Lamar Jackson still not sure how Ravens lost to Titans in playoffs
When the Baltimore Ravens were upset by the Tennessee Titans in the postseason, everyone was shocked to see the No. 1 seed get sent home. Just like everyone else, Lamar Jackson is still not sure how Baltimore lost to the Titans in the playoffs.
“I [still am] puzzled, like, just looking at highlights and stuff,” the Ravens star told Alex Marvez and Gil Brandt of SiriusXM NFL Radio at the 101 Awards in Kansas City last weekend. “I’m like, ‘I don’t know what happened.’ Like, we had good plays. We had good drives. We’ll hit a hump one play. They steal the momentum, and it’s, you know, the NFL is like a momentum game. Like, whoever’s got momentum, they’re going to score points. They might come out with a victory, and that’s what it was. We was flat the whole night. That game was not on our defense. I feel like we just didn’t execute on offense. [If] we put more points up, it’d be a great game.”
Of course, the Ravens went into the game as heavy favorites due to being the No. 1 seed in the AFC. On the other hand, the Titans were a team that snuck into the playoffs with Ryan Tannehill as their quarterback.
Despite Jackson totaling 508 yards in the game, the Ravens made a few crucial mistakes in the game. As Jackson pointed out, games in the NFL are contingent on momentum. Without a doubt, Tennessee was able to seize the momentum early and never looked back.
With the Ravens losing, some people were critical of Jackson and his inability to improve his play in the biggest moments.
However, he owns up to his faults and it seems like the loss to the Titans will stick with him for quite some time.
