RUNNING IT UP:

The BALTIMORE RAVENS (6-2) enter Week 10 leading the NFL with an average of 204.9 rushing yards per game in 2019. Last week in their win over New England, quarterback LAMAR JACKSON, whose 637 rushing yards are the most by a quarterback through his team’s first eight games of a season in NFL history, rushed for 61 yards and two touchdowns, while running back MARK INGRAM rushed for a season-high 115 yards. The team totaled 210 rushing yards in the victory – their seventh game with at least 150 rushing yards this season.

If Baltimore rushes for at least 150 yards on Sunday against Cincinnati (1:00 PM ET, CBS), they would become the first team since the 1976 PITTSBURGH STEELERS to rush for at least 150 yards in eight of a team’s first nine games of a season since 1970.

The teams with the most games with at least 150 rushing yards in the first nine games of a season since 1970:

TEAM SEASON GAMES WITH 150+ RUSHING YARDS
Pittsburgh 1976 8
New England 1974 8
Miami# 1973 8
Miami# 1972 8
Detroit 1971 8
Baltimore 2019 7*
*Through eight games
#Won Super Bowl

Overall, Baltimore has rushed for 1,639 yards – the most rushing yards through a team’s first eight games since the 2006 ATLANTA FALCONS (1,641), and the sixth-most through a team’s first eight games of a season since 1970.

In Week 6, Baltimore rushed for a season-high 269 yards against Cincinnati. If the Ravens rush for their season average (204.9) on Sunday in Cincinnati, they would move into the top five for most rushing yards in a team’s first nine games of a season since 1970.

The teams with the most rushing yards through their first nine games of a season since 1970:

TEAM SEASON RUSHING YARDS
Buffalo 1975 1,958
Pittsburgh 1976 1,886
Miami# 1972 1,868
