Lamar Jackson brushes against haunting narrative in Ravens-Titans playoff rematch

Raven's quarterback Lamar Jackson left Monday night's game against the Browns in the second half due to cramps. The Ravens announced his return was in doubt, but Jackson re-entered the game in the fourth quarter, leading Baltimore to 10 points in less than two minutes to give his team a wild 47:42 win.

Jackson went to the locker room in the third quarter and was out of the field early in the fourth quarter.

He was replaced by Trace McSorley, who ran once in his sophomore year and threw two imperfections (one was a drop) in a three-and-off on his first run. Cleveland QB Baker Mayfield scored a quick touchdown on the following run to give the Browns a point lead.

McSorley had to leave the game on his second trip after a leg injury. Jackson had just returned to the field and was coming back in. He looked fit as he rolled right and threw to a wide-open Marquise Brown who sped past the Cleveland defense with a touchdown of 44 yards remaining, 1:51. Baltimore added a 2 point conversion to take a 42-35 lead.

Jackson saved Baltimore (8-5) in a win that held it in the middle of the AFC wildcard race. He rushed nine times for 124 yards and two touchdowns while completing 11 of 17 passes for 163 yards.

He was playing in his second game since being activated from the Ravens reserve / COVID-19 list.
