Just when it looked like the New England Patriots were set to take control of the game Sunday night, the Baltimore Ravens got a gift. Julian Edelman fumbled, and Marlon Humphrey scooped up the gift, taking it 70 yards to the house for a touchdown.

This play absolutely turned the game around. The Ravens scored the game’s first 17 points before a flubbed punt gave the Patriots the chance they needed to get into the game. At the half, it was 17-13 Baltimore, but it looked like the Patriots were set to go ahead for the first time in the game.

Instead, Humphrey’s scoop-and-score touchdown gave the Ravens a 24-13 lead with just over 12 minutes remaining in the third quarter.
