Ravens defense scores as L.J. Fort scoops up fumble and dives for TD

The Baltimore Ravens showed again they can reach the end zone without Lamar Jackson.

Ravens linebacker L.J. Fort picked up a fumble and returned it 22 yards for a touchdown, launching himself at the end to get the ball inside the pylon.

Baltimore continues a trend of being an opportunistic defense. The Ravens scored six defensive touchdowns last season, which led the NFL and tied for the second-most in franchise history.

Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey created the turnover, punching the ball away from Texans wide receiver Keke Coutee. It was Humphrey's fourth forced fumble in the last three seasons.

Fort picked up the loose ball and raced to the right sideline, where he was able to keep his foot inbounds before diving when he got inside the 5-yard line.

The play increased the Ravens lead to 20-7 late in the second quarter.
