Devonta Freeman, Tyler Huntley propel Ravens past Bears
Devonta Freeman’s 3-yard touchdown run with 22 seconds left lifted the visiting Baltimore Ravens to a 16-13 win against the Chicago Bears on Sunday.
After the Bears took a 13-9 lead with 1:41 remaining, the Ravens, helped by a 21-yard pass interference penalty and a 30-yard completion from quarterback Tyler Huntley to Sammy Watkins, drove 72 yards in five plays.
Andy Dalton had found Marquise Goodwin for a 49-yard touchdown pass with 1:41 remaining to give Chicago (3-7) the lead.
Earlier in the fourth, Baltimore (7-3) had taken a 9-7 lead on Justin Tucker’s 46-yard field goal, his third of the day, with 3:41 to play.
Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson was inactive because of an illness not related to COVID-19. Tyler Huntley, undrafted out of Utah in 2020, made his first NFL start and completed 26-of-36 passes for 219 yards and one interception and ran for 40 yards.
Dalton came on early in the third quarter when Justin Fields left with a rib injury after being hit on a 6-yard run. Dalton finished 11-for-23 for 201 yards and two touchdowns.
After a deflected punt, the Ravens started at the Chicago 45 with 7:29 remaining, and after seven plays, Tucker connected from 46 yards out.
In the third, Dalton took the Bears 83 yards in two plays. First, he hit Jimmy Graham for 23 yards to the 40, and then he passed to Darnell Mooney on a bubble screen and the receiver broke several tackles en route to a 60-yard touchdown … giving the Bears a 7-6 lead with 8:02 left.
The Ravens took over on the Bears 49 after stopping David Montgomery on fourth-and-1. Baltimore drove to the 22, but Huntley was intercepted by a diving Tashaun Gibson at the 14.
The Bears were driving when Fields was sacked and fumbled, with the Ravens recovering at their own 34. On third-and-10, Huntley scrambled 19 yards to the Bears 47. The Ravens drove to the Bears 17 before being forced to settle for a Tucker field goal.
Baltimore took over at their own 37 with just over a minute left in the half. On fourth-and-one at the Chicago 43, Huntley ran eight yards and the Ravens later ended the half with a 27-yard Tucker field goal.
The Ravens played without wide receiver Marquise Brown (thigh injury).
