Recap

Ray Rice racked up 233 total yards and two touchdowns and Billy Cundiff kicked three second-half field goals, lifting the Baltimore Ravens to a 30-24 home win against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

Rice rushed for 153 yards and a touchdown and had five catches for 80 yards and another score. Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco also threw a touchdown pass to tight end Ed Dickson, who started in place of injured Todd Heap for the second consecutive game.

Baltimore squandered a two-touchdown lead as Drew Brees threw three touchdown passes - two to tight end Jimmy Graham - but Cundiff kicked field goals of 32 and 27 yards in the fourth quarter to lift the Ravens to their second straight win.

The loss snapped a six-game winning streak for the defending Super Bowl champion Saints (10-4) and ensured New Orleans won't catch Atlanta in the NFC South this week.

The Saints started the day a game behind the Falcons, who played at Seattle later Sunday. The teams meet next Monday in Atlanta.

The win allowed the Ravens (10-4) to keep pace with Pittsburgh in the AFC North. They started the day a game behind the Steelers, who played at home against the Jets on Sunday afternoon.
