Ravens’ 24-point quarter tied for No. 2 in playoff history

The Ravens shocked the Patriots in Sunday’s AFC wild-card playoff game in Foxborough, Mass., by scoring 24 points in the first quarter. That’s tied for the second-best first quarter in NFL postseason history.

The Ravens led 24-0 before the Patriots finally scored on Tom Brady‘s 6-yard touchdown pass to Julian Edelman with 11:23 remaining in the second quarter.

The Raiders hold the league playoff record for points in a first quarter with 28 against the Oilers on Dec. 21, 1969. The Chargers (vs. the Dolphins on Jan. 2, 1982) and Jaguars (vs. the Dolphins on Jan. 15, 2000) also scored 24 points in the first quarter of playoff games.

The Raiders, Chargers and Jaguars all won their games.
