This game was filled with one-sided highlights and we’re here to pull them all into a single article!
On the first drive, Joe Flacco faced a 2nd & 26. After buying time he threw across the field with a completion to John Brown!

On the Bills’ first drive, Tavon Young reminded fans he isn’t just a skilled cover corner, he’s also fast and capable of taking down the quarterback.

Shortly thereafter, Joe Flacco completed his first of three touchdowns on the day. This one into the hands of Smokey.

With only seconds left in the first half, Joe dropped a beautiful throw into the arms of Michael Crabtree, who toe-tapped down for the score.

The Ravens were far from done as Joe completes the hat-trick with a completion to Willie Snead IV!

Nathan Peterman was jealous of Flacco’s completions, therefore he hit Brandon Carr with a great 32-yard interception.

After Joe left the game, Lamar Jackson stepped in. His throw away turned into a highlight with big Michael Pierce leaping for the catch on the sideline!
