Baltimore Ravens in scintillating form as they maintain best start since 2012

Baltimore Ravens in scintillating form as they maintain best start since 2012 At the LA-Memorial Coliseum, the Baltimore Ravens knocked the Los Angeles Rams with a 45-6 destruction to continue on the road to win the Super Bowl.

The Ravens jumped to 28-3 leads and did not stop there by scoring two more touchdowns and finished with 45-6 points in the second half of the match. Baltimore is NFL’s only team that has touchdowns on its first four possessions to start a match. Twice they’ve done it.

All but invincible was Lamar Jackson. The quarterback of Ravens finished on 15-20 passes with five TDs. He had only 169 yards in the air and everything he wanted since he also had 8 carriages for 95 yards. Jackson’s threat also opened the game–the Ravens ended at 285 yards with 5 rushers, headed by Mark Ingram, 111 yards.

Raven’s head coach Harbaugh stated after the match that Jackson’s performance clearly showed that he is gradually becoming a force to reckon with in his position as his star player proved pivotal in another important win for his team.

The Ravens derided the patriots 37-20 in New England a month ago. The Ravens beat Los Angeles Rams 45-6 on Monday evening. They are NFL’s first team to beat the two conference champions by three points in the same season.

Lamar Jackson is currently on fire

This win is the seventh victory for the Ravens as they seek to win another Super Bowl. Jackson starred in the victory as he completed five touchdown passes with his effort seeing him complete 2,427 passing yards for a joint-first 24 passing touchdowns and a quarterback rating of 111.4 thus far in the season.

He leads the league quarterbacks with a league-high average of 7.1 yards per carrying, with six touchdowns and 876 yards in rushing figures.

Aaron Donald, a worldwide Rams, was the invisible man on Monday, doing everything defensively. The Raven walled Donald in the way of protection and routinely scattered the Rams on the floor. The LA Rams under Aaron Donald are noted for their defensive solidity, having one of the best defensive starts in the league but were left embarrassed as the Ravens, who have outscored their strutted to a fairly routine win.

The results mean that the Rams have failed to record touchdown for the second time in three games, while their forward line had just 111 yards in the first three quarters before finishing with 221, a paltry sum from their once-prolific offense.

The Baltimore Ravens, however, take on San Francisco 49ers (10-1) at M&T Bank Stadium this Sunday before taking a trip to Buffalo (8-3) in Week 14.

The 49ers are carrying one of George Kittle’s most dangerous counter weapons, and I believe that they should use Marlon Humphrey as their cornerback cover. Humphrey is the most balanced defender of the Ravens, and he has the fiery matching results. Kittle is the 49er’s greatest attacking machine. Humphrey is one of the only Ravens defensive players able to keep up with the speed and size of Kittle.

I always maintain that Humphrey is the man to work for with stars like Chuck Clark, Earl Thomas III, and Jimmy Smith in the secondary. I presume that if Wink Martindale goes with Humphrey and Kittle, then Marcus Peters would be on Emmanuel Sanders and Jimmy Smith with Deebo Samuel.

Marlon Humphrey has had a wonderful season, one of the finest in the NFL cornerbacks, but since Peters came in Baltimore, he has been a little overshaded by Marcus Peters. Whether Humphrey will stop Kittle, he will have a long way to send him to the first pro bowl and to gain the mainstream attention he deserves. It’s a great match and could even be a taste for Super Bowl, so the emphasis is on Ravens Defense and, above all, on Marlon Humphrey.
