MARCEDES LEWIS became the first NFL player to score a hat-trick at Wembley as Jacksonville romped to their third straight win in London.
The tight end caught three touchdown passes from quarterback Blake Bortles in a crushing victory over a terrible Baltimore team at the home of football.
It was the largest margin of victory in a regular-season game in the UK since they began a decade ago, in the front of a record attendance of 84,592.
British rookie Jermaine Eluemunor had a day to forget as he made his debut for the Ravens just miles from where he grew up.
The 22-year-old from Chalk Farm was handed his chance due to injuries in his position after sitting out the first two games of the season.
But Eluemunor and his offensive line were overpowered by a mean Jaguars defence.
This was Jacksonville’s fifth game at Wembley and their third win on the spin after victories over the Buffalo Bills and Indianapolis Colts in the last two years.
Both teams locked arms during the US national anthem while some players kneeled in protest after controversial comments by president Donald Trump.

Trump called for those who took a knee in protest at racial injustice and police brutality to be “fired” by their teams, and his words have been condemned by US sports teams and players.
But the national anthem protest at Wembley was the only show of strength from a Ravens team who were rolled over.
The damage was done in the first half as two touchdowns and three field goals saw Jacksonville race into a 23-0 lead while the Ravens could only manage a miserable 15 yards of offence.
Bortles looped a 17-yard pass to tight end Marcedes Lewis in the first quarter for the first touchdown.
And the Jags quarterback found Allen Hurns in the second quarter on a five-yard touchdown reception as his side built a commanding lead.
Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco had a day to forget, and his second interception early in the third quarter all but ended his team’s chances as they fell to their first defeat of the season.
Flacco was picked off by Jalen Ramsey, and Bortles marshaled another march downfield before tossing another 30-yard touchdown pass to Lewis.
Lewis’ hat-trick was complete just moments later after another Baltimore turnover led to Bortles finding his tight end in the corner of the end zone for his fourth touchdown pass.
Rookie running back Leonard Fournette rammed in a late touchdown to complete the rout before a consolation touchdown reception from Baltimore tight end Benjamin Watson.
It was Jacksonville’s second win of the season as they bounced back from a home defeat by the Tennessee Titans last week.
They’ll be back in London for the next three seasons at least, and their growing UK fan base will hope for more dominant displays like this one.
