It wasn’t looking ideal for the Baltimore Ravens versus the Minnesota Vikings, but despite being down 24-10 at one point, Lamar Jackson made one of the best plays of his career when the team needed him most.

This throw and catch to Devin Duvernay ignited another comeback overtime victory for Lamar Jackson and the Ravens this season.

In the process, the former Louisville Cardinal tied another former NFL great’s record with his 10th career 100-yard rushing game at the quarterback position.

With all due respect, the narrative of scoring early on Baltimore and Jackson can’t lead them to victory should officially be buried. In addition to the second home comeback victory of 2021, he is a player that continuously keeps adding to his illustrious NFL resume.

Justin Tucker keeps coming through in the clutch time after time again for the Ravens

While the Ravens’ quarterback is playing at an MVP level, their kicker continues to shine. Justin Tucker impacted Minnesota Vikings’ head coach Mike Zimmer’s decision not to attempt a two-point conversion late in the fourth quarter.

It’s not often you hear coach’s decisions of that magnitude being affected by a kicker, but when you have Tucker in your pocket to win the game. He will consistently deliver. Justin hit his 53rd consecutive field goal in the fourth quarter and overtime to win the game for the Ravens.

The 10th year NFL veteran’s impact and meaning to the team cannot be valued enough considering the rough day they had on both sides of the football at times.

In addition to him, Baltimore had a few other offensive players that performed at a high level on Sunday.
