Torrey Smith turned in an emotional -- and sensational -- performance under very difficult circumstances.
His teammates on the Baltimore Ravens helped make it a winning effort. Rookie Justin Tucker kicked a 27-yard field goal as time expired, giving the Ravens a 31-30 victory over the New England Patriots on Sunday night in a rematch of the AFC championship game.
Smith started and scored two touchdowns for the Ravens, less than 24 hours after his younger brother was killed in a motorcycle accident late Saturday night. Smith left the team shortly after midnight Sunday but returned in time for warmups. The second-year wide receiver finished with six catches for 127 yards including 2 Touchdowns!
"It was tough, emotionally," Smith said. "I didn't know how I would hold up. "It means a lot not just for us but for my family. ... That's for my little brother."
A moment of silence was observed before the game for Smith's brother, 19-year-old Tevin Jones.
