MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. - Down by 10 points in the second quarter, their playoff chances fading, the Baltimore Ravens finally picked up a first down.

After that, the Miami Dolphins couldn't stop them.

The Ravens rallied with consecutive touchdown drives of 97 and 75 yards, then added the clinching score after a favorable replay reversal to beat Miami, 28-13, Sunday.

A gamble by coach John Harbaugh in the third quarter helped. The Ravens made a first down on fourth and 1 in their own territory, jump-starting the TD drive that put them ahead.

The victory gave Baltimore (8-5) a significant edge over Miami (7-6) in the AFC's scramble for a wild-card playoff berth. The Ravens also tightened the race for the AFC North title, helped by a loss by first-place Cincinnati (8-4-1) to Pittsburgh.

"Our fate is in our hands," Baltimore linebacker Terrell Suggs said. "If we win, we're in. That's the mentality we'll have down the stretch."

The Dolphins, who haven't been to the postseason since 2008, are now a long shot with three games to go. Their frustration boiled over in the final minutes, when defensive tackle Jared Odrick yelled at coach Joe Philbin on the sideline after a long Ravens gain.

"Emotions were running high," Odrick said. "I probably should have calmed down a little earlier."

Said Philbin: "Football's an emotional game. We had a discussion. I've already had another discussion with him. Football gets fiery out there. It's good."
