Rob Carr/Getty Images(BALTIMORE) — A little bit of snow was not going to stop these two teams.

Marlon Brown hauled in a touchdown pass from Joe Flacco with four seconds remaining as the Baltimore Ravens rallied to defeat the Minnesota Vikings 29-26 on Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium.

Baltimore took a 15-12 lead with 2:05 remaining.  It was the first of five combined touchdowns by both teams in the final two minutes.  Matt Cassel hit Vikings rookie receiver Cordarrelle Patterson for a 79-yard touchdown with 45 seconds remaining, before the defending Super Bowl answered one final time.

“I’ve never seen a game like that before,” Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs said. “Besides the Super Bowl, that’s probably the most special win I’ve been a part of. Crazy game.”

The Ravens (7-6) have won three-straight and currently hold the second and final wild-card spot in the AFC playoff picture.

Minnesota (3-9-1) lost running back Adrian Peterson to a sprained left foot in the second quarter.  He had to be carted off the field through the snow and sleet.
