Ravens beat Colts 23-16 to edge closer to playoff berth

The Ravens' attendance also probably hasn't been helped by a fairly weak home slate.

"We have responded to your concerns about the protest by redoubling the efforts of both the organization and our players to make the Baltimore area a better community", he wrote. But a third-down sack and a fourth-down incomplete pass ended the upset bid and left the Colts (3-12) with their sixth straight defeat. The Colts (3-11) are one of the league's worst teams, ravaged by injuries and insufficient talent.

The Baltimore Ravens are no longer in contention for the AFC North title, having fallen too far behind the Steelers, but they are now tied with the Bills and the Titans for a wild card slot and they've been showing a lot of potential. Striving for its first postseason berth since 2014, Baltimore has won five of six.

"This was a big test for us", said Flacco. "That's the thing, it's a win", Harbaugh said.

Ravens get into holiday spirit after the win as defensive lineman Carl Davis dresses up as Santa and linebacker Matthew Judon wears an elf costume. "But we've got to continue to do our business the right way, continue to do what we've been doing, and I think we'll be all right". "Its not always pretty".

Flacco is 16-for-22 for 157 yards, with a touchdown and no interception, and he's playing good football in a game Baltimore needs to win.

"We had a great chance to win this game", Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett said. Perhaps the lesson can be taken forward next year and we can get back to enjoying the game. There are some of you who have stayed away from our games.

At least 37 feared dead after shopping mall fire in Philippines
The Davao City Police Office said the fire was first reported to have taken place at 9:35 am, just before the mall was to open to shoppers.

"It's very frustrating", running back Frank Gore said.

That's six teams, only one of whom appears destined for the playoffs, with a combined 17-19 at the time of those matchups.

The Colts' season has been long over as quarterback Andrew Luck has been out all season. Moore has caught 15 passes for 213 yards and two touchdowns this season.

In this one, Indianapolis didn't commit a turnover against the team that leads the league with 33 takeaways.

After kicking a field goal on its first possession, Baltimore blocked a field goal try by Vinatieri.

Vinatieri's 30-yard field goal pulled the Colts to within 23-16 with 4:33 left in the game.
