The Baltimore Ravens rallied for a 38-35 overtime win over the Denver Broncos on Saturday in a thrilling playoff encounter that puts them one win away from their first Super Bowl berth in 12 years.

The visiting Ravens stunned Denver when Justin Tucker kicked a 47-yard field goal in the second overtime to end a back-and-forth game that included a 90-yard punt return and 104-yard kickoff return for touchdowns from Denver's Trindon Holliday.

Denver seemed headed for victory in regulation until Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco threw a 70-yard touchdown pass to Jacoby Jones with 31 seconds left that tied the score at 35-35.

With the win, the Ravens advance to the American Football Conference championship game on Jan. 20, where they will play the winner of Sunday's game between the New England Patriots and Houston Texans.
