Full matchup history
(All stats according to

  • Regular season: Ravens lead 4-2
  • Post-season: N/A
  • Harbaugh Era: 2-0

Week 11 — 2015

The game where it all went to hell. In the first quarter, DT Aaron Donald blows past the offensive line and tackles RB Justin Forsett five yards behind the line of scrimmage. The tackle was quick and appeared harmless but when Forsett rolls onto his back, you’ll find his arm has an extra bend where it’s not supposed to.

Skipping ahead now to the last minute of the fourth quarter, tied at 13. On third down, Courtney Upshaw strip-sacked Case Keenum and Elvis Dumervil recovered to give the Ravens a chance with 0:54 seconds left on the Rams 41-yard line. Joe Flacco then stepped out onto the field to get Justin Tucker into field goal position. As Joe fires toward Chris Givens, James Hurst is thrown into Flacco’s left leg, which tears the quarterback’s ACL. Flacco stood up and attempted to walk it off. Someway, somehow, Flacco stayed in the game and ran three more players, before setting up Tucker’s game-winning 47-yard field goal. Flacco’s season was over.

Week 3 — 2011

For all the terrible memories of 2015, this game was a fun one.

In the first quarter, a rookie wide receiver out of Maryland went OFF for three touchdowns. His first completion was a 74-yard bomb from Flacco. His second touchdown catch of the day added another 41-yards. The third touchdown was an endzone fade of 18 yards. After Smith hung three, K Billy Cundiff notched three kicks of his own, to make the score 30-0. The Rams broke the shutout with 5:14 left in the third quarter, scoring a touchdown. The blowout ended with Haloti Ngata scoring his first and only career touchdown, a 28-yard fumble recovery.
