“Monday Night Football” season opening loss against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson, the 2019 NFL MVP, had the ball in his hands with a seven-point lead early in the fourth quarter, but his fumble set up a Las Vegas Raiders touchdown that tied the game. It wouldn’t be the last time in the night that a giveaway would prove costly.
Though both teams would trade a couple more scores, deep in overtime, Raiders defensive end Carl Nassib strip sacked Jackson, giving Vegas the ball in scoring position.
Three plays later, the Raiders pulled out the thriller, 33-27, on a 31-yard Derek Carr touchdown pass to receiver Zay Jones.

OPINION: Las Vegas fans hit jackpot in Raiders’ season opener with boisterous performance
“That ticked me off,” Jackson said after the game of the fumbles. “I hate any type of turnovers. The first one … didn’t tick me off like the last one, just two hands on the football. I could’ve just taken a sack, if anything. But it happens in football.”
Jackson also took to Twitter to decry his fumbles in a message full of expletives.
