3. An improbable Gardner Minshew completion hurt the Baltimore Ravens

After the Kenyan Drake fumble, the Ravens saw Patrick Mekari lose a repetition against Samson Ebukam, which caused a punt. The Colts started to take advantage of their lead in field position after the fumble and defensive stop.

Garnder Minshew put together a nice drive but then faced third down with three yards to go at the Ravens' 17-yard line. Zack Moss was fired out of the backfield and was picked up by Patrick Queen. Queen made a great play and was on Moss tight.

However, Minshew put the perfect amount of touch on his pass and he hit his man in stride. Moss caught the pass and found his way into the end zone for an easy score. This is a game-changing play. It is hard to fault the defense, either.

They played it perfectly, but Minshew to Moss was even better. That is a tough pill to swallow. It should not be a play that defines the game, and we will highlight other reasons this game flipped. Still, if that pass is an inch lower, or just a bit off, and Queen deflects it, then we are talking about a field goal coming since it was third down.

The Ravens would have led 7-3 at the worst, but instead, the score was tied 7-7. In a game in which the Ravens lost by three points in overtime, it is tough to live down the four-point swing of this play.
