The wheel keeps on rolling for the Patriots, who had little trouble disposing of the Cleveland Browns 27-13 last Sunday at home in a rain-soaked affair that also marked coach Bill Belichick's 300th career victory when including the playoffs. New England forced turnovers on three consecutive plays in the first quarter, highlighted by Dont'a Hightower's 26-yard fumble return, to grab a 17-0 lead in the first 13:13 of the contest.
Jackson has taken a very good Baltimore team over the top into serious contenders to make a long postseason run. He has been an efficient passer, completing 136-of-215 passes for 1,650 yards and 11 touchdowns against just five interceptions.
His ability to avoid a sack, complete passes efficiently, and scramble and run for chunks of yards at a time give the Ravens a chance against a New England defense that has been lights out through eight games this season.
New England leads the league with 19 interceptions and 31 sacks, including five last week, but its run defense showed some cracks by allowing the Cleveland Browns to rush for 159 yards in the 27-13 victory. Tom Brady ended his interception streak at four games last week, throwing for 259 yards and tossing a pair of scoring passes to Julian Edelman, who has 32 receptions over the past four games and has been the one constant in what has been a revolving door at wide receiver.

The Ravens went into the bye week with plenty of good vibes from the dual-threat skills of Jackson and some opportunistic plays by the defense. While Jackson has professed an occasional dislike of running the ball, there is little questioning his effectiveness doing so as he recorded his third 100-yard game of the season after totaling 116 and a touchdown versus the Seahawks.
Lamar Jackson leads Baltimore with 1,650 yards passing, 11 touchdowns and five interceptions. The leading rusher for the Ravens is Jackson with 576 yards and three touchdowns. Mark Andrews is the leading receiver for Baltimore with 449 yards and three touchdowns. Patrick Onwuasor leads all Baltimore defenders with 30 tackles.
Jackson threw for a season-low 143 yards in a 30-16 victory at Seattle on Oct. 20 but he ran for 116 yards and a touchdown -- his third 100-yard game of the season -- to boost his team-leading total to 576. Running back Mark Ingram has rushed for 470 yards and seven scores while Mark Andrews has a team-high 36 receptions and is one of three tight ends that have combined for 62 catches.
