Jackson, Ravens Hand Patriots First Loss, Chargers, Chiefs Get Key Victories, Clutch Kawhi Leads Clippers Past Donovan, Jazz

Grace Higgins | November 4th, 2019

For the first time this season, over half a season at that, the New England Patriots vaunted, dominant defense looked normal as the Baltimore Ravens picked them apart on Sunday night to win 37-20. Keyed by the play of quarterback Lamar Jackson, the Ravens handed the Pats their first loss of the season. The 22-year old might not have had the traditional QB game, but he racked up over 200 yards of total offense (61 rushing and 163 yards throwing). He had one touchdown pass, while running back Mark Ingram, who ran for 116 yards total, had a TD run for 53 yards at one stage. The Patriots ended up giving up four total touchdowns to the Ravens offense in the game, the same number that they had allowed in the previous eight games combined. As a result of the win, the Ravens are now 6-2, virtually a game behind the Patriots in the AFC home-field race. The loss for the Pats also means that the NFL’s last unbeaten team is the San Francisco 49ers, who are at 8-0.

The Ringer

The Green Bay Packers came into the ninth week of the season feeling pretty good and sitting at 7-1. They ended up leaving Los Angeles, however, with a bad loss to the Chargers by a score of 26-11. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers could never really get anything going for the visitors, as the Chargers’ defense allowed just 84 combined yards in the first three quarters. The Chargers, who got two TD’s from Melvin Gordon and four field goals from Michael Bagdley, are now 4-5 and will face the Raiders in a divisional showdown on Thursday night. The Kansas City Chiefs, still sans Patrick Mahomes, also got themselves an impressive win, defeating the Minnesota Vikings 26-23. Vikings QB Kirk Cousins had another bad day, while Chiefs’ backup Matt Moore was solid for 275 yards and a TD throw. Harrison Butker, the kicker, however, was the big hero, nailing two late field goals, including a 54-yarder to ensure that the Chiefs won the game and improved to 6-3.

ABC7 Los Angeles

For the first two or three quarters of action on Sunday night, it looked like the Utah Jazz were going to cruise to a victory over the Los Angeles Clippers. Donovan Mitchell was firing on all cylinders, recording 36 points in total, and the defense was stifling Kawhi Leonard in a big way. So big, in fact, that he had just 12 points entering the fourth quarter and only five at half time. That’s when star players come out to play, though, with Kawhi putting the Clippers on his back in the fourth to the tune of 18 points. That showing was enough to lead them to a 105-94 win at home, taking them to 5-2 on the new season. It wasn’t the prettiest of showings, but it was gritty and plenty enough to show why he’s the best player in the world at the moment.
