Mike Vrabel and his crew outscored their counterparts 14-0 in the third quarter with a pair of touchdowns. Derrick Henry tossed it over the top to Corey Davis, while Tannehill rushed from a yard out.

The Ravens responded in the fourth with Jackson tallying a 15-yard touchdown pass to Hayden Hurst. Tennessee shut down Baltimore the rest of the way, but gave up 530 total yards in the game.
