"Right now, it's the number one best win", Harbaugh said in his post-match press conference.
The reigning MVP was 0-2 in the postseason but rushed for 136 yards and a touchdown as the Ravens came back from a 10-point deficit in the wild card round.
The Titans lost their first home playoff game in 12 years as the Ravens will go on to either play the Kansas City Chiefs or the Buffalo Bills in the divisional round.
Finally, the third was the charm for Lamar Jackson. "In perspective, it's going to be top five for sure, but right now, for me, this is the best win ever", the Ravens head coach told the media.
Baltimore trailed 10-0 after the first quarter but scored 20 of the next 23 points in the playoff contest, including rushing touchdowns from Lamar Jackson and J.K. Dobbins. In the first half, Jackson threw an interception that Tennessee capitalized on with a field goal and later the dependable Justin Tucker missed a 52-yard field goal. that would have pushed Baltimore away before the end of the second quarter.
"Not just because what was at stake, but because of the guys and what it meant to our team and to our guys".
The Titans defense did little to stop the Ravens.
Protectively, the Ravens were splendid, holding the Titans' 2,000-yard running back Derrick Henry to 40 yards on 18 conveys. The Ravens had 35 yards for 236 yards and two touchdowns and Tennessee had 22 carries for 51 yards (2.3 yards per carry) with no touchdowns.
Tennessee had won three of the previous four meetings between the teams - including a 28-12 triumph in the postseason past year - and looked on course to prevail again when they moved 10-0 ahead in the first quarter.
It, as well, was the Titans deleting a 21-10 lead in November to win 30-24 in additional time in Baltimore, where Tennessee players moved on the Ravens' logo at midfield. "It wasn't a disrespect thing". "They played great as well".
At the point when the game was finished, Jackson, rather than remaining on the field for standard postgame handshakes with the adversary, ran off the field, through the passage and into the Baltimore storage space, where he was later granted the game ball by Harbaugh.
