New England Patriots

New England Patriots

  • The New England Patriots lost to the Baltimore Ravens, 37-26, at the 2022 home opener at Gillette Stadium on Sunday. Read below for highlights from the game and a recap of our live updates.

  • Ravens Extend Lead, Possibly Ice Game

    Lamar Jackson just scored his fifth touchdown of the afternoon. The Ravens are now up 37-26, after Justin Tucker’s field goal attempt is surprisingly no good. But the Patriots are down two scores with just three minutes left in regulation.

  • Jones Intercepted In End Zone

    With a chance to cash in on a huge turnover by the Patriots defense, Mac Jones came up short. Facing a blitz on third-and-goal, he decided to heave the ball toward DeVante Parker, but it’s a little overthrown and easily picked off in the back of the end zone. Bad decision by Jones to force that ball up there, when he could’ve thrown it away and settled for a field goal. Now the Ravens get the ball back with a chance to chew the clock down and put the game away.

    The INT spoiled a great play by Jonathan Jones to strip the ball from Ravens receiver Rashod Bateman.

  • Patriots Score, Cut Deficit To 5

    The Patriots are still in this game. They’ve found the end zone again, this time with Rhamondre Stevenson, to get to 26 points. The two-point conversion was ruled no good, as Stevenson was ruled down by contact before he made a lateral to Mac Jones. It’s now 31-26 Ravens. Huge drive coming up for the Patriots defense.

  • END Q3: Ravens 31, Patriots 20

    The Patriots are threatening to start the fourth quarter. Another big catch by DeVante Parker, which followed up a nice run by Rhamondre Stevenson, has the Pats within striking distance of the end zone. After the Ravens outscored the Patriots 17-7 in the third quarter, this feels like a must-score drive to start the fourth. And by “score” we mean touchdown.

  • Ravens Pick Off Jones, Add To Lead

    Ravens kicker Justin Tucker is pretty good. He drills it from 56 yards to give the Ravens a 31-20 lead.

    Baltimore cashed in for a few insurance points off a Mac Jones interception. It looked like the quarterback didn’t see linebacker Josh Bynes undercutting DeVante Parker, as he forced it and Bynes reeled it in. It’s been tough sledding for the Pats their last two offensive drives, while the Ravens have been humming.

  • Ravens Score Again

    The Ravens have now gone on three consecutive touchdown drives since Lamar Jackson’s interception. Jackson did most of the damage himself this time, with a 38-yard run to start the drive off. Then he gave Devin Duvernay a chance to make a play 1-on-1 against Myles Bryant, and Duvernay came down with the ball. It’s 28-20 Ravens.

  • Ravens Answer Again, Regain Lead

    Do we have a shootout on our hands in Foxboro? Another impressive answer drive by the Ravens, who are back to a one-point lead. We’re back to where we were at halftime. Seven plays and 75 yards for the Ravens, who gashed the Pats on the ground and made a big play to pick up a first down on third-and-5.

  • Patriots Take Back Lead

    Q3, 12:14: The Patriots just went 75 yards in seven plays on an impressive drive to start the second half. Damien Harris finished off the drive with a two-yard touchdown run. Nick Folk’s extra point is good and it’s 20-14 Patriots.

    DeVante Parker, however, made the most noise of any Patriots skill player on this drive. He made two more catches for 61 yards to get the Patriots in position to score the TD. His second catch was a nice toe-tapper down the left sideline on a back shoulder.

     

  • HALFTIME: Ravens 14, Patriots 13

    Looks like this one could go right to the wire and come down to a few key plays, just like the Patriots’ first two games. A big turnover/TD combo has the Pats trailing by just one point, despite two strong touchdown drives by Baltimore.

    The Patriots’ defense is having an admirable afternoon. It’s hard to fault them on the two touchdowns, where Lamar Jackson and Mark Andrews connected for two scores. The first was a savvy play-call to make the Jackson shovel pass, and the second was just a dynamic play by an elite tight end. They’ve mostly kept the Ravens contained, and it’s a big reason why it’s a one-point game at the half.

    Offensively, the Patriots look solid. Not much in the way of self-inflicted mistakes. Mac Jones looks more comfortable in the pocket than he did the first two weeks of the season. They may not ultimately have quite enough to keep up with Jackson, but the Pats have come to play with a competitive, respectable effort so far.

  • Ravens Answer, Re-Take Lead

    Lamar Jackson threw it up to Mark Andrews, and his tight end did not disappoint. Andrews goes up and gets the ball over Devin McCourty, Randy Moss-style, for his second touchdown of the day. Incredible play by Andrews and an impressive answer drive to make it 14-10 Ravens.

  • Patriots Find The End Zone

    The Pats took full advantage of Lamar Jackson’s interception, turning a turnover into seven points. Mac Jones took the ball himself for a scramble up the middle and into the end zone. Nick Folk’s extra point is good and it’s now 10-7 Patriots.

    Mac Jones did the “Griddy” after scoring, if you’re into that sort of thing.

  • Patriots Intercept Jackson

    The Pats have the ball back at the Ravens’ 32-yard line after an interception by Jonathan Jones. Christian Barmore’s pressure up the middle appeared to either disrupt or rush the throw.

  • Patriots Turn It Over On Downs

    Q2, 9:19: With good field position and a chance to take the lead, the Patriots offense came up empty. A run up the middle on third-and-9 is three yards short, then a fourth-down pass to Kendrick Bourne is complete but for no gain. Potentially a big sequence in the game, as the Ravens get the turnover on downs to maintain a 7-3 lead.

  • Patriots Force Ravens To Punt

    A nice series by the Patriots defense has gotten the ball back to Mac Jones. Deatrich Wise came up with his second sack of the day to set the Ravens back, then on third-and-15, Christian Barmore and Matthew Judon pushed the pocket back while containing Lamar Jackson, forcing him to throw up an incompletion intended for Mark Andrews. Let’s see if the Pats can do anything with this.

  • Patriots Get 3 Points

    The Patriots started off the second quarter with a field goal. Nick Folk’s attempt is good to make it 7-3 Ravens.

    Mac Jones and the Patriots again moved the ball reasonably well before stalling out on a chance at the end zone. But a big play helped them get into position to score some points. That came in the form of a 40-yard dime from Jones to DeVante Parker, who has two explosive plays to his credit in this one after a very quiet first two games.

  • Patriots Off To Good Start On Second Drive

    Q1, 3:05: Two solid Rhamondre Stevenson runs have the Patriots cooking to start their second offensive drive. It feels crucial for the Pats to come away with some points, here, after Lamar Jackson and the Ravens just marched their way to the end zone.

  • Ravens Score First

    Lamar Jackson’s shovel pass to Mark Andrews finds the end zone, as the Ravens draw first blood. The Patriots now have to play from behind. It’s 7-0 Ravens.

  • Teams Trade Punts To Start Game

    Both defenses made plays on third down to force punts. First, Daniel Ekuale of the Patriots bats down a Lamar Jackson pass attempt at the line, then Ravens linebacker Patrick Queen beats the Patriots’ offensive line off the left side to sack Mac Jones. We’re scoreless just 4:26 into the game.

    The Patriots did have some promising moments, including a big gain by DeVante Parker on a first-down catch-and-run. But an illegal formation penalty set the Patriots back, and set the Ravens up to go for the sack.

  • Patriots Win Toss, Defer

    The Patriots won the opening coin toss and deferred to the second half. Lamar Jackson gets the ball first today.

  • Jakobi Meyers Among Inactives

    As was reported by Adam Schefter earlier Sunday morning, wide receiver Jakobi Meyers is inactive as he works through a knee injury. The Patriots will be without their team leader in catches, targets, and receiving yards to start the season.

    Meyers isn’t the only starter who’s out. Safety Kyle Dugger (knee) is also inactive, which puts the onus on Adrian Phillips and Jabrill Peppers to pick up the slack. For the Ravens, tackle Ronnie Stanley and running back Kenyan Drake are among the notable inactives.

    Here are the full inactive players for the Patriots and Ravens on Sunday:
