As broadcasters noted repeatedly as the Chargers' lead grew over the first three quarters, some of those Ravens' frustrations came out in various ugly ways, including loud booing from Ravens fans directed at QB Lamar Jackson, the youngest QB ever to start in a playoff game.
That happened. Down 20-3, Jackson finally settled down and threw two fourth-quarter touchdown passes to wide receiver Michael Crabtree to cut the lead to 23-17.
The chants came after the Chargers scored a touchdown and then converted a two-point attempt to go up three possessions.
But with 45 seconds to go, Chargers linebacker Uchenna Nwosu forced a fumble from Jackson to secure the win. It was fueled by a great defensive effort to shut down the Seahawks' running game, as well as Ezekiel Elliott racking up 137 yards on 26 carries.
That pretty much ended any hope the Ravens had of winning their first home playoff game since the 2012 season. Baltimore is projected to have almost $32 million in cap space (and will get a little more back if the team releases Flacco/other players), but pressing needs elsewhere (i.e., re-signing Mosley) could result in having to cut ties with another longtime veteran. I didn't play my game ... only toward the end.

The ideal performance from the Lilywhites who put a swift end to the League Two sides FA Cup dream in front of a sell-out crowd.
"I got to focus on the defence", Rivers said. Jackson's struggles did continue as the first four drives of the second half netted -5 yards. The Patriots beat the Chargers in the playoffs in 2007 and 2008 and is coming up against them in the post-season for the first time in 11 years.
Ingram came into the game with 43 tackles, seven sacks and an interceptions. "But I would love to be back, no doubt". The Chargers converted just three of 10 third downs.
Jackson fumbled on Baltimore's opening possession, but picked it up himself. The Ravens have the parts to make him successful, but sometimes the best, and most hard lessons in life to learn, come from failure.
But referee Clete Blakeman put a new twist on it, calling them "San Francisco" on the loudspeaker.
For all you "FAKE ASS" Raven fans bashing Lamar Jackson and wanting Flacco to play.
