Martellus Bennett’s overtime catch against tight coverage by cornerback Ladarius Webb for 43 yards was a game-altering reception and one of only two chances he had out of 31 pass attempts.

“It’s a credit to his character,” said quarterback Josh McCown. “It’s that deal where you don’t get the shots all game but then someone calls on you to hit the game-winner. That’s what he did today.

“It was a great catch by him, and I’m proud of him. It was something for us to build off of, and it was a reminder for all of us involved that you never know whose turn it is going to be and to stay ready.”

It was difficult for the Ravens to watch, because Webb had excellent position. “I thought he had good coverage,” said coach John Harbaugh. “It was a well-thrown ball in those circumstances. The tight end is a big man. He was kind of out of Lardarius’ reach, and made a nice play.”

Alshon Jeffery caught seven of the 11 passes thrown to him, and Brandon Marshall caught four balls, the two receivers combining for 125 receiving yards.

Tight end Dante Rosario’s lead block on Jeffery’s end-around in the second quarter was the key to an 11-yard gain.

Marshall’s downfield blocking was critical in Matt Forte’s go-ahead touchdown with a screen pass in the fourth quarter.
