Lamar Jackson’s strong reaction to Ravens’ loss vs. Patriots
The Baltimore Ravens suffered a big loss on Sunday night against the New England Patriots, and their MVP isn’t taking it lightly. Lamar Jackson, who was obviously bothered by the 23-17 defeat against the Pats, spoke to the media after the tough match and was visibly frustrated.
“We’re ticked off. You know, don’t nobody like losing,” Lamar Jackson said, per the Ravens’ Twitter account. “Especially when we got a lot of talent in our team. We just got to regroup. Tuesday, we’re going to watch film on Tennessee and we’re going to build from there.”

It was indeed a frustrating night for the Ravens, as they were dealt their first away loss of the season. Jackson put his team up early in the second quarter with a toss to Willie Snead IV, but the home squad quickly came back and had the visitors playing catch up on a wet Sunday evening in Boston. In the end, it was Bill Belichick and the Patriots who came out on top.
Jackson, who led his team to an incredible 14-2 season last year, hasn’t been quite the MVP he was. Halfway through this campaign, the QB’s percentages are down and he would need to quickly pick up the pace if wants a chance to repeat last year’s amazing run. Same goes for the Ravens who are now 6-3 and have been struggling to catch up to current leaders of the AFC North–the 9-0 Pittsburgh Steelers.
You’d like to see more of this fire though from LJ. Hopefully for the Ravens, all this emotion translates in the field as they look to claw their way back to the post-season.
