In beating Falcons, Lamar Jackson stakes claim to keeping QB job

5 questions with Ravens Wire ahead of Week 13 matchup

For the Ravens, a major change has happened on the offensive side of the ball as head coach John Harbaugh has named rookie quarterback, and 2016 Heisman victor, Lamar Jackson as the starter over veteran Joe Flacco. Despite the return of Deion Jones, their own defense allowed over 200 rushing yards for Baltimore in the losing effort. During this quagmire, the game was played before thousands of empty seats at Mercedes-Benz Stadium and the Falcons fans vociferously showed their displeasure with plenty of boos each time Ryan was hit, hurried and/or sacked. Ryan leads the league in passing yards, putting up 335 yards per game, and trails only Drew Brees in completion percentage, connecting on 71.4 % of his passes.

"It's a question that's still yet to be answered", coach John Harbaugh said. "At the end of the day, I think that's the most important thing is to play well, and we haven't done that". "There is no excuse, we just have to find a way to come out on the right end of it". That would be the only touchdown on the day for the Dirty Birds. One play later, they were facing a deficit in Atlanta.

Edwards recorded his first negative rush on Sunday, showing just how dominant he and the run game has been coming out of the bye.

Special teams: The special teams highlight came early in the second quarter when punter Sam Koch threw a 21-yard pass to Chris Moore to put the Ravens at the Falcons' 25-yard line.

This is a great opportunity for the Falcons to play a bit of spoiler to a Ravens team that is squarely in the playoff hunt and should be a fun matchup between two squads that have a lot of talent on both sides of the field. Pressure. Different looks. Keeping the quarterback on his toes and we did that throughout the course of the game. Baltimore held a almost 2-to-1 edge in time of possession (39:39-20:21) and limited the Falcons to 2 of 9 on third-down conversions. "That makes it tough when you really are not moving it and you're letting them kind of dictate the game". ". We're in a hard time right now, but they'll figure out the answers".

He played the rest of the way against Pittsburgh, but when the Ravens returned to action November 18, he was inactive and Jackson was the starting quarterback. For the past 11 seasons, Flacco was under center for every meaningful game. "I know that's what you always hear, but that's really got to be the focus". We're obviously seeing far more emphasis on the run game and the snap counts back that up.

Justin Tucker connected on field goals of 41, 21, 45 and 47 yards. Grady Jarrett sacked Baltimore quarterback Lamar Jackson and forced a fumble, which was recovered by Beasley and returned for a 74-yard touchdown.

"This is as challenged as we've been in a while, certainly since I've been here", said Dan Quinn, in his fourth season as the Falcons coach. Kickoff is at 1pm.
