Ravens hand Broncos first loss of season

Lamar Jackson went 22-for-37 passing for 316 yards and a touchdown, Marquise Brown had four catches for 91 yards and a score, and the visiting Baltimore Ravens beat the host Denver Broncos 23-7 on Sunday.

Latavius Murray had 18 carries for 59 yards and a touchdown and James Proche II had five receptions for 74 yards for the Ravens (3-1).

Teddy Bridgewater left the game at halftime with a concussion in the first loss of the season for Denver (3-1). Bridgewater was 7-for-16 passing for 65 yards and a touchdown before leaving the game. Drew Lock replaced him and completed 12 of 21 passes for 113 yards and an interception in the second half.

Bridgewater was hurt when he was hit by Baltimore defensive lineman Odafe Oweh as he threw incomplete on the Broncos’ last offensive play of the first half. Bridgewater was evaluated at halftime and ruled out midway through the third quarter.

Noah Fant had six catches for 46 yards and a touchdown for Denver.

Following a scoreless first quarter the Broncos broke out on top on the second play of the second quarter when Bridgewater connected with Fant on a 3-yard touchdown pass. It capped a five-play, 57-yard drive and gave Denver a 7-0 lead.

The Ravens came right back to tie it on their next possession when Murray raced around the left and by the Broncos defense for an 11-yard TD run.

Baltimore forced a three-and-out on Denver’s next possession and put together another drive. The Ravens moved to midfield before Jackson found Brown behind the defense, and the receiver made a 49-yard diving catch in the end zone to put Baltimore ahead 14-7 with 7:09 left in the second quarter.

The Ravens capped the first half with Justin Tucker’s 40-yard field goal as time expired in the second quarter.

The Broncos couldn’t get much generated on offense in the second half but the deficit remained 17-7 into the fourth. Baltimore padded the lead on Tucker’s second field goal, this one from 46 yards, with 13:37 remaining, and Tucker hit from 20 yards out to cap the scoring.
