Derrick Henry does it ALL in Playoff win over top seeded Ravens

Who thought that outside of Nashville, the Tennessee Titans would dominate the best placed Baltimore Ravens in their AFC Divisional round matchup?

A simple look at the way the Bills and Titans ran their offense would suggest the Bills need to address their secondary running back position this offseason and rely on the run game more in 2020.

Before we fully turn the page on this game and look forward to the AFC Championship, check out our main takeaways from this stunning upset below.

After a 14-2 campaign, the Ravens got blitzed by the Tennessee Titans out of the gate, trailing by double-digits much of the contest before ultimately falling 28-12 in the Divisional Round.

Following a pair of field goals, Baltimore had the ball down 8 on their first possession of the second half, where again they were faced with a 4th and 1, this time inside the Red Zone. The Titans are a unsafe opponent for the Ravens due to their ability to use running back Derrick Henry to control the clock and the game.

It was a bitter end to Yanda's 13th National Football League season.

Jackson was 31-for-59 in the game with 365 passing yards, 143 rushing yards, a touchdown pass, two interceptions and a lost fumble. We will talk for sure [Sunday], and we will see where that conversation goes, just from a standpoint of two people talking.

"I would never, ever spit on another man, another person, individual, ever", Yanda contended a few days after the episode.

Yup, that's a leader I'd want to have leading my team for many years to come. That's exactly what happened a year ago, when Baltimore scored two late touchdowns in its playoff opener against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Asked about the message of the meeting, Humphrey said, "I don't really know the vibe of it". "He's going to respond by being extremely motivated and determined to improve as a football player".

"I've been doing that since high school", Henry said.

The Ravens lead the overall series 12-11, and the road team has won all three playoff games to date.

It's easy to imagine Henry playing outside linebacker and disrupting games as a pass rusher like Miller, who has totaled 106 sacks in his career.

"Only fitting you have to go through Baltimore in Baltimore to get a victory for the Titans", Bishop said. Baltimore returns 19 of 22 starters, including everyone from its offense.

"We have to focus on the Ravens of 2019", Vrabel said. "It's only up from here".
