Ravens QB Lamar Jackson ‘not frustrated’ after loss to Chiefs

After a stellar regular-season performance and a big win over the Houston Texans in the Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs, the Baltimore Ravens looked like the team to beat in the postseason, with NFL MVP favorite Lamar Jackson leading the way.

On Sunday, the Ravens played host to the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs at M&T Bank Stadium, with the team favored to come out on top. However, Patrick Mahomes and company had other ideas, with Andy Reid’s squad firing on all cylinders and getting the best of Baltimore on their home field.

With the Chiefs now headed back to the Super Bowl for a second straight year, the Ravens have to go back to the drawing board and figure out what went wrong. Despite being blamed for the loss by many, Jackson isn’t frustrated after his poor performance via ESPN.

“I’m not frustrated at all,” Jackson said. “I’m angry about losing. We are a game away from the Super Bowl. We’ve been waiting all this time, all these moments for opportunity like this and we fell short. But I feel like our team, we going to build this offseason, going to get right, get better grind and try to be in this position again — but on the other side of victory.”

Even though Jackson tried to brush this one off, the soon-to-be two-time NFL MVP was clearly rattled in this game after being so calm and cool throughout the regular season and during the playoff game against the Texans.

It’ll be interesting to see how Jackson and the Ravens bounce back from this devastating loss and whether they can return to form as the league’s elite team because this loss may be one of the moments where a team can take two steps back rather than a giant leap forward.
