Controlling their own destiny

NFL: New York Giants at Baltimore Ravens Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

The Baltimore Ravens (10-5) with a sloppy finish still manage to beat the New York Giants (5-10) by 14 points, with a final score of 27-13.

MVP: Lamar Jackson

Easy-breezy game for the Ravens’ franchise quarterback. Jackson with a cool 65.4% completion for 183 yards and two passing touchdowns. He ends his air attack with 111.5 QB Rating. On the ground, the man added another 80 yards on 13 carries (6.2 yards per carry).

Winners:

J.K. Dobbins: A strong game and he keeps the touchdown streak alive. He’s now at five-straight games with a touchdown. He has also added 335 yards in five games, good for 67 yards per game.

Gus Edwards: The spell-back to Dobbins is just as good and he demonstrated that with some angry runs totaling XX yards. He also buried the Giants late on 2nd & 17, where he caught a sideline pass, stayed in-bounds and trucked his way 27 yards.

Dez Bryant: Another touchdown for the veteran receiver.

Justin Madubuike: The rookie notched his first career sack! He’s been playing some excellent football and Baltimore Beatdown’s Spencer Schultz touched on this with a great article earlier this week.

Marquise Brown: After some fairly down weeks, Brown is now up to four touchdowns in five games. He also didn’t drop a pass thrown his way, going four-for-four on receptions.

Patrick Queen: A solid game by the rookie and he also eclipsed 100 tackles this season. A great year to build off.

Anthony Averett: An overall solid game. The late Shepard touchdown was against him in coverage but I don’t take issue with it.

Chris Board: Two sacks today easily puts this man in the winners column. I’ve spoke endlessly about needing to finish plays and he (and the team, really) has done so today.

Pittsburgh Steelers: They did it. They miraculously came back and beat the Indianapolis Colts, allowing the red-hot Ravens into the playoffs.

Devin Duvernay: Some solid returns in the punt game have me interested in this as a possible competition heading into the playoffs.

Losers*

*= This title does not mean these players are losers. They played a poor game. It happens to the best players and should be taken lightly.

Justice Hill: The defense racks up back-to-back-to-back sacks and because of a special teams penalty, the Giants were let off the hook and ended up scoring a touchdown. I strongly disliked this.
