The Ravens were rewarded with a 33-7 victory at M&T Bank Stadium, following a 17-16 win against the Chicago Bears in the preseason-opening Pro Football Hall of Fame game last week in Canton, Ohio.
Jackson -- the No. 32 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft -- completed 7-of-18 passes for 119 yards. He also had five carries for 21 yards and a touchdown. Griffin completed 5-of-7 throws for 88 yards and a touchdown. He also had two carries for -2 yards on the ground.
Jackson's biggest throw came with six minutes remaining the first quarter. The rookie faked a handoff before he stepped back in the pocket behind the 50-yard-line. He scanned the field before flicking his wrist and firing a pass between the hashmarks to the 20-yard-line. Ravens receiver Chris Moore was in between several Rams defenders, but managed to jump in the air and adjust in order to catch the back shoulder throw. The 36-yard completion resulted in a first down.
After the game Jackson told reporters that he was "ticked off" that he didn't throw a touchdown.
The Ravens backup quarterback capped off the five-play drive by scrambling for a nine-yard touchdown run, giving the Ravens a 14-0 lead.
"I dropped back, everyone was covered on that play," Jackson said. "The line had ... they tried to get to me, I'm just going to say that. I made a guy miss and I tried to do what I do best ... tried to get in the end zone."
Griffin's scoring throw came in the fourth quarter on a 32-yard bomb to Breshad Perriman down the left sideline.
"Robert Griffin threw a dime," Perriman said after the game.
