In postgame interviews, Ravens players and coaches gave a number of reasons for being upset by the Titans. Lamar Jackson blamed himself. It was hard not to point to Derrick Henry, who barreled through Baltimore. But Earl Thomas waited until he could get onto Twitter to reveal the real reason why Baltimore, a team that looked unstoppable for so much of the season, fell.
The drake curse is real lol jk

The Drake curse. The loss came only days after Drake wished Jackson a happy birthday (which the QB said was 'pretty cool') and the team account even retweeted the birthday wishes.

Which, at the time, even injured safety DeShon Elliott seemed to think was a poor choice.
Nooooo tell Drake to leave LJ alone until after the Super Bowl brah...

With the loss, which is now being squarely pinned on the Drake curse, the Ravens now join a long list of athletes who can blame Drake for their loss, including but not limited to the Toronto Maple Leafs, Alabama football, Serena Williams and Kentucky basketball.
