I couldn’t believe this play when I first saw it. First, the fact that the Ravens were able to convert on 4th and 29, which just shows how completely inept the San Diego Chargers are. And secondly, that Ravens QB Joe Flacco threw a check down pass to Ray Rice on 4th and 29. Flacco should be very thankful that Rice is an explosive playmaker, because had he not converted, Flacco would have been taking a lot of heat for this. It should also be noted, that Ray Rice came up with a unique name for this play.
"Check down, Hey Diddle Diddle, Ray Rice up the middle," – Ray Rice describing his 29-yard gain on 4th down yesterday.
