Cynthinaty: Baltimore Ravens use 404 yards of club records in a hurry on Sunday to clinch the playoff spot, with Lamar Jackson throwing three touchdown passes to defeat Cynthinaty 38-3 for the second straight season. It was the first NFL quarterback to rush over 1,000 yards.
Ravens rolled up a total of 525 yards, with 404 rush yards being the most surrendered by the Bengals defense. Rookie JK Dobbins rushed to 160 yards and two touchdowns, including a 72-yard score in the third quarter.
Baltimore has won five straight games and advanced to the postseason for three consecutive seasons.
Jackson rushed 97 yards and threw 113 yards before taking his seat in the third quarter. He performed or passed at least one touchdown with 36 straight starts. This is the longest active streak in the NFL.
The appearance of another Ravens Playoffs didn’t look likely just a few weeks ago. They started at 5-1 but COVID-19 (new coronavirus infection) (# If there is no character limit, add parentheses when it first appears Occurrence and injury to key players. They rebounded and won four straight games, and were in a position to secure a postseason spot for the season finale with Cincinnati (4-11-1), who won two straight games.
Baltimore (11-5) scored on the first two drives, a 34-yard Justin Tucker field goal, followed by a 43-yard touchdown pass from Jackson to Miles Boykin. Ravens extended the lead to 17-0 when Jackson capped a 93-yard drive to eat a watch with an 18-yard TD pass to Marquis Brown.
Austin Saber started a 38-yard field goal to give Bengals the only point in the afternoon.
Dobbins scored in a 4-yard burst in the third quarter, set up by Jackson’s 18, 6 and 20-yard rush. Jackson threw another scoring pass to Brown before leaving for a break, and Dobbins saw in the long run before Baltimore retreated.
Cincinnati quarterback Brandon Allen, who threw 371 yards and two touchdowns against the Texans last week, was 21-6 at 48 yards in two intercepts.
KOCH RECORD FALLS
Baltimore panther Sam Kok was forced to break the franchise record for 239 consecutive games when he was on the Reserve / COVID-19 list. He hasn’t missed a match in his 15-year NFL career. Ravens has signed Johnny Townsend, who was with him for a short time at the training camp, to punt on Sunday.
The last game of striped green?
Veteran wide receiver AJ Green may have played his last match as Bengal. Former Pro Bowler earned 18 million this year under the franchise tag, hoping to win a long-term contract, but had the worst statistical year of his 10-year career. The team needs to decide whether to offer him a new deal.
Ravens: No report.
Bengals: WR Tea Higgins was excluded due to a hamstring injury in the first quarter. C-Tray Hopkins was declared injured in the left knee in the second half.
Ravens will advance to the playoffs for the third consecutive year. The Bengali have finished another disappointing year and will extend the playoff drought to five seasons.
