TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — There was no panic in Baltimore’s locker room after the team’s pass-happy offensive approach mustered just three points against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Ravens shifted to what they do best after halftime, rushing for over 200 yards in the third and fourth quarters on the way to 27-22 victory that gave them consecutive victories for the first time this season.

Jackson threw for 238 yards and two second-half touchdowns, but the turning point came on the Ravens’ first offensive play of the third quarter when the quarterback ran up the middle for a gain of 25 yards to near mid-field.
