The Baltimore Ravens completed Week 2 with a narrow 36-35 win against last season’s Super Bowl finalist, the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson threw for 346 total yards and three touchdowns, while his counterpart, the Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes, recorded similar stats with 343 yards passing and three TDs.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh was glad his team got the win.

“I couldn’t be more proud of our guys,” Harbaugh said. “I’ve said it before: it’s not perfect, it’s not pretty, but it is us.”

Jackson and the Ravens did not start very smoothly. They were down 0-3 initially, but the 24-year-old was able to rally the team behind him.

“I know my team is going to look at me,” Jackson told reporters. “If I’m out there just messing up, they’re going to be like, ‘What are you doing?’ So, I’ve got to do it for my guys. My guys have my back.”

Kansas City, on the other hand, was disappointed that they lost by one point.

In the third quarter, Mahomes connected with wide receiver Byron Pringle for a 40-yard touchdown pass, and Jackson answered back with a 42-yard touchdown pass to Marquise Brown, cutting the Chiefs lead to 28-24.

Mahomes then threw a 46-yard pass to tight end Travis Kelce for a touchdown on the next drive, but the Ravens bounced back with their game-winning rally.

“There are a lot of little things in games like this that [lead] you to get losses like this in the end,” Mahomes said.

Kansas City hosts the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, while the Ravens are facing the Drtroit Lions for Week 3.
