NFL Week 12: Ravens Overcome Browns, Rams Lose Third Straight To Pack

Jonathan Grant | November 29th, 2021

It’s been said many times that the best way to see if a team is championship material or not is to look at their results when they are less than their best. The Baltimore Ravens might just be ready to be champions based on their win on Sunday during week 12 of the NFL season. That’s because they didn’t play well at all and still found a way to get past the Cleveland Browns with a 16-10 victory. Lamar Jackson threw four, yes four, interceptions, yet the Ravens left the weekend with the knowledge that they are 8-3 and in control of their destiny not only in the division but also the entire conference.

Dawgs by Nature

If they win out from here, which does seem a bit unlikely albeit not impossible, they will be the top seed in the AFC. The highlight of this game had to be Mark Andrews’ ridiculous catch that set up a TD drive in the third quarter, putting them in control for good. Elsewhere, the Green Bay Packers were making a statement as they took down the Los Angeles Rams 36-28, handing the Rams their third straight defeat in the process. Green Bay is always strong at home, and this was further proof as they took their record to 5-0 at Lambeau as Aaron Rodgers led the way with 307 yards passing and two touchdown tosses. Davante Adams made eight catches for 104 yards as well in a win that wasn’t quite as close as the scoreline suggests due to the fact that Green Bay led 36-17 after three quarters. The loss saw LA drop to 7-4 and the Pack improve to 9-3. Still in the thick of the NFC race. The same can be said of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers following their 38-31 comeback win in Indianapolis over the Colts. Down 24-14 at the half, Leonard Fournette reminded everyone he was still one of the best running backs in the league by inspiring his team back into the contest. He scored four touchdowns in all in the game, with the final one coming from 28 yards with 20 seconds left to put his team up. Tampa, like Green Bay, is also 8-3 and well within the mix for that coveted top seed.
