OWINGS MILLS, Md. — In a week so challenging that it had Lamar Jackson believing that the paranormal was involved, the Baltimore Ravens delivered a victory that many around the NFL won’t remember but those within this locker room certainly will.
Baltimore’s 24-10 victory Sunday in Indianapolis doesn’t rank as a statement game. Instead of making some grand declaration to the rest of the league, this was more about the Ravens proving what they had inside.
• Inside Belichick’s forgotten 2000 season
• How did Jets’ Becton come so far so fast?
• Week 9 takeaways: Chiefs avoid upset
• Saints make statement against Bucs
• Brady struggles, throws 3 INTs in loss
The word that Ravens coach John Harbaugh used after the game to his team — and which he borrowed from general manager Eric DeCosta — was fortitude.
“I’m going to look that up shortly here,” Harbaugh joked.
There weren’t many smiles heading into this game. In fact, it’s hard to remember when Baltimore had ever faced so much adversity in a week.
Lamar Jackson overcame a slow start to Sunday’s game and ended up matching Dan Marino with most wins (25)
