Lamar Jackson punches in 7-yard TD to cap 75-yard drive vs. Lions

BALTIMORE — Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens got off to a fast start Sunday, looking nothing like the offense from last week in London.

On Sunday, Jackson ran untouched for a seven-yard touchdown to cap a 75-yard opening drive and give the Ravens a 7-0 lead over the Detroit Lions.

All week, Baltimore heard about its struggles in the red zone, where the team went 1-of-6 last week. In the Ravens’ first home game in a month, Jackson helped punch the ball in on their first trip inside the 20-yard line.

This was Jackson’s fifth rushing touchdown this season — all in the red zone. His five rushing touchdowns inside the 20-yard line are tied with Jalen Hurts for the most by an NFL quarterback this season.

The key play of the opening drive was Jackson’s 46-yard pass to Zay Flowers. It’s the second-longest pass completion of the season for Jackson, who connected on a 52-yarder with Flowers in Week 2.
