Ravens Have Perfect Formula to defeat the Chiefs

It’s been said the past three weeks, but Lamar Jackson is doing enough for the Ravens to win. That said, with a perfect 3-0 record, Jackson has helped enhance the Ravens most important formula. Defense and ball control.

There is no secret. The Ravens defense is elite.

They rank 1st in both points allowed per game and total yards allowed. Allowing just 87.2 yards on the ground is almost as impressive as allowing less than 195 yards in the air.

Although Jackson is a contributor in the formula, the main factor is how elite the defense has played. Forcing three-and-outs have become common nature. The Falcons converted on just 22% of their third-downs.

How does Jackson figure into the formula?
