The Ravens sent the game to overtime but were unable to come away with a win.

That one is going to sting Ravens fans for a while.

The Chicago Bears were able to escape with a 23-20 win over the Ravens after a 38-yard field goal from Robbie Gould squeaked through the right upright.

It was a bizarre game, given multiple storm cells were coming through the Midwest. After the Ravens jumped out to a 10-0 lead, the game was halted for one hour and 53 minutes due to inclement weather. Before the stoppage in play, the Ravens possessed a great deal of momentum.

Ray Rice had already scored a touchdown and had a 47-yard run in the process, his longest of the season. Justin Tucker had just kicked a field goal with the wind swirling before the referees called for the suspension in play.

When play resumed almost two hours later, the Bears had seized the momentum from Baltimore.

Chicago was able to tie the game at 10-10 with 8:45 left to go in the second quarter after defensive end David Bass picked off a Joe Flacco pass and returned it for a touchdown.

From there, it was a grind-it-out kind of game, with both teams dirtying their jerseys and getting physical.

Tucker's short field goal with seven seconds to go in the fourth quarter got the game to overtime. But after Tandon Doss dropped a third down pass, the Bears were able to drive down the field to set up the game-winning field goal. The key play for Chicago was a 43-yard pass from Josh McCown to Martellus Bennett, with Lardarius Webb in coverage, that gave Gould a reasonable distance to kick from.

The Ravens were finally able to generate some production in their running game. Ray Rice recorded his first 100-yard day, running for 131 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries. But it wouldn't be enough for the Ravens, which are now

The loss drops Baltimore back to a three-way tie for second place with Cleveland and Pittsburgh. The Bengals remain in first place with a 7-4 record. The loss doesn't end the postseason hopes, but it certainly makes things much more difficult.
