Lamar Jackson frustrated makes today’s NFL news update. Last week, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson claimed that defenses calling out their plays, which he believes is one of the reasons their offense hasn’t been as explosive as it was last season.
Things didn’t get better on Sunday as the Ravens managed only 17 points in their 23-17 loss to New England. After the game, Jackson told reporters that he was upset about the team’s performance.
“We ticked off. Don’t nobody like losing,” Jackson said after the loss, via the team’s official transcript. “I know none of you guys like losing. Especially we got a lot of talent on our team. Just got to regroup. Tuesday go watch film on our opponents, Tennessee, and go from there.”
To make matters worse, the loss pushed the Ravens three games behind the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC North with only seven games left on their schedule.

“We just going — you know, don’t pay back this loss no more,” Jackson said. “It’s over with; we can’t do nothing about it. We get together, we’re going to talk some things over, see what we are going to adjust, scheme up the team we got next, and build, like I said before.”
Injuries are also starting to pile up for Baltimore. Two weeks after All-Pro left tackle Ronnie Stanley suffered a season-ending ankle injury, tight end Nick Boyle was carted off the field Sunday with a season-ending knee injury. The team now has four defensive starters out due to injuries.
“Those guys are huge,” Jackson said. “They’re great players for us. We need them. They’re starters for a reason. We don’t like to see none of our guys go down.”
Things won’t get easier for the Ravens anytime soon with their next two games against the Tennessee Titans, who knocked them out of the playoffs last season, and the undefeated Steelers.
“We’re just going to stick together. We’re going to build,” Jackson said. “It’s one team, one goal. We’re good.”
