OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) - Ray Rice's incredible fourth-down journey through the San Diego defense helped the Baltimore Ravens move closer to a second straight AFC North title.
It's also possible that Rice's catch-and-run gem Sunday - a 29-yard gain on a fourth-and-29 situation - could ultimately be the defining moment for a team in the hunt to secure the top seed in the AFC playoffs.
Coach John Harbaugh said Monday, ``We'll see what it means, if we can capitalize on it and stack some success on top of that.''
Baltimore beat the Chargers 16-13 in overtime.
If the Ravens (9-2) beat Pittsburgh (6-5) this Sunday and Cincinnati loses to San Diego, Baltimore will clinch the division title.
Meanwhile, Harbaugh says linebacker Ray Lewis could return this season from a torn right triceps.
