Baltimore Ravens: 5 players who must be on point vs. Bills
By Peter Panacy
No. 1: Ravens Quarterback Lamar Jackson
Out of all the storylines developing between now and the divisional tilt, none will be greater than the matchup between two dynamic young quarterbacks, Josh Allen and Lamar Jackson.
Jackson tossed away the false narrative he wasn’t capable of winning games in the playoffs, particularly with his impressive 136-yard rushing effort against the Titans after tossing that first-quarter interception. Despite the slow start, Jackson ended up being perfectly calm within the pocket, also tossing for 179 yards while picking up those chunk yards on the ground when the opportunities presented themselves.

What’s most important for Jackson is getting over that playoff-win hump against a Titans team that upset Baltimore a year ago.
If there’s any such thing as momentum in the postseason, that victory provided it.
Sure, Baltimore will remain committed to the ground game as it looks to keep Allen and Co. off the field as much as possible. While Jackson figures into that equation, too, with his designed runs and taking advantage of broken plays, it’s refreshing to know he was able to make the key plays with his arm as well.
That’ll have to be another key attribute if the Ravens hope to advance past the Bills and into the AFC Championship game.
The Bills and Ravens kick off on Saturday, Jan. 16 at 8:15 p.m.
