Bills vs. Ravens score, result: Buffalo shuts down Lamar Jackson to reach AFC championship

Lamar Jackson spent the final quarter of his season in the Ravens locker room under the guidance of medical staff, likely watching Buffalo end their 17-3 divisional playoff win over his team on a TV at Bills Stadium.

He was kicked out of the game when his head hit the turf at the end of a broken game in the final seconds of the third period. He'd thrown a 101-yard pick-six just two snapshots earlier.

The bills kept Baltimore at its lowest level since 2009 and disrupted journeys with pressure in the backfield and stable coverage. But the ravens also injured themselves in a variety of ways. Jackson was injured after his center failed in competition for the third time. When he picked up the loose ball, he lost his balance while throwing and could not cushion his fall. Its recipients struggled to hold on to passports. His offensive linemen have committed too many penalties. His kicker hit two field goal attempts from the post. And his own pocket readings were often miserable.

Buffalo, while not exactly astute, lived on a noisy crowd with limited capacity to benefit from Baltimore's struggles. Josh Allen was 23 of 37 and only walked 206 yards, but he didn't flip the ball. Defending the Bills allowed for long drives, but the group buckled when they were in their territory.

As a result, Allen will lead the franchise to its first appearance in the AFC championship since the 1993 season. Jackson, who has departed to fewer than 200 all-purpose yards, will have to wait at least another year to bring his city the Super Bowl trophy he promised on his draft night.

Sporting News followed the entire action and provided live commentary and highlights. Follow below for one more look at how Buffalo rose to the AFC title game where he'll meet the Chiefs vs. Browns winner.

Bills vs. Ravens Live Updates, Highlights

Finale: Bills 17, Ravens 3

11:14 pm: A run in the punter call against the Ravens officially ends it. The bills can kneel the rest of the time.

11:11 pm: Two minute warning. The bills are about to kick the ball back.

11:07 pm: A pass from Mark Andrews for the fourth hit is canceled. Buffalo takes ownership.

11:03 pm: The ravens are just outside the red zone. But at 3:12 it still looks bleak.

10:57 pm: Not good. Bass misses from 44 yards. Baltimore gets the ball back at 5:40.

10:50 pm: Oh man. Huntley had Brown wide open in fourth and eighth places behind secondary school. Perfection would have given life to the ravens. It's probably over now.

10:48 pm: Jackson was excluded, according to the team.

10:43 pm: The bills stuck the ravens within the 10 with a boat.

10:40 p.m .: Diggs is over 100 yards for playing with back-to-back catches.

10:38 pm: The ravens sting. Jackson is now on the concussion log.

End of the third quarter: invoices 17, ravens 3

10:34 pm: Jackson is in the locker room. He was replaced by Tyler Huntley.

10:31 pm: There is a lot to unzip there. Snap passed Jackson, who panicked trying to throw the ball away as it fell backwards into the end zone. He's been tagged for intentional grounding, but the bigger concern is that Jackson will stay down.

10:30 pm: Jackson is hurt.

10:23 p.m .: TOUCHDOWN, invoices. Yes, bills. That's a 101-yard interception return from Taron Johnson. 17-3, Buffalo.

10:21 pm: Dobbins pushes onto the 10-yard line as the Ravens' long journey continues. Baltimore has caught the ball 11 times, which is what Buffalo did earlier in the quarter.

10:17 pm: Jackson breaks off a long run in third and 13th place and surprised the bills.

10:08 p.m .: TOUCHDOWN, bills. Diggs uses his speed to snake his way into the end zone from a quick snap and throw action. This is his sixth catch of the night. 10-3, Buffalo.

10:07 pm: Singletary then shows its hands with a reception within the 5th

10:05 pm: Bills Run Back Devin Singletary, who has been calm so far, pushes the pile into the red zone.

22 O `clock: The second half is underway. Bills start with a solid return from Andre Roberts.

Half time: bills 3, ravens 3

9.45 p.m .: FIELD ZIEL, Ravens. Tucker barely avoids hitting the post a third time. His successful kick results in a tie in half. 3-3.

9:39 pm: Jackson to Brown for 30 yards. It looks like Tucker is going to make a field goal attempt before half time.

9:34 pm: Buffalo can't build on the Diggs game and hits in half with 1:15.

9:31 pm: Diggs makes a 19-yard catch on third-and-3.

9:27 pm: Two minute warning.

9:25 pm: Buffalo punted the ball back at 3:07 in the half.

9:22 pm: Jackson can still move the chains! He makes a risky but effective throw down the middle to Hollywood Brown.

9:20 pm: Now Baltimore's offensive line is punished again and again. It's runner-up and 28 in the Ravens' own 10.

9:18 pm: Jackson takes another long sack. This time he goes 9 meters behind the line.

9:14 pm: Everyone fiddles with the ball, but one of his linemen falls on it. Nevertheless, the bills are forced to sting.

9:12 pm: The duality of all is just fully visible. He makes a crazy pass to Brown after tripping way over the border, but at the next game he has another head-scratching fall.

9:06 pm: Missed the post again! Tucker hits the yellow post on a 46 yard field goal attempt, the second time he has done so tonight.

9:04 pm: Dobbins, who previously had a costly fall, breaks into the Buffalo area by sneaking out of the background and making himself available to Jackson to find him.

21 clock: Not good. Bill's kicker Tyler Bass misses from 43 yards.

8:58 pm: Allen comes back to John Brown with a great throw who keeps both feet in play long enough to secure a 21-yard reception.

End of the first quarter: bills 3, ravens 0

8:53 pm: Allen falls Diggs, who opens deep on the sidelines.

8:52 pm: The ravens sting again. You have gained a total of six meters in the last two runs.

8:45 p.m .: FELDZIEL, invoices. Not a satisfactory end to this drive for Buffalo given his starting position and Davis's decline, but that kick is still enough for an early lead. 3-0, Buffalo.

8:44 pm: Gabriel Davis drops a possible touchdown pass to third place.

8:42 pm: Allen sells a roughing of the passerby and gets what he's looking for. First-and-10 for Buffalo on the 11-yard line from Baltimore following the flag.

8:38 pm: The Bills will have a great field position after a terrible jump-off of just 23 meters.

8:37 pm: J.K. Dobbins drops a third pass that would have moved the chains slightly. Now the ravens are stinging.

8:34 pm: Buffalo tells everyone to throw deep, but his pass goes 10 meters lower than his intended target. Punt comes up.

8:31 pm: The Bills are taking some time off to think about what they'll run out of midfield in third and sixth place. They'd love to keep their defense on the sidelines after Baltimore's last drive took more than seven minutes.

8:25 pm: Not good! The sack keeps Baltimore from threatening to move the chains and kicker Justin Tucker knocks off his 41-yard field goal attempt to the left of the post.

8:24 pm: Jackson takes down an 11 yard sack first.

8:22 pm: Ravens do it in fourth and first place and get crammed. But an offside call against the Bills brings an automatic first down that negates a great defensive position.

8:19 pm: Now it's Lamar Jackson wearing a down for the first time. Baltimore, as always, emphasizes the run.

8:17 pm: Gus Edwards runs 21 meters between his first two touches.

8.15 p.m .: The Ravens get the opening start sailing through the back of the end zone for a touchback. We are on the way.
