The Baltimore Ravens put down a major marker in the AFC on Sunday, thrashing the Houston Texans as Lamar Jackson strengthened his MVP credentials.
The Ravens kept the Texans scoreless for over three quarters, forced two turnovers and recorded a season-high six sacks in their 4-17 demolition on Sunday, which improve their record for the season to 8-2.
Jackson finished 17-of-24 for 222 yards and four touchdown passes, to which he added 86 rushing yards over nine carries.
The second-year quarterback has rushed for at least 60 yards in seven consecutive games, the longest streak in NFL history and has surpassed Cam Newton as the quarterback with the most rushing yards in his first two seasons in the league.
Jackson’s longest run was a 39-yard gallop, in which he broke six tackles and sliced through the Texans secondary at will.
“That was remarkable,” Ravens coach Jim Harbaugh told the Associated Press.
“It was incredible. I haven’t seen anything quite like it—since last week.”
Baltimore takes its 8-2 record to Los Angeles in Week 12, taking on the Rams on Monday Night Football.
The reigning NFC champions kept their slim hopes of playoffs alive with a 17-7 home win against the Chicago Bears to improve 6-4.
The Rams, however, remain behind both the Seattle Seahawks—who were on a bye this week—and the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC West.
The latter bounced back from a loss against Seattle and improved to 9-1 with a 36-26 win over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.
Jimmy Garoppolo completed 34 of 45 passes for 424 yards, four touchdown passes and two interceptions as the NFC West leaders rallied back from a 16-0 deficit.
The 49ers host the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football in a game that could go a long way towards the deciding the race for the number one spot in the NFC.
The Packers return from their bye top of the NFC North with an 8-2 record but may have to start looking over their shoulder soon after the Minnesota Vikings improved to 8-3.
Down 20-0 at halftime at home to the Denver Broncos, the Vikings, who will be on a bye in Week 12, became the first team since December 2014 to overcome such a deficit to win 27-23.
Elsewhere, the New England Patriots emerged victorious from Philadelphia, defeating the Eagles 17-10 to move to 9-1 for the season.
With Tom Brady and the offense struggling—the six-time Super Bowl champion completed 26 of 47 passes, throwing for 216 yards and no touchdowns—the Patriots again relied on their defense, shutting down the Eagles in the final two quarters.
Another NFC East team is up next for the Patriots, with the Dallas Cowboys traveling to New England on Sunday afternoon.
The Cowboys seized on to the Eagles’ defeat to the Patriots to open up a gap at the top of the division, improving to 6-4 as their rivals fell to 5-5.
Dallas’ win over the Lions in Detroit was far from straightforward but it puts the Cowboys in the driver’s seat to become the first team to retain the NFC East title in over a decade.
Elsewhere, the Texans host the Indianapolis Colts in a crucial AFC South matchup on Thursday Night Football.
The Texans slipped to 6-4 after their shellacking in Baltimore, the same record as the Colts, who defeated divisional rivals Jacksonville Jaguars 33-13 at home.
Indianapolis rushed for 264 yards—the best team performance since they rushed for 275 yards against Chicago in November 2004—and dealt the Jaguars’ hopes of a wildcard spot a potentially decisive blow.
