Lamar Jackson with another terrible playoff performance. He was awful last year in his first playoff game but might be having a worse game today. Come on now. The first INT hit the best catcher on the team in both hands and he just let it go right through. Impossible to blame that one on Jackson. That is one of a handful of drops by the receivers (including the one on the last drive that was an easy TD - which is the 6th drop). Apparently only the balls Brady's receivers drops matter. Both 4th in 1's, the Titans just blew up the offensive line. He can't run through people. He also had 143 yards rushing and over 300 yards passing. And for the record, the CBS official, as well as both announcers, said the horse collar wasn't in fact a horse collar and shouldn't have been a penalty.
Jackson with 2 INTs, 1 fumble lost on a strip sack, 3 sacks, 2 4th and 1's where he lost yardage keeping the ball both times, multiple inaccurate throws and a terrible penalty where he could have seriously hurt that guy with that horse tackle/helmet hold and fling tackle.
Hard to win when your receivers drop balls and you let the opposing RB go for 200 yards.
1 lost fumble...strip sack fumble.
-1 yards rushing combined on 2 4th and 1's.
0-1 passing in another 4th down.
If it wasn't a horse tackle then it was a personal foul, unnecessary roughness penalty for the grab of the back of the helmet and tossing the guy. Either way, bad dangerous penalty.
Inaccurate passing today just 52% completion.
Tons of empty stats.
Multiple chokes at crucial moments.
Biggest upset in NFL since Giants beating Patriots in 2007.
I'm not saying it was a good game, it wasn't, but 6 WR drops change those passing stats a great deal, especially the first one by Andrews that was picked off. If Andrews catches the ball, the entire complexion of the game is different. Baltimore is getting at least 3 on that possession (they were already in FG range) if not going in for a TD and puts Tennessee behind instead of the game staying tied and them going in for a TD on a 35 yard drive.
And you can do the stats the other way also.
365 passing yards with a TD and 6 WR drops which would have led to a lot more
143 rushing yards (7.2 yards per attempt)
With Ingram clearly hurt the Ravens accumulated 530 yards of offense and 5.8 yards per play
At the end of the day, the Titans dominated the line of scrimmage, both defensively and offensively. That is ultimately what won them the game and that isn't on Jackson. That is also what led them to victory against the Patriots as well. They have just controlled the line of scrimmage the last two playoff games (and frankly their last 7 or so games overall).
