Chargers vs Ravens Preview
These teams faced off two weeks earlier in Los Angeles. Baltimore’s defense dominated en route to a 22-10 victory, holding the Chargers to 51 yards on the ground and 147 yards through the air.
Los Angeles quarterback Philip Rivers threw a pair of picks with no touchdowns, completing 23 of 37 passes for 181 yards. He drew four sacks, losing 34 yards.
That first pick came on the first play from scrimmage, setting up a Ravens field goal.
“We got off to a terrible start, turning the ball over on the first play,” Rivers said after the loss, according to the Associated Press. “And we had three third-down conversions called back really that we couldn’t overcome. We got ourselves in third-and-super-long a lot. It’s a good defense and they outplayed us today. Depending on what happens we may get another crack at them in two weeks.”
In his sixth career start, Ravens rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson went 12-of-22 for 204 yards, a touchdown, and no interceptions. He rushed 13 times for 39 yards; it’s the only time he rushed for fewer than 67 yards in a start this season.
“I’m used to playing on big stages and people doubting us. I try to prove them wrong,” Jackson said, per AP. “We can play with anyone. That was a great team. We can fight and everyone sees it now.”
The rookie led his team to a victory over the Cleveland Browns a week later to win the AFC North. They went 6-1 since he was thrust into the starting job following an injury to Joe Flacco.
In those seven games, the team rushed for 1,607 yards, the most in a team’s final seven games of a season since 1976. Jackson rushed for 556 of those yards.
“I don’t know if we can put Lamar Jackson in this rare air, but when Michael Jordan was playing, everybody knew he was going to shoot the fadeaway,” Ravens backup quarterback Robert Griffin III said, according to ESPN. “But they still had to stop it. Even if you know it’s coming, you still have to tackle, you still have to make plays on the field. That’s the mindset we have.
“When your talent is supposed to show, it’ll show, just like when Michael was out there backing guys down and shooting the fadeaway. Sometimes, it’s hard to stop.”
Stopping the Ravens’ ground game will be key for a Chargers defense that surrendered 1,693 rushing yards this season, the ninth-fewest in the NFL.
“They’re going to run it right at us,” said Chargers safety Derwin James, according to ESPN. “We know that, and we have to be ready to play, ready to get off blocks.”
