BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Lamar Jackson says the Ravens will be back after a tough loss against the Buffalo Bills this weekend.
On Instagram Monday, the first time he was heard from since the team’s road to the Super Bowl ended with Saturday’s 17-3 loss, Jackson wrote about how they overcame adversity this season, citing their issues with the coronavirus spread through the team and “all type of adversity.”READ MORE: Eating Cicadas Is Actually Good For The Environment And Apparently They Taste Like Shrimp

It’s the up-and-down life of an NFL quarterback: get the glory when your team wins and often the blame when the team loses. Jackson has enjoyed more wins than losses in his three years with the Ravens — except at playoff time.
The loss at Buffalo included a fateful play that dramatically changed the game: a pass from Jackson was intercepted by the Bills’ Tarron Johnson, who returned it 101 yards for a touchdown. That gave the Bills their 17-3 lead.
The play was the first time in Jackson’s career he threw an interception in the Red Zone. Still, his teammates stand by him after the early playoff exit.MORE NEWS: 3 Injured Following Gas Explosion In Pikesville On Friday
Jackson did not specifically mention the injury he suffered that caused him to leave the game in the third quarter for a possible concussion. Backup quarterback Tyler Huntley finished the game for the Ravens.
