Baltimore Ravens rookie Lamar Jackson's debut as an NFL starting quarterback is a successful one.

On Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium, with Joe Flacco inactive due to injury, Jackson and the Ravens defeated the division rival Cincinnati Bengals 24-21. 

Jackson threw for 150 yards and rushed for an additional 117 on 27 carries. Baltimore running back Gus Edwards also contributed 117 rushing yards. It was the first time since December 20, 2008  that two Ravens rushed for over 100 yards in the same game.

In that game, Le'Ron McClain and Willis McGahee rushed for 139 and 108 yards respectively on their way to a win against the Dallas Cowboys, in what was the last game ever played at Texas Stadium. 

With the win Baltimore splits their season series against the Bengals and climbs back into second place in the AFC North Division with an overall season record of 5-5.

The Ravens will welcome the last place Oakland Raiders to Baltimore next Sunday for a 1 p.m. game.
