NASHVILLE, Tenn. - As grudge matches go, this was worthy of the WWE. The Baltimore Ravens survived 13-10 against the Tennessee Titans on Saturday thanks to Matt Stover's 43-yard field goal with 53 seconds remaining.

Two teams with an extreme dislike for each other never stopped pounding it out in the wind and rain.

The difference: Baltimore forced three turnovers and never gave away the ball.

And when Joe Flacco led a 51-yard drive in the dying minutes to set up Stover's winning kick, the Ravens (13-5) were headed to the AFC championship game. Led by the first rookie quarterback to win two playoff games, the Ravens will play at Pittsburgh or San Diego next week for the right to go to the Super Bowl.

More after the jump.

{ .......... stepping very softly into the room. looking about cautiously for Blaq holding a taser. remembering my mama's lessons about being gracious to one's host. putting a lavishly giftwrapped years supply of ice cream sprinkles on MJ's desk...... }

Congrats on the Win, MJ. As a Saints fan, post-season celebrations are such a rarity that I'm not sure I'm qualified to comment.

{ oh ! what was that ? whew, thought I saw Blaq holding numb-chucks....}

Enjoy the win. Enjoy the sprinkles.

I'm gettin' while the gettin's good.............
