really had to do was reach midfield to get close to Tucker's range, but even that seemed unlikely when Baltimore faced third-and-15 from its own 28.
Then Joe Flacco found Jacoby Jones for a 27-yard gain to give the Ravens new life.
ELAM'S LAST LAUGH: Matt Elam, Baltimore's rookie safety, caused a stir in the week leading up to the game by saying that Johnson "is pretty old."
Then he made a couple mistakes that helped Detroit score a touchdown early in the first quarter. First, Elam gave the Lions a first down with a personal foul penalty — he hit Stafford as the Detroit quarterback slid short of the marker on a third-down scramble. Then Elam missed badly on a tackle, allowing Nate Burleson to gain about 10 extra yards on a dump-off by Stafford.
But it was Elam who followed Tucker's 61-yard kick with the interception that helped the Ravens seal the game.
