Ravens Beat Jets On TNF

Grace Higgins | December 13th, 2019

The Baltimore Ravens defeated the New York Jets, 42-21, behind five passing touchdowns from MVP candidate Lamar Jackson.


The Ravens did what they’ve done all season; jumping to an early lead and dominating their opponents throughout the whole game. The offense scored two touchdowns in the first quarter from a Mark Ingram six-yard run and a Jackson five-yard pass to Miles Boykin. Ingram rushed for 76 yards and one touchdown, adding to his impressive season, which includes 887 rushing yards and nine rushing touchdowns. Once again, Jackson led the team in rushing yards for the game with 86.

The Jets responded with a Jamison Crowder four-yard touchdown reception from Sam Darnold. Darnold passed for 218 yards and two touchdowns, while Crowder caught six passes for 90 receiving yards and two touchdowns.

The Ravens quickly scored on the next possession, with Jackson throwing a one-yard touchdown pass to Mark Andrews, who has proven to be Jackson’s favorite target. The successful two-point conversion gave the Ravens a 21-7 lead at halftime.

For the game, Jackson finished with 212 passing yards and five touchdowns. Jackson hasn’t passed for over 225 yards in a game since Oct. 13 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Yes, his dual threat abilities make him a weapon on every play, but is the Jackson hype a product of the highlight culture that has invaded social media?

The third quarter was owned by the Ravens, as Jackson threw touchdown passes to both Marquise Brown and Seth Roberts. The Jets offense was unable to retaliate and suppress the scoring outburst by the Ravens.

After a blocked punt touchdown for the Jets, the Ravens put the final nail in the coffin with a touchdown pass from Jackson to Ingram. Even with the Jets scoring a late touchdown, the blowout was complete. The final score was 42-21, with the Ravens improving to 12-2 on the season and in clear control of the one seed for the AFC playoffs. The Jets fall to 5-9, during a season which started with playoff aspirations. A Le’Veon Bell trade rumor has begun to surface in the days prior to the game.
