On Monday night, Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens rallied from a 19-point lead to beat the Indianapolis Colts 31-25 in overtime
Despite being strongly favoured before the game, the Ravens team struggled to get going, as Indianapolis scored first on a 76-yard touchdown pass from Carson Wentz to Jonathan Taylor.
The Colts played the second half, in the same way, they started the first, with Wentz hitting Michael Pittman in the end zone to put the visitors up 16-3. Baltimore’s defeat seems to be all but assured at that point.

When a fumble by Jackson resulted in another Indianapolis score and a 22-3 advantage, Baltimore’s fate appeared to be sealed.
The fumble, although, was the catalyst the Ravens offence needed, as they scored touchdowns on each of their next three possessions to tie the game in the last minute of regulation.
Colts kicker Rodrigo Blankenship then missed a last-second 47-yard field goal, forcing the game into overtime, where Jackson completed the comeback with a five-yard throw to Marquise Brown.
Jackson threw for a career-high 442 yards and four touchdowns, while Wentz passed for 402 yards and four touchdowns.
