NFL world reacts to Lamar Jackson leading Baltimore Ravens on amazing comeback

Vincent Frank

For pretty much the first 2.5 quarters of Monday night’s game, Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens looked absolutely lost against the Indianapolis Colts.

Baltimore found itself 10-3 at halftime and 25-9 early in the fourth quarter. Then, something clicked for the former NFL MVP and his team inside M&T Bank Stadium.

Jackson led his team back on two huge fourth-quarter touchdown-scoring drives of 78 and 75 yards, respectively. Both drives culminated in two-point conversions on passes from Jackson to tight end Mark Andrews. Heck, the two connected on the touchdowns that helped Baltimore overcome a 16-point deficit.

With the game tied at 25 in overtime, Jackson then connected with Marquise Brown on a five-yard touchdown to win the game. Said pass brought to conclusion a 68-yard drive, ultimately ending up in a walk-off home win for Jackson and his Ravens.

As big of a win as this might have been for the Ravens, it’s equally as disheartening for the Colts. In fact, this is the first time the team has dropped a game in which it led by 16 points in the fourth quarter since all the way back in December of 1983. In an interesting tidbit, that represented the Colts’ final loss as a Baltimore-based team before relocating to Indianapolis.
