Background

The Jacksonville Jaguars (8-5) take on the Baltimore Ravens (10-3) at 8:20 p.m. ET on Sunday at EverBank Stadium.

Follow along here for live updates and key highlights from the game!

First quarter

The Ravens won the coin toss and elected to defer, giving the Jaguars the ball first. Travis Etienne picked up one first down but Logan Cooke quickly came on the field and pinned Baltimore down on its own 11-yard line. The Ravens drove downfield in a hurry via four consecutive completions of 9-plus yards, but the Jags held up in the red zone to force a Justin Tucker 43-yard field goal.

Once again, the Jaguars got a nice first down — this time off a 28-yard catch by Luke Farrell down the seam — but were forced to kick after just a few plays. Brandon McManus’ 50-yard attempt hit the right post and fell short. Fortunately, Jacksonville’s defense forced a three-and-out (aided by a Travon Walker sack).

Second quarter

Jacksonville was able to get its run game going, as Etienne and D’Ernest Johnson each picked up a first down on the ground, but the drive ended with another missed field goal by McManus — this time from 55 yards out. Just three plays later, Lamar Jackson threw a poorly-timed pass right into the hands of Rayshawn Jenkins for an interception.

The Jaguars put together a 10-play ensuing drive, but only went 38 yards before Trevor Lawrence fumbled the ball in the red zone. The Ravens responded with a 13-play, 60-yard drive that ended with a 16-yard touchdown by Isaiah Likely.

Jacksonville got the chance to score before the half, as Lawrence connected with Zay Jones on a 36-yard completion to get set up at the goal line, but Parker Washington caught a pass in bounds to let the clock run into halftime.

Third quarter

Baltimore began the second half with an 8-play drive, but it only went 22 yards before the punt unit came onto the field. Jacksonville picked up a first down following consecutive Engram catches before Lawrence unleashed a 65-yard touchdown to Jamal Agnew for the offense’s longest play of the season.

Each team traded punts before the start of the final quarter.

Fourth quarter

The Ravens drove down the field in a flash thanks to a 24-yard rush by Keaton Mitchell and a 26-yard catch by Likely. On the fifth play of the possession, Gus Edwards found paydirt from one yard out.

The Jaguars went three-and-out on offense after Lawrence couldn’t connect with Engram on an off-platform throw. The Ravens put together a lengthy drive, buoyed by a ’12 men on the field’ penalty by Jacksonville and ending with a 26-yard field goal by Tucker.

Jaguars 7, Ravens 20

After two deep incompletions, Lawrence tried to force a play and ended up fumbling the ball. Baltimore recovered it on the 19-yard line and Tucker kicked a 34-yarder three plays later.

Jaguars 7, Ravens 23 (FINAL)
