Phrasing! Everyone loves phrasing!

Lamar Jackson and the Ravens fell at the hands of the slowly-churning machine that is the Tennessee Titans. In the process, Lamar Jackson lost the opening game of the postseason for the second year in a row, drawing some criticism for untimely turnovers despite putting up solid stats while leading a comeback attempt.

ESPN, of course, pointed out Jackson's gaudy numbers, only to delete said Twitter post minutes later with new wording.

The Twitter police are at it again! Posts may get deleted, but screenshots never die.

Jackson's numbers are impressive even in defeat, but it marks the second year in a row that the Ravens offense failed to put up much of a fight in the first half. If anything, that speaks to an inability to adjust on the fly.

Give the Titans credit for putting the clamps on Jackson early, despite allowing him to run wild late in the fourth quarter.
