The New England Patriots pulled off a shocking upset Sunday night as they defeated the Baltimore Ravens, 23-17.
It was an impressive outing from a Pats offense that has scuffled for most of the season. Cam Newton threw for a touchdown and ran for another, but it was wide receiver Jakobi Meyers with the most memorable pass of the night as he tossed a 24-yard TD to Rex Burkhead. Damien Harris also was a star in the win, rumbling for 121 yards on 22 carries.
New England's defense was solid as well, and J.C. Jackson set a franchise record with his fifth straight game with an interception.
That makes it two straight wins for the Patriots, who improve to 4-5 on the campaign. The Ravens drop to 6-3.
