The Baltimore Ravens took down the New York Jets and clinched their second consecutive AFC North Championship. Here is the good, the bad and the ugly:

The Good:

The Baltimore Ravens were able to put the ball in the end zone and it was the difference in the game. Both teams had chances to make things happen and the Ravens took advantage of more of them. Lamar Jackson had five scores through the air. Jackson was fun to watch in this game which is exactly what you expect from him at this point. Jackson broke Michael Vick‘s record for the most rushing yards in a season by a quarterback. This has been a magical season and now Jackson has a nice piece of history. Jackson tied Vinny Testaverde‘s franchise record for touchdowns in a season. Jackson now has 33 passing touchdowns in 2019.

Hayden Hurst got things off to a strong start with a tough catch in traffic and a 19 yard gain. Marquise Brown got back into the action as he scored on a 24 yard reception in the third quarter. The Ravens took a chance late in the third quarter with a fourth down attempt on from their own 29 yard line. Jackson rolled out and found Mark Andrews for a 36 yards. A few plays later, Seth Roberts caught a beautiful 33 yard strike from Jackson. Mark Ingram II, Gus Edwards and Justice Hill all chipped in to a great game by the backfield.

The Ravens ran away with this game in the second half and Robert Griffin III was able to come in to finish the game. Most of the defensive breakdowns from the first half were fixed in the final 30 minutes of the game. The Ravens ran for over 200 yards and got their 10th straight win. Baltimore put up 431 total yards of offense.
