Ravens 27, Jaguars 7

BALTIMORE - Baltimore's Le'Ron McClain ran for two touchdowns in the pivotal first half as the Ravens routed Jacksonville to earn an AFC wild-card berth.

It was 24-7 at halftime, and Baltimore never let up against the stumbling Jags (5-11), who committed four turnovers and were held scoreless over the final 45 minutes.

Ravens rookie QB Joe Flacco, the Audubon High product, set the tone early by completing a 48-yard pass to Mark Clayton on the game's fourth offensive play, setting up a field goal by Matt Stover.
