11Winner: Ravens have found a winning formula
Three Lamar Jackson starts. Three Baltimore Ravens victories.
There’s no turning back now. Jackson isn’t a prolific passer at this point. Sometimes, he’s downright atrocious in this capacity. But his running abilities have sparked the offense, which had previously stagnated with the statuesque Joe Flacco leading the charge.
What Jackson has brought to the table meshes perfectly with Baltimore’s outstanding defense. Speaking of which, it held Matt Ryan and Co. to just nine points — Atlanta’s defense came up with a touchdown in this game — and 131 total yards of offense while scoring a touchdown of its own to ice the game.
Suddenly, a team that was careening to the bottom of the AFC North just a few weeks ago is 7-5 and in fantastic shape to make the playoffs.
