Relentless Ravens hand Patriots their first loss of the season

Relentless Ravens hand Patriots their first loss of the season

His ability to run makes him a startable option this week. Brady went 30 for 46 for 285 yards and a touchdown, and Edelman and Mohamed Sanu each had 10 catches. Remember that only 18 months ago, Jackson was selected with the 32nd overall pick in the draft, meaning that every team in the league passed over him once. Led by dynamic quarterback Lamar Jackson, the Ravens strung together the longest three drives against the Patriots this season, according to ESPN Stats & Information research. The Ravens now have a two game lead on 2 place Pittsburgh, in the AFC North, and can move within 1.5 games of the Patriots for the top overall seed in the AFC with a win Sunday night. He agreed that the Patriots committed too many self-inflicted mistakes to overcome.

"Losses always find a way to recalibrate how you see yourself", Brady said. "There's some family things I am thinking about with the holidays coming up, but outside of that I am thinking about football and how I can be the best for the New England Patriots". Running back Mark Ingram totaled 116 yards on 15 carries, a performance highlighted by a 53-yard run at the start of the second quarter.

DEFENSIVE DOMINANCE - The Ravens will be facing a Patriots defense that ranks among the NFL's best in several categories. This game is strength vs strength as the Patriots have the best defense in the league, and potentially ever, and the Ravens have a dynamic offense led by Lamar Jackson and the ground game. (5-52-0), Antonio Brown (4-49-1), DeAndre Hopkins (8-78-0), Allen Robinson (1-4-0) and Davante Adams (6-40-1) mostly in check over the past season and a half. He has joined Michael Vick and Russell Wilson as the only quarterbacks ever to have three 100-yard rushing games in a season. White ended up with 75 receiving yards, more than he has had in any other game this season. They also host the Green Bay Packers and Los Angeles Rams, and travel for games against the Ravens, New Orleans Saints, and Seahawks during the weeks leading to the end of the regular season.

On the offensive side, Tom Brady has to get the ball out quick and control tempo.
