Ravens lose Lamar Jackson’s playoff debut, 23-17 to Chargers
BALTIMORE (AP) — Lamar Jackson's passer rating was bottoming out at 0.0, he'd endured a first half with a combined total of fumbles and interceptions (three) that was higher than his number of completions (two), and his playoff debut was shaping up as, in a word, a disaster.

Jackson helps Ravens run past Buccaneers 20-12
