The Atlanta Falcons look to keep their season alive as the Baltimore Ravens battle for a playoff spot.
Baltimore (6-5) picked their second win in a row and stayed alive in the mix of the AFC playoff picture after taking down the Oakland Raiders 34-17.
Lamar Jackson has provided a change of pace on offense the Ravens have needed, leading the team to their highest scoring total since Week 1.
Jackson completed 14 of 25 passes for 178 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions while adding 11 carries for 71 yards and one touchdown.
Gus Edwards eclipsed over 100 rushing yards for the second straight game, carrying the ball 23 times for 118 yards.
Baltimore's defense showcased why they are the NFL's top defense, sacking Oakland three times as well as returning a punt and fumble both for touchdowns.
The Atlanta Falcons (4-7) dropped their third game in a row on Thanksgiving night at the hands of the New Orleans Saints 31-17.
Matt Ryan was sacked a season-high six times while completing 35 of 47 passes for 377 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.
Atlanta's running game was absent against New Orleans as Tevin Coleman led the team with eight carries for just six yards, adding three catches for 17 yards and a touchdown.
Julio Jones, the NFL's receiving leader, had his sixth consecutive game over 100 yards, finishing with 11 catches for 147 yards.
The Falcons' passing game, led by Ryan and Jones, has been the team's lone bright spot this season ranking fourth in the league averaging (316.9 ypg).
