The Baltimore Ravens made the move to start Lamar Jackson and upgrade their running game, which has started to create big plays in the passing game. After gashing the Los Angeles Chargers defense all night with the run, Jackson hit them with his rocket arm on a 68-yard touchdown.

Just moments after the Chargers took the lead in the third quarter, Baltimore’s rookie quarterback immediately responded. On first down, Jackson stood in the pocket and dropped a perfect ball right into tight end Mark Andrew’s hands in stride for the 68-yard score.

Tight ends have played an integral role in Baltimore’s offense since Jackson became the starter and he showed just where his timing is in a short amount of time for Andrews. More importantly, the big play put Baltimore back in the lead and opens the door for its offense to get back on track in this game by attacking Philip Rivers.
