Ravens Come Close to Spoiling Pats Perfect Season in 27-24 Loss

Baltimore Ravens' Ray Lewis wears the number of Washington Redskins' Sean Taylor on his eye black during the second half an NFL football game against the New England Patriots, Monday, Dec. 3, 2007, in Baltimore. Taylor died Tuesday, Nov. 27, after being shot by a home intruder.

The Ravens almost pulled out the upset of the year Monday night, but in the end the Patriots survived another scare, pulling out a 27-24 win over the Ravens in Baltimore to remain perfect on the season.  Tom Brady’s eight-yard touchdown pass to Jabar Gaffney in the corner of the end zone with 44 seconds left lifted New England to victory and a 12-and-0 record.  Baltimore’s Kyle Boller heaved a 52-yard bomb that was caught by Mark Clayton at the two-yard line with no time left, but he was tackled right there to end the game.  Brady finished 18-of-38 for 257 yards and two TD’s for the Pats, who overcame three seven-point deficits to keep their chance at a perfect season alive.  Randy Moss caught four balls for 34 yards and a score in the win.  Boller was 15-of-23 for 210 yards and two touchdows for the Ravens, who fell to 4-and-8.  Willis McGahee ran 30 times for 138 yards and a TD in defeat.
