Live coverage highlights

Fourth Quarter


The Ravens lose, 23-17. Their season ends at home. Their defense was good, Lamar Jackson wasn't (until late anyway), and John Harbaugh exits the playoffs without a win for the first time in his career. —Jonas Shaffer

It's 23-17 with 1:59 remaining. Ravens sure would like to have Michael Pierce available for this next drive. —Jonas Shaffer

The Ravens are averaging 2.5 yards per play. Yikes. —Jonas Shaffer

That's probably all folks. Chargers score a touchdown, make two-point conversion, lead by three scores with 14.44 left in the game. Just about everything that could go wrong has. —Peter Schmuck

Ravens were sleep walking on two point conversion pass. Some fans are chanting for Flacco —Mike Preston

Chargers punch it in from inches out. And some Ravens fans are headed out of here. —Jonas Shaffer

Third Quarter

Justin Tucker misses from 50 yards. The Ravens have come away with one field goal on two drives that started in Chargers territory. —Peter Schmuck

Ravens block what would have been Michael Badgley's fifth field goal of the game after Chargers return second half kickoff 72 yards. Big play...maybe. —Peter Schmuck

The thought coming was that the Ravens had a significant advantage on special teams. It's been quite the opposite. —Childs Walker

Second Quarter

Have to wonder if John Harbaugh is at least thinking about when he'd turn to Joe Flacco. The Ravens need some kind of jolt with 30 minutes left to save their season. —Childs Walker

Lamar Jackson has as many fumbles as he does completions today. —Jonas Shaffer

Ravens turn the ball over again. Then defense has 12 men on field for third down play. It's not all bad, but it's close. —Peter Schmuck


When I asked Ravens OC Marty Mornhinwheg on Thursday whether defenses might find it easier facing Lamar Jackson the second time around, he talked about the weather for a little bit. So far, the Chargers seem to know what's coming. —Jonas Shaffer

First Quarter

The Ravens fumble on two snaps in a row and the Chargers get the last one. They've got a first down at the Ravens 15. Not good. Three fumbles. —Peter Schmuck

Whenever Jackson drops back you hold your breath for various reasons. —Mike Preston

Small thing to note -- it is windy today at M&T Bank Stadium. Kicks could get interesting. —Childs Walker
