Bills vs. Ravens live score, updates, highlights from NFL divisional playoff game

When not body-slamming through their folding tables, Bills fans have pounded upon them about where Josh Allen should rank among NFL quarterbacks amid a 37-touchdown season.

Despite his standout campaign, there’s a sense in Buffalo that he has yet to earn the national respect he deserves. He can affirm the outcry of his most vocal supporters in Saturday night’s divisional round game against the Ravens and 2019 MVP Lamar Jackson, one of the passers against whom people most often measure Allen. Allen and Jackson were selected in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Buffalo (13-3) was the more consistent regular-season team, but Baltimore (11-5) showed its toughness as it rebounded from three straight midseason losses by winning its final five contests.

Both Allen and Jackson claimed their first career playoff victories last weekend. The Bills beat the Colts, while the Ravens knocked off the Titans.

Bills vs. Ravens live updates, highlights

8:45 p.m.: FIELD GOAL, Bills. Not a satisfying conclusion to that drive for Buffalo given its starting field position and Davis’ drop, but that kick is still enough for an early lead. 3-0, Buffalo.

8:44 p.m.: Gabriel Davis drops a would-be touchdown pass on third down.

8:42 p.m.: Allen sells a roughing the passer call and gets what he’s looking for. First-and-10 for Buffalo at the Baltimore 11-yard line after the flag.

8:38 p.m.: The Bills will have great field position after a terrible punt of just 23 yards.

8:37 p.m.: J.K. Dobbins drops a third-down pass that would have easily moved the chains. Now the Ravens punt.

8:34 p.m.: Buffalo asks Allen to throw deep, but his pass goes 10 yards deeper than his intended target. Punt coming up.

8:31 p.m.: The Bills take a timeout to think about what they’ll run on third-and-6 from around midfield. They would love to keep their defense on the sidelines after Baltimore’s recent drive lasted than seven minutes.

8:25 p.m.: No good! The sack keeps Baltimore from threatening to move the chains, and kicker Justin Tucker clangs his 41-yard field goal attempt off the left upright.

8:24 p.m.: Jackson takes an 11-yard sack on first down.

8:22 p.m.: Ravens go for it on fourth-and-1 and get stuffed. But an offside call against the Bills gifts an automatic first down, negating what would have been a big defensive stand.

8:19 p.m.: Now it’s Lamar Jackson carrying for a first down. Baltimore, as usual, is emphasizing the run.

8:17 p.m.: Gus Edwards runs for 21 yards between his first two touches.

8:15 p.m.: The Ravens receive the opening kickoff, which sails through the back of the end zone for a touchback. We’re underway.

The Bills and Ravens will conclude the first of two days of divisional-round action. Packers vs. Rams takes place at 4:35 p.m. ET, and Bills vs. Ravens serves as the nightcap.

Prior to an afternoon start in the wild-card round, Buffalo had played four of its final five regular-season games at night, winning all of them, so this should be a comfortable start time for the Bills.
