Lamar Jackson ran for 43 yards on nine carries and completed 27 of 38 passes for 238 yards and two touchdowns. He threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Kenyan Drake and a 10-yarder to Isaiah Likely, who had six catches for 77 yards.

Five Ravens rushed for at least 28 yards, led by Gus Edwards, who had 11 carries for 65 yards before leaving with a hamstring injury.

The Bucs scored a late touchdown, with Tom Brady throwing an 8-yard touchdown pass to Julio Jones with 49 seconds left. Rachaad White was stopped short of the goal line on the 2-point try, and Likely recovered the onside kick.

Brady completed 26 of 44 passes for 325 yards and a touchdown, his first touchdown pass since the fourth quarter of Week 6. The Bucs lost to the Panthers 21-3 in Week 7.

Mike Evans caught six passes for 123 yards.

  1. What’s laughable is the lack of block in the back calls on the Ravens just about every time they do a big run. As bad as the Bucs were in the second half I cannot help but notice the Ravens getting away with murder every time they would do a run play. This is two weeks in a row where the refs ignore the Ravens constantly jumping offsides or blocks in the back on their running plays.

  2. Bucs lucky their division is probably going to be winnable at .500 or close to it, only reason they aren’t roast already

  3. If the Ravens run the ball they most likely win but for some inexplicable reason the great Greg Roman is forcing Lamar to throw throw throw

  4. That Bucs run defense is beyond terrible.

    The announcers were really carrying water for Tom Brady not calling his inaccurate balls what they were. It’s late October and one guy said it’s like pre -season. Brady is cooked and left his family for this? Say they make the playoffs as a 6 win team only to get destroyed by the Eagles.

  5. Sad to see Brady gave up his family for this. Don’t even like the guy on a personal level, but he’s still the GOAT and he’s fizzling his career out like this. Should have stayed retired. Nothing left to prove.

  6. The escalation point on Toms Career would have been to retire after the Super Bowl Win with the Bucs…….this is just a sloppy mess at this point.

  7. As glad as I am every time the Bucs (and Brady) lose the reality is they are in the worst division in football they WILL make the playoffs.

    And as much as I don’t think Brady was all that great a QB (I will give him credit for being very football smart) and it was more of the right combo of coach and QB with pretty stupid opponents (I could have coached both Atlanta and Seattle to SB wins given the situations they blew and the Jets and Bills spend 2 decades doing about every thing wrong you could do in running a team) it is kind of sad that:

    1) Tom’s ego made him forget he is mortal and honestly his WORST personal traits are showing thru more and more.
    2) He’d apparently sacrifice his family to a stupid game (which I played into my 40s so I understand the attraction).

    We all want to look back and bask in our successes ….. maybe we should reflect a little more on the present cost of that “success”?

  8. Going to let his marriage implode for this? The Bucs look horrible. What is up with Mike Evans? It’s all going south in a hurry. Give it up,Tom.

  9. This season is Brady’s chance to ensure the Bucs get a new QB with a top 5 pick. It’s that or the Bucs call Denver and swap anything/anyone for Wilson (I’m pretty sure Bronco fans would be happy with a 6th rounder in return.)

  10. Don’t count our Tom Brady, but there’s still lots of work to be done for them to salvage this season.

  11. Saints will probably end up winning the South if they get healthy and solve their turnovers issue.

  12. I love patriots fans on here crying about calls against Tampa. Seems like since they see how much a dumpster fire the pats are, they are moving on to root for Tawmmy’s team…but they’re a disaster too! Enjoy being behind the jets & bills for the next 5+ years bahaha

  13. Nice game plan, throw to set up the run. Brady threw more balls in the dirt than McNabb on a bad day.

    So true, but sadly, Tom can’t get enough. Risking family and health. He literally could had left the game not knowing what it feels like to be a loser. Right now, every Ohio State QB who played in the NFL is saying to Tom, “how does it feel to be me”?

  15. Of course there were more Ravens’ fans in the stands than Bucs fans. For 1, Tampa fans are the most ‘fair weather fans’ of all time. 2. Who wouldn’t want to escape Baltimore 🤮 for beautiful Florida? 😂😂

  16. First prime game ive watched. My takeaways. Kirk and AL don’t gel, kirk is quite boring cause he’s so monotone. The broadcast team is cringy at best like the Amazon lord of the rings show.

  17. He should have stayed retired. Go home now Tom and try and save your family. He’s done as can be and fire everybody the players the coaches alll of them!! Buc’s stink.

  18. Brady never pulled the vanishing quarterback routine playing for Bill….Bill would never have stood for all the absences Brady is demanding… Brady was treated,by Bill, as just another player in NE, but in Tampa he considered as a god…i will open up the debate whether Bill misses Brady or Brady misses Bill or neither…

  19. This game should not have been close.
    It’s simply baffling that at one point the Ravens had thrown the ball 32 times and rushed only 7. That they were only down 10-3, allowed them to refocus to their run game, and punish the turrible Tampa rush defence with chunk play after chunk play. Going 26/6 run/pass the rest of the way was what they should have been doing the entire game.
    If the Bucs weren’t in free fall, Harbaugh and Roman would ‘outsmarted’ themselves into a loss.

  20. With Amazon, Thursday Night Football has faded away, and I don’t miss it one bit.

  21. Is it just me or is Lamar Jackson’s price tag continuing to go up? Ravens maybe didn’t make the right bet on this one, and now you risk upsetting the face of your franchise.

  22. Tommy is old and confused. He can’t read and get rid of the ball as fast as he did in the past.

    Yeah is line is bad but he doesn’t get rid of the ball fast anymore

  23. Also, where are all the “Lamar is overrated” people? 24 points in the 2nd half without 3 of his top players, eh? Not bad, Lamar. I hope he ends up with one of the Florida teams next season, Baltimore does not deserve to keep him having failed to get something done contractually, I don’t care if he is his own representation

    Tommy looks just like he did in 2019 in NE. Unwatchable. It’s clear as day that the team would be no better than they are today if Tommy stuck around.

    But the fan club gives Tommy and his 88 passer rating that season all the credit for those 12 wins lololololol

  25. Luckily Tampa isn’t coached by Hackett so no stories about how the first year coach should already be fired….even though they both have 5 losses….and Tampa is a recent SB winner….with the best QB in history. Funny how the guy with a brand new QB, staff and scheme who inherited a team with 12 combined wins in the last 2 seasons should have been fired a couple weeks ago but the guy with the best QB ever, a holdover staff from last year, and the same scheme gets a total pass.

  26. With Amazon, Thursday Night Football has faded away, and I don’t miss it one bit

    Which is of course why you’re talking about it on the internet the next morning.

    I don’t get all this streaming hate. You pay for the games whether you have cable or stream. Last I checked a basic cable bill was $50-60 a month. Now if you could get games on rabbit ears like the old days it would be different, but I don’t know if that’s a thing anymore? It’s not an option where I live so I can pay Spectrum or I can pay Amazon. Since Amazon is $8 a month and I use prime daily for shopping anyway it’s a no brainer. Plus I can watch it on any TV vs one that has to be near a coaxle.

  27. It’s always sad to watch one of the all-time greats fall apart in front of you.

    I remember when Jim Brown retired – 1966. He was in London making ‘The Dirty Dozen’ and it was time for camp and he just decided – no. If memory serves one of the reasons he gave was so he could “hang out with the Beatles and the Stones”. (The Beatles were an English Rock group in the 60s). Of course that was 56 years ago and since then I have become an old coot, so it is entirely possible that I made up that last part.

    BUT – He went out ON TOP.

    9 seasons, 8 of them 1,000 yard seasons in a time when the seasons were 12 games. Over his career he AVERAGED 5.2 yards per carry, and he was the baddest m-f you ever saw. When he would score a TD he would merely hand the ball to the ref and trot to the sidelines, the message being clear – I’ll be back. Of course those were the days when hot dogs were sold in the stands, and not allowed on the field.

  28. What about those 7 seasons with a 100+ rating? Still Brady had nothing to do with the team’s success?
