Sunday’s finale in the NFL concluded with a 4th-quarter comeback that many viewers might’ve missed with an early bedtime. The Ravens tallied 12 unanswered points in the 4th to beat the Chiefs, and they iced it with a 4th-down QB run with Lamar Jackson inside two minutes. Ravens head coach John Harbaugh gets the nod for gutsiest call of the week.
