Three yards from the end, the Ravens extended their 100-yard streak to 43 yards. This is identical to the Pittsburgh Steelers record of 1977, when Jackson ran the ball five yard with three seconds remaining.

Jackson said that John Harbaugh, the head coach, was unsure of Jackson's thoughts when he made the decision to let Harbaugh run the ball. He said, "No, we're going to go for it."

Fangio, realizing what was happening, seemed to shout at his defensive line from the sideline, "get down!"

Fangio was frustrated by this unsportsmanlike act and let out several expletives. He threw his headset on the ground and walked to midfield.

Harbaugh said that he called the play.

Harbaugh stated, via ESPN: "It's one the things that's meaningful." It's a difficult record to achieve. It's a long-term goal. It's not more important than winning the match, but I won't deny it. It is certainly not.

"But, as head coach, I believe you do that to your players, and you do it for your coaches, so that they can have that experience for the rest their lives."
