NFL Power Rankings Week 8: QB change sparks Titans to win
8. Baltimore Ravens (5-2)
Recap: Lamar Jackson struggled through the air, but the Baltimore Ravens’ second-year pro was once again able to depend on his legs — and his defense — to carry his team to victory in a road game against the Seattle Seahawks. With the game tied going into the second half, the Ravens scored 17 unanswered points, with the dagger being a Marlon Humphrey fumble recovery for a touchdown late in the fourth quarter.
Outlook: The Ravens continue to find ways to win this season, as Jackson continues to show he’s one of the most dynamic players in the NFL with his ability to beat opponents in multiple ways. With this win over a quality opponent, the Ravens strengthen their hold atop the AFC North while the rest of the division continues to falter. We’re really going to see what Jackson and his teammates are made of when they host the Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots in Week 9 after Baltimore enjoys a bye week.
