The weather in Buffalo was not conducive to big points but that didn’t stop Lamar Jackson from throwing three touchdowns in the wind. The Bills defense was able to contain his prolific rushing, holding him to 40 yards on 11 carries, but as we’ve learned this season, Jackson is much more than a running quarterback.

Neither quarterback topped 146 yards, as Jackson threw for 145 to go with his three touchdowns and one interception, while Josh Allen threw for 146 yards and one touchdown. Two of Jackson’s touchdowns went to tight ends, but neither were Mark Andrews, as he was injured and never returned. Nick Boyle and Hayden Hurst were the two touchdown tight ends while Willie Snead caught the other.

Hurst led the way for the Ravens with three receptions for 73 yards and a touchdown while Devin Singletary played well for the Bills, rushing 18 times for 89 yards and catching six passes for 29 more. Cole Beasley was the only Bills player to get into the end zone, which has been a spot he’s ended up in three straight games.

Hayden Hurst looks like the pickup if Andrews is sidelined for any significant time.

The Ravens keep the No. 1 seed in the AFC while the Bills hurt themselves for their shot at taking the AFC East.
