Baltimore and Washington play home games only 32 miles apart, but this was only the fourth meeting between the teams -- the first in Baltimore. The Ravens hold a 3-1 lead in the series, and probably won't get another crack at Washington until 2012.
Reed will be 34 then, and the Redskins would be delighted to buy him a retirement gift if he decides to walk away from the game before their next matchup.
"Ed is a great player, an elite safety," Washington safety LaRon Landry said. "You just admire what he does and try to play like him."
Matt Stover kicked a 32-yard field goal in the third quarter to end a 14-play drive and make it 17-0, and it appeared the Ravens would coast to victory.
But Washington got a field goal after an interception by Landry, and DeAngelo Hall returned a fumble by Willis McGahee 13 yards to the Baltimore 30 to set up a fourth-down touchdown pass from Campbell to Antwaan Randle El with 10:17 left.
It was the first TD against the Ravens in 13 quarters and 46 possessions.
Baltimore then launched an 83-yard drive in which McClain ran 10 times for 43 yards before Flacco threw a 28-yard touchdown pass to Mason.
"I think you look at everybody on our football team and see frustration," Redskins coach Jim Zorn said. "There's no faking it. We have three games left now, and it's sudden death."
Notes: Olympic star Michael Phelps was part of the record crowd of 71,438. ... Portis moved in 2nd place on the Redskins career rushing list with 5,876 yards. ... Suggs got a sack to move into 2nd place on the Ravens' career list. He has 51 1/2, trailing only Peter Boulware (70). ... Redskins LT Chris Samuels left with a triceps injury, and RT Jon Jansen has a sprained ligament in his knee.
