Baltimore takes down the Falcons: Handing out 3 Ravens game balls

Baltimore takes down the Falcons: Handing out 3 Ravens game balls

It is the second straight week that the Ravens have held their opponents to fewer than 20 points and seventh time this year.

The 2016 Heisman Trophy victor, making his third straight start and first on the road, completed only 12 of 21 passes for 125 yards but did plenty of damage with his legs. The NFL's receiving leader has been torching defenses all season to the tune of 1,305 receiving yards, and Jones will try to continue his elite work against a Ravens defense that has allowed just 295.4 yards per game to opposing offenses.

"Truthfully, it's kind of how we think every week", Baltimore coach John Harbaugh said. "That's a tough pill to swallow".

The Ravens got a third straight win behind rookie quarterback Jackson, who completed 12 of 21 passes for 125 yards and ran 17 times for 75 yards and one touchdown on a 13-yard run.

Even Adrian Peterson thinks the Redskins need Colin Kaepernick
He filed a grievance against the National Football League previous year , saying team owners colluded to keep him off rosters. Several owners, coaches and team executives have been called to testify, and the case is scheduled to go to trial.


It would be tempting to blame the lack of run production on the absence of Devonta Freeman, but he has been on injured reserve since the second week of the season.

With all playoff hopes seemingly dashed, the Falcons now travel to Green Bay to face the Packers next Sunday.

In a season filled with disappointment, Sunday's effort against the Baltimore Ravens may have been the low point for the Atlanta Falcons. "So it's complementary football that we're playing, and we've just got to keep it rolling". Jackson was sacked twice, but for only a loss of 8 yards.

Now, the Falcons are simply trying to survive.

Trump and Xi agreement buys time in trade war
What pushed the two sides to the table? Trump also talked about reducing arms race between US, China and Russian Federation . That would still take effect if the sides can not agree to a larger trade deal within the three-month window.


Atlanta Quarterback Matt Ryan was 16 of 26 for 131 yards and went down three times on sacks. "Disappointing. Credit to them, they came out, they had a good plan for us and they executed the plan a lot better than we did". "We are just not putting ourselves in good situations". He continued, "we're ready to get rocking and it's going to be a hell of a game".

"It's tough when you see something for the first time", Harbaugh said at his weekly news conference December 3. I know the mentality of this team. "This is an offense that I don't know if any of us know exactly where it's going". So, we've got to play well up front for sure, and at all positions, we have to play well.

Quinn said the missing players "have had a significant impact" in the Falcons' "style and attitude". "It's a challenge we have to overcome".

Quinn said he appreciates Blank's support "during this time of year, especially". "All the preparation for Baltimore, we have a ton of respect for the matchups, but at the end of it, I also told them, comes down to us and our execution".

Trump's advisers struggle to explain deal he says he cut with Xi
In a series of tweets Monday, the president said his meeting with President Xi Jinping was an extraordinary one. "It's 90 days. China had previously offered to increase its purchases of U.S. products, only to have Mr Trump reject the deal.
