PHILADELPHIA – The Baltimore Ravens got the stop they needed against a depleted Eagles offense that staged an impressive comeback.
L.J. Fort and Matthew Judon tackled Carson Wentz on a 2-point conversion attempt with 1:55 remaining and the Ravens held on for a 30-28 victory over Philadelphia on Sunday.
“These are the type of games that build championship chemistry,” said Calais Campbell, who had three sacks. “In the moment, when it really mattered, them going for 2, we showed up and made the play when it counted.”
Lamar Jackson threw a touchdown pass, ran for 108 yards and one score and sent the Ravens (5-1) to their third straight win.
“It’s a win that we’re very, very happy to have,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. “I’m proud of our guys for winning the fight at the end. We’re not going to be happy with certain things. We have to execute better on both sides. We can’t give up big plays. We’ve got to get them stopped.”
The Eagles (1-4-1) came in missing seven offensive starters, including four offensive linemen, and then lost two more when running back Miles Sanders left in the third quarter and tight end Zach Ertz exited in the fourth.
Wentz tossed two TD passes, was sacked six times and managed to finish the game along with center Jason Kelce as Philadelphia’s only healthy starters.
“Every healthy body we had played in this game,” Eagles coach Doug Pederson said. “The guys battled their tails off and had a chance to win against a healthy, healthy team. I'm proud of these guys.”
