After a victory in the wild card round against the Tennessee Titans, the Baltimore Ravens were knocked out of the NFL Playoffs and had their season ended by the Buffalo Bills in a 17-3 loss.
A series of costly mistakes by the Ravens kept the game tied at halftime and then points early in the second half.
Ravens kicker Justin Tucker, usually Mr. Reliable, missed two field goals in the first half under windy, cold conditions in Buffalo. Instead of possibly going to the half with a 9-3 lead, the game was tied 3-3 after Tucker made his first field goal with only a few seconds left in the 2nd quarter.
Buffalo made adjustments on offense to start the second half and promptly put together a drive for the game's first touchdown when Bills QB Josh Allen hit Stefon Diggs with a 3-yard pass to cap off a 66-yard drive.
The Ravens responded with a long drive of their own on offense, only for QB Lamar Jackson to be picked off in the end zone by Taron Johnson, who promptly took the ball 101 yards for a Bills TD and a 17-3 advantage.
On the ensuing Ravens drive, Jackson was injured while attempting to avoid a sack. He was ruled out of the game with a potential concussion. Unfortunately for the Ravens, the game quickly got out of reach.
The Bills will face the winner of Sunday's matchup between the Cleveland Browns and Kansas City Chiefs.
