Final Score

Baltimore Ravens 42, New York Jets 21

Baltimore Ravens

Lamar Jackson continued his stellar season on Thursday night against the Jets. Jackson repeatedly picked up yards as a runner and ultimately broke Michael Vick’s single-season rushing record. The former first-round pick also threw for five touchdowns before being taken out of the game in the fourth quarter.

Mark Ingram II had a productive night on the ground and capped off the Ravens’ opening drive with a six-yard touchdown run. He also caught a touchdown pass in the fourth quarter. Rookie wideout Marquise Brown made a fantastic toe-dragging catch in the back of the end zone for a 24-yard touchdown in the third quarter and Seth Roberts followed that by making a nice spinning catch to haul in a 33-yard score, which shows just how well the Ravens' offense was clicking on Thursday night.

Edge defender Tyus Bowser had himself a nice game against the Jets' offensive line. He played just 11 pass-rush snaps in the contest but secured a hurry and a key third-quarter strip-sack.

Domata Peko Sr. also put on a standout performance for his team. He generated a couple of quarterback pressures and contributed three defensive stops against the run.

New York Jets

Few things went right for the Jets offensively, but wide receiver Jamison Crowder was a bright spot. He caught six of the 10 passes that were thrown his way for 90 yards, 41 yards after the catch and two touchdowns. He may have dropped what should have been an easy touchdown in the second quarter, but credit it where it's due, he followed that up with an incredible diving touchdown catch on the very next play.

Jets center Jonotthan Harrison had a torrid time against a strong Ravens front. He was regularly beaten at the point of attack, and he seemed to have no answer for the Ravens' pass-rush.

Tarell Basham picked up a fourth-quarter clean-up sack of Lamar Jackson as he fled the pocket. Two plays later, he blocked a Sam Koch punt that B.J. Bello scooped up and returned for a touchdown.

The Jets' secondary was flat-out obliterated in this one. The team's cornerbacks and safeties combined to allow eight receptions from 10 targets, and they gave up 148 yards, two touchdowns, four first downs and a perfect passer rating of 158.3.
