Lamar Jackson: We’re looking to go 7-3 this week, not for playoff revenge

The Ravens will host the Titans on Sunday and Tennessee’s last visit to Baltimore didn’t go well for the home team.

Derrick Henry ran for 195 yards and threw a touchdown while the Titans Defense forced three turnovers in a 28-12 divisional round win over the top-seeded Ravens last January. The Ravens were 14-2 coming into the game, but the loss dashed any Super Bowl hopes that might have been taking root.

On Wednesday, Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson was asked about getting another chance at the Titans and he said that “every game is a big game.”

“It’s not a revenge game,” Jackson said. “The game is over with, it was last year. We just fell short, can’t do anything about it. We’re just going into this game trying to be 7-3. That’s all.”

The Titans are also 6-3 and results of this game will have implications on the race for spots in this season’s playoffs, so there’s enough at stake in the present and future to keep past results from taking precedence.

  1. Jackson is a weapon when he has a great team around him but he isn’t a QB that will carry a team. Need an accurate passer for that. Will be interesting to see what kind of contract he will be offered or if they try to find the next Lamar in the draft. The thought by some GMs was the Ravens feel they can keep replacing their QB and keep a good roster around him.

  2. Ravens are definitely in a down swing but every game is its own story – they will need some 2nd teamers to step up in the trenches on both sides of the ball to win this week

    I said almost the same thing a few weeks back – will be very interesting to see where Lamar’s game is and what Ravens GM DeCosta will do come contract time

  4. I dont expect this Titans defense to be able to do much with Lamar in this one. This defense is not the same one that had an exceptional game plan for them in the playoffs last year.

    -Titans fan

  5. The Ravens always play better when they are ticked off. I am sure Harbaugh is going to show them some so-called prognosticators giving their 2 cents about the demise of the Ravens, and talking smack about them. The Ravens have injuries in very critical positions and will find a way to overcome that and limit Henry. If Henry is limited, they can probably outscore the Titans. 29-17

  6. As a Ravens fan I have to say, our injuries are probably much to overcome this week. If Williams and Campbell don’t play, Henry will go off. Madubuike is not ready for prime time just yet. And our O-Line is still trying to find some cohesion ever since Stanley went down for the season. Last week’s performance didn’t give me a lot of hope.
    But that’s why they play the game. Last week all the pundits picked the Ravens and look what happened.

    This is true for literally every QB except LAMAR Jackson.. Every other QB specifically Limited UNATHLETIC QB’S, need the BEST weapons just to be marginally productive. For example BAKER MAYFIELD, Aaron Rodger was pedestrian without Jordy Nelson and would be lost without Devante Adams, Tom Brady is only 6-3 and his team is STACKED WITH WEAPONS. Lamar Jackson is 6-3 with his team falling apart, and went 14-2 without any bonafied weapons last year. Imagine Lamar Jackson on the Bucaneers or the Browns with their weapons, baker Mayfield was struggling with Odell Beckam, Landry, Chubbs, and Kareem Hunt! lmao. What we have here isa moving of the goal post. First you say the guy should move to receiver, his first year he saves the Ravens from a mediocre Joe Flacco getting the Ravens to the playoffs for the first time in three years, three years where flacco and Harbaugh struggled to produce. Essentially, Lamar saved Johns job. Lamars contemporaries have not reached the playoffs yet, and they were DRAFTED WAY higher. Any other rookie who won 6 games to get their team into the playoffs would be praised, but Lamar had the goal post moved again, this time they said down played him carrying the Ravens on his back to the playoffs, and said he isn’t accurate in the passing game. The next year he lead the league in passer rating and touch down throws “Not bad for a running back” or a QB for that matter. winning at a 14-2 clip! The ravens lose in the playoffs, but its carried like Lamar lost by himself, what the media failed to mention is that the odds are against any team who cant stop the run. The titans ran all over the baltimore ravens defense, the receivers had drops like htey always do in big games, amnd lamar forced two balls for pics. Guessed what the media focused on, just the interceptions. Last time I checked many play off games and superbowls have been one with a QB not having to be perfect. You dont have to look no further than Peyton Manning, Brady, or John Elway.. TEAMS win superbowls not Quarterbacks. But in Lamar’s case when he wins he gets nit picked to death lol and win he loses its ALL his fault. No other QB except Brady in New England would be able to win at this clip with everything falling apart around him. The Ravens should be 3-6 right now. They have lost their best two line men, lost 3 secondary DB’s, lost their best tightend, yes Boyle is better than Andrews in my eyes all things considered, Lamar’s center plays as if he took a bribe lol, and he is still 6-3 with the defenses practically knowing their every play. If we are being honest we know its soley because they have Lamar Jackson that they have a contending record.. Put this in consideration, Tom Brady and Lamar Jackson are both 6-3, but the standards are set so high for Lamar they make you feel like he hasn’t won a game all year.

    If the Ravens get rolling they will WIN THE SUPERBOWL! The have already gone through playoff adversity all year.
