Even though it was a Tennessee home game, I believe our fans went crazy. That’s what I believe. Great atmosphere.”
However, Jackson also acknowledged the challenges faced by the Ravens, particularly in the red zone, where they struggled during the game. He said, “That’s what it was. You guys hyping it up a little bit, chased us a little bit. Just keep it down a little bit when we’re having so much success in the red zone. We just have to find a way, lock in more.”
He emphasized the importance of capitalizing on opportunities in the red zone to score touchdowns rather than settling for field goals. Jackson mentioned that this would greatly benefit their defense, which had been performing well and needed the offense to find the end zone more consistently.
When asked about the Tennessee Titans’ defense, Jackson acknowledged their strength, saying, “The defense is pretty great. They weren’t giving us no real chances of making passes. They played great. I wasn’t trying to run the ball. It was what it was. We still finished with the field goals.”
Despite the challenges faced by the Ravens, the team managed to secure the win, and Jackson’s courageous performance was praised by head coach John Harbaugh. Harbaugh expressed his pride in the team’s ability to overcome adversity, highlighting Jackson’s exceptional contributions to the game.

Harbaugh also shared his perspective on the team’s current progress in the season, emphasizing the importance of improvement and growth as the season unfolds. He acknowledged the potential for success but stressed the need to work on scoring in the red zone consistently.
With the exceptional energy and excitement generated by this year’s event, it is clear that London’s love affair with American football is stronger than ever. As fans eagerly await the NFL London Games in 2024, it’s safe to say that the passion for the sport in the UK is at an all-time high.
