The Ravens started their season with a humongous win over the Dolphins on Sunday night with a 59-10 lead, breaking the franchise record of points scored in a game.

Lamar Jackson led the Ravens in their win against the Dolphins with 3 touchdowns in the first 11 minutes of the game. Jackson’s first nine passes were completions, with 204 yards and four touchdowns. He went 17/20 on his passes with a total of 324 yards.

“Not bad for a running back,” Jackson said after being continuously critiqued on his passing.

The Ravens defense was just too much for Miami, and smothered the Dolphin’s offense, keeping them to 10 points in total. They had 12 quarterback hits, and showed no mercy on the Dolphins quarterbacks.

“We’ve got problems on offense, defense, and special teams,” said Dolphins head coach Brian Flores. “We’ll try to fix them all. We’ve got a lot to work to do from that standpoint.”

The Dolphins’ next game is against the New England Patriots.
