Lions could not bite down the Ravens' offense 38-6
After winning four straight games all by at least 14 points, the Lions had scored at least 20 points in 15 consecutive games, throughout which they had won by at least 14 points. However, both on the offensive and defensive sides of the ball, they were no match for the Ravens.
The Ravens have allowed only seven touchdowns this season, putting them in a league-low position in terms of points allowed, and despite facing some shaky quarterbacks, they made quite a statement against a Detroit team coming in on a roll.
When asked about the team's performance Coach Campbell said “We just didn’t play well. I hate to say it, but it's just one of those games. We could not get out of our own way,” Lions coach Dan Campbell said. “It’s a credit to those guys. They played outstanding football and rubbed our noses in it.”
Before Detroit even had a chance to get a first down on Sunday, Baltimore reached the end zone four times. In a matchup between division leaders in which the Ravens dominated the Lions 38-6 from the start, the Ravens ran riot in a lopsided affair. It is worth noting that Jackson threw for 357 yards and three touchdowns, with a near-perfect passer rating of 155.8. It is also worth noting that Jackson ran for a touchdown as well.
The Lions gained just 337 yards of offense compared to Baltimore's 503. Jared Goff had his least impressive game of the season, completing 33-for-53 for 284 yards and one interception. Gibbs finished with 66 yards and his first career rushing touchdown on 10 carries as the featured back.
