The Ravens used a punishing drive to take a late lead over the Chiefs.

On the 14th play of the possession, quarterback Lamar Jackson kept an option play, ran to the right, and flipped into the end zone to give Baltimore a 36-35 advantage. But Baltimore’s two-point conversion attempt failed when Jackson’s pass to receiver Marquise Brown fell incomplete.

The Ravens are now up to 247 yards rushing, averaging 6.7 yards on 37 attempts. Jackson is leading the way, with 103 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 12 carries.

Of the 14 plays on Baltimore’s scoring drive, 11 were runs.

The Chiefs have three timeouts remaining. Baltimore has just one.

  1. K.C. should CUT Edwards-Helaire. Cost them the game, might cost them division & playoffs. Can’t have that.

  2. Never seen so many Chief fans crying over one game, I’m a Broncos fan, but c’mon… you guys have this division and conference in the bag. Quit complaining.

  3. Not gonna lie. I thought the Chiefs were going to destroy my Ravens. Instead Lamar finally beats Patrick. What a difference a week can make.

  4. Give credit where credit is due: Lamar had some nice runs. And the Ravens’ D played tough down the stretch. That being said, the Chiefs D is atrocious. Although that penalty against Mathieu was one of the all time worst calls at a key point in the game and ultimately it cost them the game. Yes, the Helaire funble was brutal and also cost them the game… but that Mathieu penalty negated a big sack on Lamar and it would have been 3rd and way long and as Lamar continues to prove, he can’t make any long throw in any key situation so that would have been ball game.
