In a game with notable player absences on both teams, the Baltimore Ravens (3-1) did everything (literally) on their way to earn a 28-3 win over the Cleveland Browns (2-2).

Baltimore entered the game without many starters available (not that you didn't know...) while the Browns missed just two but their most important ones: QB Deshaun Watson and RB Nick Chubb (arguably their absolute best performer).

And the Elves could do nothing under that duress.

Lamar Jackson's extraordinary performance proved to be a game-changer, he made history by throwing two touchdowns and rushing for two more, something he had never done before, and that's all the Ravens needed to put the Browns to sleep.

The win also marked Ravens head coach John Harbaugh's 150th career victory, highlighting the team's ability to defeat whoever is in front of them, including the self-called "no. 1 defense in the NFL." So much for that.

Here are the most important talking points following Baltimore's trouncing of the Browns at the Dawg Pound, which they might want to rebrand the Puppy Pound after falling 28-3 to their much stronger divisional foes.
