Ravens fans boo Lamar Jackson, chant for Joe Flacco

Lamar Jackson

The Baltimore Ravens looked completely flat throughout the majority of their playoff game against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, and fans turned on rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson in the second half.

With the Ravens trailing 20-3 and unable to get anything going on offense, fans at M&T Bank Stadium could be heard chanting for Joe Flacco to take over early in the fourth quarter.

The chants came after the Chargers scored a touchdown and then converted a two-point attempt to go up three possessions. When Ravens coach John Harbaugh decided to stick with Jackson on the next drive, the boos began to rain down.

The Ravens won six of their final seven regular season games and surged into the playoffs with the help of Jackson, but they were a total disaster on Sunday. Jackson completed 3-of-10 passes for 25 yards and an interception in three-plus quarters, so you can understand why fans were desperate for a change. As for why the Ravens stuck with Jackson, that may have something to do with their future plans for Flacco.
