Splitting The Bills

Ravens 24, Bills 17 : Splitting The Bills – The Ravens win in Buffalo to clinch a Playoff berth in a hard fought game against another Playoff contender, as QB Lamar Jackson throws 3 TD passes & nearly breaks the rushing record for yards in a season by a QB. The Bills swarming defense holds the Ravens to just a Justin Tucker 37 yard FG in the 1st quarter & Jackson finds TE Nick Boyle on a 3-yard lob into the endzone to make it 10-0 in the 2nd, but ex-Raven Steven Hauschka connects on FG’s of 36 & 47 yards to make it 10-6 @ the half. The Ravens need just 3 plays to go 75 yards in the 3rd quarter, as Jackson finds TE Hayden Hurst on a 61-yard TD pass to make it 17-6 & Jackson hits WR Willie Snead on a 4-yard TD pass to make it 24-9 in the 4th. Buffalo cuts it to 1 score late in the game, but their rally falls short. Baltimore wins their 9th in a row, but will have a quick turnaround as they prepare for Thursday night.
