The Baltimore Ravens (6-3) won their third straight game and fourth in a row, defeating the New Orleans Saints 27-13 to extend their lead atop the AFC North.
The defence of Baltimore dominated the game, earning four sacks, including 2.5 by Justin Houston.
When the Ravens needed it the most, their defence delivered its most dominating performance of the season. The Ravens limited the Saints to 243 yards, the fewest yards allowed by New Orleans this season.
Because the offence is so injured, this was a timely effort by the defence. Lamar Jackson was missing Pro Bowl tight end Mark Andrews (shoulder and knee injuries), No. 1 wide receiver Rashod Bateman (foot injury, gone for season), and his top two running backs (J.K. Dobbins is on injured reserve with a knee injury and Gus Edwards was inactive with a hamstring injury).
