NFL Playoffs: Justice Hill’s Career Game Helps Propel Baltimore Ravens to AFC Championship

John Harbaugh called Hill “a difference-maker” for Baltimore.

The Baltimore Ravens put a thumping on the Houston Texans in the AFC Divisional round last weekend, and Justice Hill had a big part in the win.

Hill took 13 handoffs for a career-high 66 yards and caught both of his targets for 11 more.

It was Hill’s fifth start of the year, and he led all Ravens running backs in rushing. Gus Edwards came in behind Justice with 40 yards on 10 carries, and recent addition Dalvin Cook took eight handoffs for 23. Quarterback Lamar Jackson carried the ball 11 times for 100 yards and two touchdowns.

But Hill’s impact went beyond the box score.

“I’ve told [Justice Hill]; he’s a supremely talented player, but his heart is even bigger,” said Ravens head coach John Harbaugh. “This guy … he runs so hard. His acceleration and his bursts are right up there at the top of the league.

“He gets the ball north, he has really good vision, he catches the ball and he pass protects. He’s a well-rounded back. I couldn’t say enough about him. He’s been a difference maker for us.”

The Ravens will host the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Sunday at 2 p.m. on CBS.

Other Cowboys Still Playoffing

Three other Cowboys are still in the postseason:

Tylan Wallace (Baltimore Ravens)
Malcolm Rodriguez (Detroit Lions)
Tay Martin (San Francisco)

Rodriguez played one snap on defense and 19 on special teams on Sunday in Detroit’s NFC Divisional round win over Tampa Bay. Wallace was ruled out of Saturday’s game with a knee issue. His status is unknown as of writing. Martin is on San Francisco’s practice squad and hasn’t played since Week 16.
