The regular season ended with a landmark event for Titans – running back Derrick Henry reached the mark of 2000 yards on the take-off, which has not been the case since the 60s of the last century. This incredible event took place in the match of the final 17th week of the regular season. Tennessee beat Houston 41:38. Henry hit 250 ground yards and 2 touchdowns. Thus, Titans retained the first place in the AFC South division, finishing the championship with 11-5.
In the course of the regular championship, the Ravens put themselves in a difficult position. After a bad midseason stretch, Baltimore had to win the remaining 5 games just to get into the wild card round. And, which is typical, the team of John Harbaugh coped with this task brilliantly. The last on this list were the Cincinnati Bengals, which Baltimore smashed 38: 3. The result is 11-5 and a ticket to the playoffs. By far the main figure in the Baltimore Ravens lineup is quarterback Lamar Jackson. He has 2,757 yards and 26 passing touchdowns this season and, most importantly, 1,005 yards and 7 carry touchdowns. Paradoxically, Baltimore’s strength is in the quarterback, and the main problem is that the team’s attack is not very diverse, the clearance greatly prevails over the pass, which makes it difficult to win in the playoffs over and over again.
