Many expected Sunday night’s trip to Baltimore to be the Patriots’ first real test of the season and the Ravens certainly proved a worthy opponent sending Bill Belichick’s team home with its first loss of the year to the tune of 37-20.
Baltimore drove the ball down the Patriots’ throat early to take a 17-0 lead, but a pair of Ravens’ turnovers helped New England climb back into the game to pull within 17-13 by halftime.
The Ravens extended the lead early in the third quarter when a Patriots drive was stopped by a Julian Edelman fumble that was returned 70 yards for a touchdown by Marlon Humphrey.
Tom Brady and Co. quickly answered that score with an up-tempo 11-play, 75-yard drive to a James White 1-yard touchdown run to make the game 24-20 midway through the third quarter.
But Lamar Jackson led the home team to touchdowns on drives of 72 and 62 yards in the fourth quarter to pull away for the impressive win.
Before turning the page to the bye week with an 8-1 record, here are the personnel highs and lows from the beatdown in Baltimore.
