Baltimore Sun Sunday - - NEWS - By Childs Walker

Rookie quar­ter­back Lamar Jack­son threw 18 times in the first half of the Ravens’ 34-17 win over the Oak­land Raiders, with mixed re­sults. He threw a per­fect deep ball to tight end Mark An­drews for a 74-yard gain but also threw two in­ter­cep­tions and looked ten­ta­tive at times when he had to de­cide be­tween run or pass. Joe Flacco re­turned to prac­tice Thurs­day, and the Fal­cons are pre­par­ing for both quar­ter­backs, know­ing the Ravens are un­likely to an­nounce their starter. |

Matt Ryan is hav­ing one of his best sta­tis­ti­cal sea­sons, com­plet­ing 71.4 per­cent of his passes and av­er­ag­ing 8.5 yards per at­tempt. He’s thrown for 24 touch­downs against just five in­ter­cep­tions. But the Fal­cons have gone cold over their past three games, av­er­ag­ing just 17.3 points in that span. Julio Jones re­mains among the best wide re­ceivers in the sport, with 84 catches for 1,305 yards through 11 games. Rookie Calvin Ri­d­ley has eight touch­down catches.
