Lamar Jackson limited as Ravens prepare for Jets

By Sports Desk December 10, 2019

Lamar Jackson was listed as limited by the Baltimore Ravens in their Tuesday practice report.

The Ravens, in possession of the number one seed in the AFC, face the New York Jets on Thursday as they aim to move to 12-2.

Baltimore did not practice on Tuesday, instead holding a walkthrough as they adapt to the short week.

Jackson was reportedly on the field for that but, with the MVP frontrunner nursing a quad issue, the Ravens estimated he would have been limited had they held a full practice.

His participation against the Jets is not believed to be in doubt, though there is some concern over the status of tight end Mark Andrews, who was also listed as limited due to a knee problem.

The Ravens are a game ahead of the New England Patriots (10-3) in the race for the number one seed. They have already clinched a playoff berth.

    Raheem Mostert led the San Francisco 49ers to a 37-20 win over the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game and into the Super Bowl on Sunday.

    Mostert rushed for 220 yards as he ran in all four of San Francisco's touchdowns to send the team into a February 2 showdown with the Kansas City Chiefs, who earlier beat the Tennessee Titans 35-24.

    Jimmy Garoppolo threw just eight times for 77 yards as the 49ers relied on their ground game and a blistering start at Levi's Stadium to win through to their first Super Bowl appearance since 2012.

    San Francisco led 27-0 at half-time and, though Aaron Rodgers was able to guide Green Bay back to within striking distance, the home team's only concern will be the shoulder injury that forced Tevin Coleman to sit out the second half.

    Star running back Mostert finished the game as the only player in NFL history to record 200 or more rush yards and at least four TDs in a playoff clash.

    He began it in ominous fashion, rushing 36 yards to put the 49ers ahead with just under six minutes left on the clock in the first quarter.

    Mostert scored twice more either side of Robbie Gould's two field goals before the Packers finally got on the board, Aaron Jones running in after catching a Rodgers pass to complete a 10-play drive.

    San Francisco's star running back continued to take his team forward and his fourth TD inside the final five minutes of the third quarter ballooned the margin back out to 27 points.

    There was time left for a second Jones score and one from Jace Sternberger to reduce the deficit to 14 points in the fourth, but another Gould field goal and a late Richard Sherman pick made sure of the result.

    After an excellent regular season, the 49ers will hope to seize the Vince Lombardi Trophy for the sixth time when they square off against the Chiefs in Miami.

    Travis Kelce professed his love for the NFL's "best quarterback" after Patrick Mahomes led the Kansas City Chiefs past the Tennessee Titans and into the Super Bowl.

    Mahomes starred in the AFC Championship Game at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday, throwing three touchdowns and rushing for a sensational 27-yard score to help the Chiefs clinch a 35-24 victory.

    Kansas City will now face either the San Francisco 49ers or the Green Bay Packers in their first Super Bowl appearance in 50 years and tight end Kelce was in the mood to celebrate.

    The 30-year-old interrupted Mahomes' post-game interview with broadcaster CBS to boisterously praise the reigning NFL MVP.

    "This is the best quarterback in the National Football League right here, baby," Kelce said.

    "And he shows it every time! Humble as can be. I f****** love you!"

    Mahomes went 23 of 35 for 294 passing yards as he became the first player in the team's history to record multiple passing touchdowns and a rushing touchdown in a postseason game.

    The two-time Pro Bowler called the victory a vindication of the Chiefs' willingness to succeed in any manner necessary.

    "I knew going into the NFL I was going to do whatever it took to just win games," Mahomes said.

    "You can see that in every single player on this team. We don't care if we win 10-7 or 35-24. We're just going to go out there and find a way to win the football game, whatever it takes."

  • Mahomes inspires Chiefs to AFC Championship and Super Bowl return Mahomes inspires Chiefs to AFC Championship and Super Bowl return

    Patrick Mahomes inspired the Kansas City Chiefs to a 35-24 victory over the Tennessee Titans in the AFC Championship Game and a first Super Bowl appearance in 50 years.

    Chiefs quarterback Mahomes went 23 of 35 for 294 passing yards and three touchdowns at Arrowhead Stadium, while also rushing for an incredible 27-yard score at the end of the first half.

    The reigning NFL MVP became the first player in Chiefs franchise history to record multiple passing touchdowns and a rushing touchdown in a postseason game.

    Tyreek Hill had two receiving touchdowns and Sammy Watkins found the end zone off a 60-yard reception from Mahomes to end the Titans' impressive playoff run, which included victories over the New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens.

    Running back Derrick Henry started positively with a four-yard rushing touchdown for Tennessee, but Hill hit 21.27 miles per hour off an eight-yard reception to reduce the arrears.

    After a string of penalties from the Chiefs defense, Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill found Dennis Kelly with a one-yard touchdown pass at the end of a 15-play, 75-yard drive that lasted nine minutes and seven seconds to restore his team's 10-point advantage – the 321-pound offensive lineman becoming the heaviest player with a receiving TD in postseason history.

    Hill crossed for a 20-yard receiving touchdown before Mahomes took matters into his own hands with a stunning solo score 11 seconds before half-time, sending the Chiefs into the interval with a 21-17 lead.

    Kansas City's defense frustrated the Titans in the third quarter and Damien Williams made it seven touchdowns in four postseason games as a Chief when he finished over the ground from three yards at the start of the final period.

    Mahomes' stunning pass to Watkins put the Chiefs 18 points clear and a 22-yard touchdown reception for Anthony Firkser after pulling off a fake punt proved to be solely a consolation for the Titans.
