The Baltimore Ravens scored some sweet revenge on Sunday, beating the Titans in Tennessee to knock their AFC foes out of the playoffs.
Leading the Titans 20-13 late in the fourth quarter, the Ravens needed one final stop to secure the victory. Cornerback Marcus Peters came up with the big play they needed, picking off Ryan Tannehill and effectively ending the game.
After the interception, the Ravens stormed onto the Titans logo to celebrate, taking revenge for an insult brought against them earlier in the year.
Lamar Jackson and the Ravens offense came out to close the game out. A few first downs later, and the Ravens were ready to kneel the game away. Jackson took the snap, took a knee, and started jogging off the field as the final seconds ticked off the clock.
For the Ravens, the win was a long time coming, with reigning MVP Lamar Jackson recording the first playoff win of his career in his third attempt. In their past two meetings against the Titans, the Ravens had been beaten, once in a shocking playoff loss last year and then again this year in the regular season.
Ahead of their previous 2020 meeting, the two teams got testy on the field ahead of the game, with the Ravens taking issue with the Titans after the team celebrated a bit too confidently on Baltimore's home-field logo.
On Sunday, the Ravens paid back the insult in full.
While the Ravens and Titans aren't scheduled to play in the 2021 regular season, it feels like there's a solid rivalry building between these two teams.
