PASS­ING GAME

Baltimore Sun Sunday - - RAVENS -

La­mar Jack­son threw for five touch­downs for the third time this sea­son in the Ravens’ 42-21 Week 15 vic­tory over the New York Jets. The story of Jack­son’s sec­ond year has been effi- ciency over vol­ume. He ranks 24th in the league in pass at­tempts and

29th in yards per game but leads the

NFL in touch­down passes and ranks sec­ond in passer rat­ing. Af­ter a pair of un­pro­duc­tive per­for­mances, rookie wide re­ceiver Mar­quise Brown bounced back against the Jets.

Af­ter a promis­ing rookie year and pre­sea­son talk of a pos­si­ble MVP run, 2018 No. 1 over­all pick Baker May­field has strug­gled, throw­ing as many in­ter­cep­tions, 17, as touch­down passes. Though May­field has faced a tough slate of pass de­fenses, he ranks sec­ond to last in passer rat­ing among QBs with enough at­tempts to qualif. The Browns have strug­gled to get the ball to prize off­sea­son ac­qui­si­tion Odell Beck­ham Jr., who has just two 100-yard re­ceiv­ing games and two TD catches.
