Live coverage highlights

Fourth Quarter


Lamar Jackson will finish the game under 100 rushing yards, but the Ravens will end this game with a 20-12 win, one step closer to the playoffs. Tampa Bay was held to a season low in yardage. —Jonas Shaffer

The Ravens now have more rushing yards in the past five games than the Minnesota Vikings, Arizona Cardinals and Atlanta Falcons did all season (entering today's games, at least). —Jonas Shaffer


The Ravens cannot leave the outcome of this game to chance. They need to get the ball back and make this a two-score game. Jameis Winston is another quarterback who is very hard to stop at four-down time. —Peter Schmuck

Lamar Jackson is the first quarterback in NFL history with 70-plus rushing yards in five straight games. —Jonas Shaffer

Third Quarter

Lamar Jackson is either part Wolverine or got some Icy Hot, because the limp he had last drive is gone. —Jonas Shaffer

Would hate to look back and see that inexplicable mental error by Cyrus Jones be the difference between making the playoffs and a possible organizational shakeup. —Peter Schmuck

Gus Edwards rumbles in from 10 yards, and the Ravens lead 17-9. That drive was everything the Ravens want to do on offense, minus the potential Jackson injury. —Jonas Shaffer

Say what you will about Lamar Jackson, the Ravens have tended to roar out of halftime with him at quarterback. —Childs Walker

Second Quarter

The Ravens can't complain about officiating today. They are getting a lot of calls. —Mike Preston

No more trick plays. Just run up the gut or off tackle. —Mike Preston

I'm really surprised the Bucs are running on the Ravens to this degree. One of the worst rushing offenses in the league is averaging five yards a carry. —Childs Walker

First Quarter


Lamar Jackson continues to struggle with exchanges, and that one cost the Ravens. Really shaky start for the rookie as Joe Flacco stands on the sideline. —Childs Walker

Lamar Jackson has thrown two bad passes today. One was bailed out by pass interference. The other was just dropped by the defender. Tampa Bay takes over after a punt at its 13. —Jonas Shaffer

Hayden Hurst just caught an eight yard pass. I forgot he was even on the roster. —Mike Preston
