The team was looking for its fourth straight win as they hosted the Giants. The Ravens outgained their guests, 147-13, in the first quarter in taking a 14-0 lead.
Lamar Jackson would throw for only 183 yards but struck for scores to Marquise Brown and Dez Bryant. But the third-year quarterback would run for 80 yards – part of a ground attack that finished with 249 yards. Baltimore’s defense sacked Daniel Jones six times and allowed just 54 rushing yards.
The team had quite the challenge ahead of them as they headed to Lambeau Field to take on the NFC North champions. And with the Colts losing earlier on Sunday, the Titans could wrap up their first division title since 2008.
Mike Vrabel’s team trailed 19-0 early, narrowed the deficit to five points in the third quarter and was then outscored 21-0 the rest of the way. Ryan Tannehill threw for one score and ran for another but was picked off twice.
Pete Carroll’s squad had an opportunity to clinch the NFC West if they could avenge an earlier season loss to the Rams. Each team wound up with a pair of field goals after 30 minutes of play. And Seattle’s defense would keep Sean McVay’s team out of the end zone all afternoon.
As usual, Russell Wilson took his lumps vs. this defense and was sacked five times. But he also threw a touchdown pass and ran for another score in the division-clinching win.
