Ravens QB Lamar Jackson puts on a show with impressive run

The Baltimore Ravens came into Tennessee and dominated the home team in a dominating performance all game long. The Ravens entered Sunday boasting one of the top defensive units in the league, allowing the third-fewest total yards per game, fourth-fewest pass yards allowed and fifth-fewest rushing yards allowed, while averaging the sixth-most sacks per game. The Ravens got back to back sacks on Marcus Mariota and forced a punt. The Ravens couldn't have looked much better handing Tennessee its first shutout since November 28, 2010. Crabtree had a rebound game, and he was instrumental in the first scoring drive.

The second quarter offered much of the same.

Smith said the Ravens didn't know how many sacks they had until tying the team record of nine and were told they could break the record set November 24, 2011, against San Francisco. That's right, the Ravens defense took Mariota down six times in thirty minutes of football. Alex Collins scored on TD runs of 13 and 2 yards. That was one of the best runs the Ravens have had this season in all honesty.

Flacco lined up as a wide receiver and even though the Titans were not going to get fooled into thinking that the quarterback will be a receiver on that play, especially with that kind of pre-snap stance, Tennessee still failed to stop Jackson from uncorking a 22-yard run. The Ravens converted 12 of 17 third downs, not counting another off a Titans penalty.

The Ravens beat Tennessee, 21-0, and will be preparing for a match at home against the New Orleans Saints next Sunday. When Collins scored his second touchdown of the game it was halfway through the third quarter and it looked like that was enough points for the win.
