Tennessee Titans vs. Baltimore Ravens Recap NOV 22TH 2020

Derrick Henry rushed for a franchise-postseason-record 195 yards on 30 carries and also passed for a touchdown, as the Tennessee Titans routed the host Baltimore Ravens 28-12 on Saturday night in the AFC divisional playoff round.

It was the second straight huge playoff performance for Henry, who has placed the sixth-seeded Titans (11-7) within one win of advancing to the Super Bowl. Tennessee will travel to face the winner of Sunday's game between the Houston Texans and Kansas City Chiefs in next weekend's AFC Championship game.

Ryan Tannehill passed for two touchdowns despite having just 88 yards, and he also rushed for one score as the Titans outplayed the top-seeded Ravens (14-3). Jurrell Casey contributed a big strip sack, while Kevin Byard and Kenny Vaccaro recorded interceptions.

Henry has rushed for 377 yards in the two playoff victories. He had set a franchise record with 182 rushing yards in last week's wild-card round victory over the New England Patriots before breaking it again versus the Ravens. Counting a 211-yard performance against the Texans to conclude the regular season, Henry is the first player in NFL history with 180 or more rushing yards in three consecutive games.

Baltimore quarterback Lamar Jackson completed 31 of 59 passes for 365 yards, one touchdown, the two picks and the lost fumble. He rushed for 143 yards on 20 carries, but it took him nearly 49 minutes to get the Ravens into the end zone. His team fell despite having a 530-300 edge in total offense.

Tennessee started the scoring with two touchdowns and held a 14-6 halftime lead before dominating the third quarter.

Henry rushed for 117 yards in third quarter, including a 66-yard burst on third-and-1 to move the ball to the Baltimore 6-yard line. On third-and-goal from the 3, Henry took the direct snap and paused behind the line before elevating to throw a perfect jump pass to Corey Davis, increasing the lead to 21-6 with 6:54 left in the third quarter.

On Baltimore's next play from scrimmage, Casey knocked the ball away from Jackson during the sack, and teammate Jeffery Simmons recovered at the Baltimore 20. Six plays later, Tannehill kept the ball on the option, broke through a tackle and scored on third-and-goal from the 1 to make it 28-6 with 4:16 remaining.

Baltimore finally found the end zone when Jackson threw a 15-yard touchdown pass to Hayden Hurst with 11:04 left. The Ravens' two-point pass was incomplete.

Tannehill got Tennessee moving early by tossing a 12-yard touchdown pass to Jonnu Smith, who made a fabulous juggling catch with 3:36 left in the opening quarter. He threw another scoring pass 15 seconds into the second quarter when Kalif Raymond made a diving 45-yard touchdown catch after shedding the coverage of Baltimore's Marlon Humphrey.

Justin Tucker kicked field goals of 49 and 22 in the second quarter for the Ravens, who finished 0-for-4 on fourth down, including two failures on fourth-and-1. Entering the game, Baltimore had not been stopped on a fourth-and-1 all season.

--Field Level Media

The Tennessee Titans and Baltimore Ravens are known for having two of the highest-scoring offenses in the NFL. Both are looking to play to that identity again on Sunday when they meet in a key AFC battle in Baltimore.

Each comes in with a 6-3 record, but neither has been at its best of late. Tennessee's 34-17 loss to Indianapolis on Nov. 12 was its third in four games, dropping it completely out of the seven-team AFC playoff field for now.

The Ravens' 23-17 Sunday night loss at New England snapped a league-record 31-game streak in which they scored at least 20 points, but also served to highlight the biggest problem for their sputtering offense -- a sudden inability to create big plays.


Expert NFL Predictions for Every Game


In going 14-2 last year and earning the No. 1 seed in the AFC, Baltimore averaged 6.1 yards per play and 11.6 yards per completion, good for third and 13th in the NFL, respectively. This year, those numbers are down to 5.5 and 11.2, respectively.

"We want more big plays for sure," said Ravens coach John Harbaugh. "We want catch-and-run plays. We took numerous opportunities to try to throw the ball deep in that game, and none of them really happened in terms of the deep throws.

"So you just have to keep working on it and try to make it happen. If we could make some big plays in the passing game, that would be huge for us."

Quarterback Lamar Jackson isn't experiencing that big of a drop-off from last year. His current numbers are on pace to be just slightly down from an MVP season. But Jackson has already turned the ball over as much this year as he did last year.


NFL Handicappers Rankings


Opponents have also been able to take away deep threat Marquise Brown, who in his last three games has just six catches for 55 yards. Brown was averaging 14.5 yards per catch before that stretch.

The Titans might be the team that could fix that issue. They have experienced problems most of the season against the pass, and veteran quarterback Philip Rivers exploited it last week. With an anemic pass rush managing just one sack on 39 attempts, Rivers threw for 308 yards.

But with other issues plaguing Tennessee -- a banged-up offensive line and special teams problems -- coach Mike Vrabel is more worried about the macro than the micro.

"We're just trying to win a game," he said. "A lot of teams are bunched up just like last year. We're trying to put our head down and focusing on continuing to improve at this point in the season, knowing teams are going in different directions."

Vrabel surprised more than a few pundits when he opted to stick with Stephen Gostkowski for placements and Trevor Daniel on punts in place of the injured Brett Kern. Gostkowski is just 12 of 20 on field goals, while Daniel shanked a 17-yarder and had a punt blocked to fuel the Colts' 21-0 second-half surge.

Former Raiders kicker Giorgio Tavecchio is on the Titans' practice squad, but Vrabel, a former teammate of Gostkowski's in New England, reiterated on Monday that he's the team's kicker, so keep this in mind when betting on NFL player props for this game.

Lost in both teams' need to win is the fact this is a rematch of an AFC divisional round game last January in Baltimore, when Tennessee got 195 yards rushing from Derrick Henry in a 28-12 upset. Jackson's 508 total yards -- 365 passing, 143 rushing -- amounted to nothing more than a fourth-quarter touchdown pass after the game was decided.
