BALTIMORE — The Ravens beat the Los Angeles Rams, 37-31, on Tylan Wallace’s 76-yard punt return with 7:42 remaining in overtime on Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium.
Here are the game balls:
- Tylan Wallace: The fourth-year player was forced into action as the primary punt returner when Pro Bowler Devin Duvernay suffered a back injury in the third quarter. It was the first time that Wallace had fielded punts in a regular-season game and he managed the biggest play of his young career. After both teams went three-and-out to begin overtime, Wallace scored on a punt return when he juked two defenders with a spin move and found a seam down the sideline, setting off a raucous celebration.
- Lamar Jackson: The former MVP missed some deep passes and took and took three sacks, but he came up big when the team needed him most. Jackson completed 24 of 43 passes for 316 yards with three touchdowns, including the go-ahead score to Zay Flowers with 1:16 left in the game. Jackson improved to 15-3 in regular-season games in December and January. As long as Jackson is healthy, the Ravens will be in every game they play.
- Zay Flowers: The rookie first-round pick caught six passes for 60 yards with a game-tying touchdown with just over a minute left. Flowers does an exceptional job running for extra yards after the catch and creates matchup problems because of his speed.
- Odell Beckham: The veteran wide receiver was facing his former team and wore a shirt that read “Frenemies” before the game. Beckham had a solid game with four catches for 97 yards with a touchdown. If he and Jackson had connected on a couple of deep balls, the Ravens might have pulled away. Nonetheless, Beckham played a huge role in his team’s victory.
- Justin Madubuike: The defensive tackle was a force again and recorded his team-leading 11th sack. Madubuike has recorded at least a half-sack in 10 consecutive games. He was also tied for second on the team with seven tackles, including one for a loss. Madubuike is a free agent after the season and his price tag keeps rising,
