Ravens top Chargers 22-10 to strengthen hold on playoff spot

Ravens hold sixth playoff spot and can still win AFC North.

The Ravens continued to surge toward the AFC playoffs with a 22-10 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers on Saturday.

Rookie Lamar Jackson earned his first 200-yard passing game. The Ravens' top-rated defense held the high-flying Chargers to less than 200 yards for the first time since 2014.

Jackson was 12 of 22 for 204 yards with a 68-yard touchdown pass to fellow rookie Mark Andrews. Jackson improved to 5-1 as the starter.

"I'm proud of our guys. So many of them stepped up and made plays," coach John Harbaugh said. "Our guys were winning the 1-on-1 battles and our coverage was real good."

Baltimore rookie running back Gus Edwards had 92 yards rushing on 14 carries. He also had a 43-yard scamper -- his longest run of the season.

Baltimore cornerback Tavon Young sealed the win with a 62-yard fumble return for a touchdown.

Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers was held to a 51.7 passer rating with a pair of interceptions.
