Lamar Jackson ran for 136 yards, the Ravens’ defense stuffed Derrick Henry and Baltimore avenged its playoff loss from a season ago, defeating the Titans 20-13 in Nashville on Sunday.

Baltimore, which lost to Tennessee in the divisional round a year ago and in Week 11 of this season, won a playoff game for the first time since 2014. The Ravens will play either the Chiefs or Bills next week, depending on the result of Sunday night’s Steelers-Browns game.

The Ravens held Henry, a 2,000-yard rusher in the regular season, to 40 yards on 18 carries.

On offense, Jackson led a rushing attack that gained 236 yards. The quarterback flashed with a 48-yard touchdown run that tied the game at 10 before halftime. The Ravens took their first lead, 17-10, on a J.K. Dobbins touchdown in the third quarter.

Jackson finished 17 of 24 passing for 179 yards with an interception in his first career playoff win.

The Titans took a 10-0 lead in the first quarter, but didn’t reach the end zone again. Trailing 20-13 in the final minutes, Tennessee’s last chance to come back ended when Marcus Peters intercepted Ryan Tannehill.

This was Tennessee’s first home playoff game since 2008 — a game that the Ravens also won.
