4. Making A Statement In A Comeback Win

The Baltimore Ravens didn’t know if Pitta was going to make it through the season. We were almost waiting for that other shoe to drop, for everything to go wrong. It seemed inevitable but the horrible situation never happened. In week 2, Pitta gave the football world a statement of a performance.

The Ravens were down 20-2 after the worst first quarter the Ravens ever played against the Browns. Nothing was going right. The defense gave up three big plays in the first 15 minutes of the game. Chris Moore dropped what would have been a touchdown pass. I repeat nothing went right.

Then the offense heated up and the Ravens came back. One reason the offense found its groove, was Pitta’s efforts. He had nine receptions for 102 yards in the game. He even had a 30 yard reception. Pitta found the open field and he rumbled his way for a big gain. Pitta came up with some huge catches, when the Ravens needed it most.
