ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — The Ravens' playoff run has ended in the divisional round for a second consecutive season.

Baltimore lost to the Buffalo Bills on Saturday night, 17-3, and lost quarterback Lamar Jackson to a concussion on the final play of the third quarter.

Two plays before the injury Jackson threw his first career red zone interception. It turned out to be the game-changing play. Bills cornerback Taron Johnson picked off a pass intended for Mark Andrews in the end zone and returned it 101 yards to give Buffalo the 17-3 lead.

Bills wide receiver, former Maryland Terrapin, Stefon Diggs scored a touchdown earlier in the third quarter.

The weather in Western New York played a factor as well. Winds inside Bills Stadium impacted a pair of Justin Tucker field goal attempts (from 41 and 46 yards), causing both miss and hit the upright. Both teams were 1-for-3 on field goal attempts in the game.

Jackson was 14-24 for 162 yards passing. He rushed for 34 yards on nine carries.

Bills quarterback Josh Allen was 23-37 through the air for 206 yards.

The Buffalo defense sacked Jackson four times.
