Baltimore makes another magical comeback on Monday Night Football

Baltimore- The Ravens complete a second half comeback to stun the Indianapolis Colts 31-25.

Inconsistency seems to be the theme for the Ravens this season. Last week, their defense pulled out a victory and this week on Monday Night Football, they looked like they were playing flag football. A once feared defense, looked like they couldn't hold their water against the Colts. Carson Wentz look like he did in his first two years in the NFL and put on a throwing clinic against the Ravens. Wentz finished the game with 402 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Lamar Jackson had an unconditional and frustrating first half like former Raiders HC Jon Gruden. From his receivers dropping balls that normally they would catch, to Jackson turning the ball over, it was just not the typical night that you would see from the Ravens. Late in the third quarter, it looked like the Ravens could cut into the Colts' lead after scoring a touchdown to make it 21-9 However, they went for two and did not convert the down. Jackson drove his team down the field, scored a touchdown, and converted the two-point conversion midway in the fourth to make it a one-score game 25-17. Could they make another Monday Night comeback?

Baltimore had a shot to go down the field and tie the game up, after special teams blocked the Colts' field goal attempt. Jackson and crew went into an up-tempo formation and had the Colts moon-walking. Baltimore scored a touchdown, but needed to covert the two point conversion to tie up the game. Once again, drama was building before the snap. The ball was snapped and Jackson threw a strike to his wide receiver to convert the down, 25-25.

Baltimore was in business, after the Colts missed a game winning field-goal to go into overtime.

The Ravens got the ball first and made sure that they were going home with a victory. Jackson hit Hollywood Brown for the go-ahead touchdown.

Jackson finished with 442 Yards and 4 touchdowns.
