Scorigami, a ‘Monday Night Football’ record and rushing history: Ravens’ 47-42 win over Browns by the numbers

The Ravens’ 47-42 win over the Cleveland Browns on “Monday Night Football” was one of the wildest in league history, and not just because Lamar Jackson left with cramps. Here’s a look at some of the notable numbers from a memorable night:

  • A final score of 47-42 had never happened before in NFL history. It became the 1061st unique final score in league history, otherwise known as “Scorigami,” a concept developed by writer Jon Bois.
  • Jackson’s 124 rushing yards are the most by a quarterback in “Monday Night Football” history. Coincidentally, the first Monday night game in NFL history was held at Cleveland Municipal Stadium for a game between the Browns and New York Jets on Sept. 21, 1970. Cleveland won, 31-21, after intercepting Joe Namath three times.
  • According to NFL Research, Jackson and running back Gus Edwards are the only Ravens duo to each have two or more rushing touchdown in the same game in franchise history.
  • Also according to NFL Research, it was the third game in NFL history with nine rushing touchdowns, tied for the most ever in a single game. The other two games happened in 1922: The Rock Island Independents (9) over the Evansville Crimson Giants (0) on Oct. 15 and the Racine Legion (9) over the Louisville Brecks (0) on Nov. 5.
  • The Ravens and Browns also became the first pair of teams in NFL history to each have four or more rushing touchdowns in the same game.
  • The 89 combined points are the most in an NFL game this season, and the third highest in “Monday Night Football” history. Washington and the Green Bay Packers combined to score 95 points in 1983.
  • The 20 points scored in the final two minutes are the most in any game since 2013.
  • Thanks to the Browns’ desperate laterals on the final play that ended up sending the ball out of the back of the end zone, it’s the first game to end on a safety since 2016.
  • The Ravens were favored to win by three to four points by most sportsbooks. The final safety pushed the margin of victory to five. Ben Fawkes of VSiN reported that one bettor at FanDuel Sportsbook wagered $40,000 on the Browns alternate spread +4.5 at -130. The safety on the final play also produced a “six-figure swing” for the house at MGM sportsbooks.
  • Also from NFL Research: With a 12-yard pass to Nick Chubb on Monday night, Jarvis Landry is now 4-for-4 passing for 74 yards and a touchdown this season. Landry is the only non-quarterback in NFL history to have a perfect completion percentage and at least 70 passing yards on at least four pass attempts in a single season.
