  Watch: Ravens' Lamar Jackson burns Titans with 48-yard TD run At least for one play, Jackson quieted the critics. With his team down 10-3 in the second quarter, Jackson burned the Titans on a 48-yard touchdown run. LAMAR JACKSON. 49 YARDS.

Jackson legitimately made four Titans defenders miss before pretty much outrunning the entire secondary.At some point, the Ravens will need to pass the ball to win on Sunday. In no way does that take away from the brilliant play you just saw above.

The world's top players -- minus China and Japan, who were forced to pull out -- have been bursting for a return to action after a build-up that has included long, lonely hours in their hotel rooms.

Olympic champion Carolina Marin posted a video of herself working out with a hotel towel, world number one Tai Tzu-ying used water bottles as weights and Denmark's Anders Antonsen practised serving shuttlecocks into his sneakers.

The Wild Card Round of the 2019 NFL postseason was well, wild. The Titans defense was also a Wild Card star, posting 19 points. Next up is the Divisional Round , where the top seeds (Ravens, Chiefs, 49ers, Packers) enter the tournament in my NFL Playoff Challenge rankings .

The Thailand Open is the first of three consecutive tournaments played in strict bio-secure conditions and behind closed doors in Bangkok, culminating in the World Tour Finals from January 27.

Badminton has been all but sidelined since the All England Championships in March, but players and organisers alike will be hoping for a less disrupted year as they gear up for the Tokyo Olympics starting in July.

However, a resurgence in Covid-19 cases prompted a partial lockdown in Bangkok earlier this month.

  Browns Pro Bowl OL Joel Bitonio's COVID case may be the saddest story of the NFL postseason Depending on his situation, Bitonio could conceivably be cleared by the second round of the playoffs. That should give the Browns even more motivation to win on Sunday, not that they needed it. Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.

The NFL , in typical fashion, forged through despite a global pandemic and finished on time without any delays. Did you expect anything different? In the AFC, the Bills ran over the Dolphins, backed over them and ran over them again, ending Miami’s playoff hopes and sending the Fins into the offseason

Athlon Sports' weekly rankings of NFL teams. The Denver Broncos and Atlanta Falcons head into the playoffs as the No. 1 seeds in the AFC and NFC, respectively. Meanwhile, the Kansas City Chiefs have locked up the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft. Here are our NFL Power Rankings following the NFL

The Bangkok tournaments have also been severely weakened by the withdrawal of China, who were grounded by travel restrictions, and Japan, who pulled out when men's world number one Kento Momota tested positive.

The singles draws now resemble Swiss cheese, missing six men and eight women ranked in the top 20.

- 'Asian wall' -

Taiwan's Chou Tien-chen and Denmark's Viktor Axelsen and Antonsen shape as top contenders in a men's competition which is without Momota and Chinese Olympic gold-medallist Chen Long.

Antonsen, who won the Denmark Open in October, is returning to action after contracting the virus early last month.

Tai, the women's top seed, let her T-shirt do the talking when it was emblazoned with the message: "Ready to win" during a training session last week.

The Taiwanese won her last event, the All England in March, and another victory this week would give her back-to-back titles nine months apart.

Zack Martin activated from IR, could return if Cowboys make playoffs

  Zack Martin activated from IR, could return if Cowboys make playoffs The Cowboys are already down Tyron Smith and La’el Collins for the season, but Martin’s return would be an obvious boon for their chances at a playoff upset — if they are to qualify. The team has won three straight games to move into this position. A Cowboys win over the Giants and an Eagles win over Washington would secure Dallas an unlikely NFC East title.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.

Former world champion Ratchanok Intanon leads Thai hopes and is aiming for at least a semi-final spot this week.

Marin, the first non-Asian player to win Olympic women's singles gold, said European players were hoping to make their mark.

"We know the Asian players are at the top every time. The Europeans are constantly working hard to break the Asian wall," she said.

"It's difficult but we'll do our best every time."

Thailand's badminton chief last month told AFP the tournaments would be the "safest in the world", and Badminton World Federation secretary general Thomas Lund said he was satisfied with the hygiene protocols.

"If a positive case is found, the player will be isolated and contract tracing will take place. Any player who has been in contact will also need to isolate," Lund said.

"We are confident we will be able to take care of the player and keep the rest of the players safe during these special times."
