John Harbaugh considered benching Lamar Jackson in favor of Joe Flacco during Sunday's AFC Wild Card game, but defended his decision to stick with the rookie.

The Baltimore Ravens lost 23-17 to the Los Angeles Chargers. Jackson struggled mightily before throwing two touchdowns in the fourth quarter.

Jackson's rally ended with 19 seconds remaining at midfield, where he fumbled for the third time.

"In the end -- talk about the fourth quarter -- Lamar played really well in two-minute," Harbaugh said. "I don't think Joe would have played any better in two-minute. You have to say, based on that part of it [and] at that point in time in the game, it was the right decision."
