Lamar Jackson picked the worst possible time to throw his first red-zone interception.

Jackson was intercepted on a third-and-goal play in the third quarter of Saturday’s AFC divisional round playoff game against the Buffalo Bills. Taron Johnson made the interception a yard deep in the end zone and returned it 101 yards for a touchdown.

The interception plus extra point made it 17-3 Buffalo over Jackson’s Baltimore Ravens.

Before that interception, Jackson had 49 touchdowns and no interceptions in his career in the red zone.

That pick-six also marked the third 100-plus yard pick-six in playoff history.
