Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh has been around the game of football his entire life, but the ending of Baltimore’s 33–27 win over the Cleveland Browns on Monday left the coach in disbelief.
“I’ve never seen anything like it in my life,” Harbaugh said to Browns head coach Mike Pettine after the game ended on Ravens safety Will Hill's walk-off 64-yard touchdown on a blocked field goal.
Pettine seemed to be equally shocked following the game, but was understandably less excited than his counterpart.
“A tough one to wrap your brain around,” Pettine said.
Both teams were forced to use backup quarterbacks, with Austin Davis coming in for the Browns after starter Josh McCown suffered a shoulder injury and the Ravens employing Matt Schaub with regular starter Joe Flacco out for the year.
Cleveland looked to be in position to steal the win after cornerback Tramon Williams picked off Schaub with 50 seconds left. Instead, Travis Coons’s 51-yard field goal attempt ended up being blocked by defensive end Brent Urban and landing in the hands of Hill, who proceeded to run in the touchdown.
“One of the greatest football games you’re probably ever going to see in terms of excitement,” Harbaugh said after the game.
