The Baltimore Ravens held a seven-point lead with the ball in the third quarter before disaster struck. Lamar Jackson got knocked on his head, fumbling the ball and setting up the Las Vegas Raiders game-tying score in the third quarter.

The play turned a game the Ravens mostly controlled on its head, setting up a wild finish that would go to overtime. Another fumble on Baltimore's final possession of overtime led to a rousing 33-27 Las Vegas victory.  Jackson was dissatisfied with his fumbles, Kevin Patra of reports.

"That ticked me off," Jackson said of his fumbles, via the Baltimore Sun. "I hate any type of happens in football."

Jackson still had moments of electricity, taking off and making something out of nothing, en route to 235 yards passing with a touchdown and 86 rushing yards on 12 carries. Still, at times -- like trying to switch hands with the pigskin in mid-air while being hit -- he seemed to try to do too much, as though all the Ravens' running back injuries have him believing it's on his legs to make plays.

"If you're a quarterback, you're trying to go through your progressions, and guys [are] in your face, they're trying to get them a sack, it's going to be like that," Jackson said. "Sometimes you can't go through your reads. You've got to make something happen."
