By the Numbers: Ravens-Chiefs on Monday Night Football

Ravens

Football is a game of numbers, so when it comes time to break down the biggest game of the year, it makes sense to turn to statistics for help.

The Ravens and Chiefs will square off under the bright lights of Monday Night Football, pitting two of the best young quarterbacks in football leading the two best teams in football against each other.

In anticipation of the epic matchup, let's run through some key numbers provided by the Ravens ahead of their game.

29-1

Lamar Jackson's touchdown to interception ratio in his last 10 regular season starts. This is a laughably great ratio, and it's helped orchestrate the team's 14-game winning streak. It's also given him a 133.8 passer rating during that stretch.

108.9

Speaking of passer rating, this is Jackson's in the red zone during his entire career. It's the second-best mark in the NFL since he joined the league in 2018, behind only Drew Brees.

Jackson has 32 touchdowns and zero interceptions in the red zone.

9-5

John Harbaugh's career record on Monday Night Football. Of the 14 games, only two have come at home for the Ravens, both wins.

15

Since Lamar Jackson took over as the starter for the Ravens, they have 15 games with at least 200 rushing yards. Next highest on the list? The Titans, with merely five. The Ravens are, at least, tripling up literally every other franchise since November 2018.

28

Marcus Peters has nearly 30 interceptions since he entered the league in 2015, and nobody else in football has even 20. Stephon Gilmore is closest with 19.

 

Peters, of course, began his career in Kansas City after being draft in the first round by the Chiefs. He did pick off Patrick Mahomes when he faced his former team as a member of the Rams in 2018.

4-0

Lamar Jackson has never lost in prime time in his career, going undefeated through his first four regular season starts. Only one of these came on Monday Night Football, when he tossed five touchdowns at the Rams last season.

Overall, Jackson has shined brightest under the lights, with 12 touchdowns, zero picks and a 133.0 passer rating. He's combined for over 1,000 total yards in the four wins, with the Ravens averaging 36.5 points per game.
