Baltimore received a tough blow last week as they fell 41-21 to the Cincinnati Bengals. Baltimore was down 34-14 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. A silver lining for them was the play of TE Mark Andrews, who caught eight passes for one TD and 125 yards.
Meanwhile, Los Angeles beat the Minnesota Vikings 30-23 last week. Los Angeles can attribute much of their success to RB Sony Michel, who rushed for one TD and 131 yards on 27 carries.
Special teams collected 12 points for the Rams. K Matt Gay delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game. Brandon Powell’s 61-yard punt return for touchdown should surely be counted as one of the game’s standout moments.
Los Angeles’ win brought them up to 11-4 while the Ravens’ defeat pulled them down to 8-7. Los Angeles has clinched a playoff berth as the current third seed in the NFC. Baltimore is still in the hunt for a spot in the playoffs, so these next two games are critical for them.
