BALTIMORE –The Baltimore Ravens finished their opening drive on “Thursday Night Football” with a familiar sight — a Gus Edwards touchdown.
The running back took a pitch from quarterback Lamar Jackson and scored a 3-yard touchdown, putting the Ravens ahead 7-0 five minutes into the game.

It marked the fifth straight game in which Edwards has scored a rushing touchdown, which ties Willis McGahee for the third-longest streak in franchise history.
This was the ninth touchdown of the season for Edwards, who had nine rushing scores from 2020 to 2022. Edwards became Baltimore’s starting running back after J.K. Dobbins suffered a season-ending Achilles injury in the season opener.
