White Earl Thomas Jersey
The tables were turned on Philip Rivers and the Los Angeles Chargers‘ offense.Instead of controlling the clock White Earl Thomas Jersey , avoiding mistakes and putting the pressure on the Baltimore Ravens‘ run-heavy offense and rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson, it was Rivers who was left flustered and frustrated by a lack of opportunities and a series of self-inflicted errors when the Chargers seemed ready to turn things around.Penalties at critical moments, turnovers and an inability to sustain drives all popped up in the Chargers’ 22-10 loss to the Ravens on Saturday night. For all those reasons, Rivers was left to praise Baltimore’s dominant pass rush and lament his own team’s gaffes.“I thought we could have a lot more success than we did, but I thought it could be this kind of back-and-forth December, January type game against a physical, tough opponent. And it was,” Rivers said. “And we had opportunities there, a handful there at 16-10 and we didn’t get it done.”The Chargers finished with 198 yards of offense, the fourth-lowest output in Rivers’ 13 seasons as the team’s starting quarterback. Rivers was sacked four times Earl Thomas Jersey 2019 , and Los Angeles turned the ball over three times as its hopes of winning the AFC West were effectively ended.Kansas City can wrap up the division title and a first-round playoff bye with a win at Seattle on Sunday night, but Rivers said that was not as important as getting the offense back on track going into the playoffs.“One more game is added to the slate to win the whole thing and it won’t be here,” Rivers said. “That’s all that we know. Today is disappointing, but we can’t wallow in that disappointment very long.”What caught Rivers and the Chargers by surprise were unexpected struggles in pass protection. Coach Anthony Lynn said the Ravens “got after us pretty good up front.”That pressure resulted in Rivers completing 23 of 37 passes for 181 yards and two interceptions.It was the first time this season that Rivers did not throw a touchdown pass.Compounding matters were frequent penalties that kept the Chargers from extending drives, even when Rivers was given plenty of time. On the Chargers’ third possession, Keenan Allen had a 27-yard catch to the Ravens’ 24 on third down wiped out because of offensive pass interference. A 28-yard grab by Mike Williams on the next play was negated by an illegal shift, and the Ravens pressured Rivers into throwing the ball at the feet of running back Justin Jackson with a third chance to get off the field.Rivers admitted to frustration at seeing so many yellow flags, but said those penalties reflected the offense’s overall struggles in facing so many third downs.“You don’t want to just point to that, but that was part of us not executing as well as we can and need to,” Rivers said.The Chargers were 4 for 13 on third down White Ty Montgomery Jersey , with three conversions coming on a fourth-quarter drive that ended in a punt while trailing 16-10.When their defense held to give the Chargers another possession and chance to take the lead with 3 minutes remaining, tight end Antonio Gates was stripped by linebacker Patrick Onwuasor and cornerback Tavon Young returned the fumble 62 yards for a touchdown.“We just couldn’t sustain anything for the most part,” Rivers said. “Our only touchdown was on a short field, off a great play by our defense. Shoot, we just couldn’t get going, so that’s why I say credit to them.”Rivers understood the defeat likely sets up a playoff matchup against the winner of the AFC North in the Wild Card round, putting a possible rematch with Baltimore in play.But, ever the optimist, Rivers felt it was better to play poorly against the Ravens now and not with their season at stake.“If we were going to have one like this, better now than later Ty Montgomery Jersey 2019 ,” Rivers said. It’s a good defense and they outplayed us today. Depending on what happens, we may get another crack at them in two weeks.” OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Since taking over as the starting quarterback, rookie Lamar Jackson has revitalized the Baltimore Ravens running attack and kept opposing offenses off the field by dominating time of possession.He will need do that again this week to help slow down the high-flying Kansas City Chiefs, who lead the NFL with 37 points per game.“It will be very helpful if we could do that,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. “They score in a variety of ways very quickly so time of possession would be very helpful for us.”Jackson has emerged as a playmaker in place of Joe Flacco, who has been sidelined with a hip injury since Nov. 4. Flacco was not expected to be a full participant in practice on Wednesday, but Harbaugh said Flacco’s activity will be “ramped up” later this week.Until then Jackson is poised to make his fourth consecutive start. He has led Baltimore to three consecutive victories, but faces his biggest challenge this week in a raucous Arrowhead Stadium.“I just feel like those guys are going to have read my lips sometimes,” Jackson said about adjusting to the crowd noise. “I heard Kansas City can be very loud. I’m going to have to do my job and speak up.”Chiefs coach Andy Reid has been impressed by the young quarterback. Jackson will look to make plays against a Kansas City defense that is allowing 122 yards rushing per game.“He can run like a running back. He’s as fast as a receiver and he can throw like a son of a gun. That’s a good combination to have Womens Hayden Hurst Jersey ,” Reid said.The Ravens have run for more than 200 yards in each of the last three games and hold the sixth and final postseason spot in the AFC. Baltimore (7-5) also is within a half-game of the first-place Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC North.This upcoming game features the Ravens’ top-ranked defense against the Chief’s No. 1 offense. The players, however, are just focused on winning and not any statistics.“We’re a confident group and we feel that we can match up with anyone,” Ravenssafety Eric Weddle said. “With our scheme and the players we have, we should be able to go out and play great defense. Obviously, this offense is the best in the league. It’s going to be a challenge for us, but we’re up for it. We’re excited to go into a playoff-style game.”In Week 13, Baltimore held the ball for 39:39, compared to just 20:21 for Atlanta. The Falcons ran just 13 plays in the second half.That dominance helped the Ravens defense stay fresh and make big plays, especially in the fourth quarter. Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan threw for the fewest passing yards (131) in a game he played from beginning to end over his 11-year career.The Ravens left Atlanta with a 26-16 victory.Baltimore faces a tougher test this week against Kansas City (10-2) and quarterback Patrick Mahomes Hayden Hurst Jersey White , who has thrown for 3,923 yards with 41 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Mahomes has several key weapons at his disposal, including receiver Tyreek Hill (1,119 yards, 11 touchdowns) and tight end Travis Kelce (1,082 yards and nine TDs).Harbaugh and his players are looking forward to the opportunity to play against the best team in the AFC.“Kansas City is very loud. It’s a great environment,” Harbaugh said. “It’s one of those environments you love going into in this league. It’s what you do this job for. Yes, it’s an awesome place to play. It’ll be loud, they’ll be into it (if) their team is winning. This’ll be a big game. We’re looking forward to that. That’s something that you really kind of relish.”
