Takeaways from the Ravens 26-13 win over the Packers
By Ian Schultz
Antoine Wesley came off the milk carton in perhaps my favorite takeaway from last night. The undrafted rookie free agent had two grabs for 43 yards including an impressive 38 yard reception on a very nice deep ball from Joe Callahan. He still struggles to get separation but did a nice job of re-establishing himself as a threat to make the roster.
The milk carton this week features a trio of Ravens pass catchers in tight ends Mark Andrews and Hayden Hurst and rookie WR Miles Boykin. These are players that figure to be locks on the team so not as big of a deal on the milk carton this week as Wesley landing there last week. Would like to see all three bounce back however next week. Maybe we temper the expectations a bit on Boykin.
The Tavon Young injury is going to take some attention away from how poorly the pass rush looked. Matt Judon was a beast and hopefully this was a sign of things to come for the Ravens only legitimate pass rushing threat. The last part of that is a huge issue though. We didn’t see much from Tim Willliams, Tyus Bowser, Pernell McPhee, or Shane Ray.
The Ravens were bringing blitzes on a consistent basis and they still couldn’t get home. Top concern for this team right now is going to be having someone emerge as a counterpart for Judon and I am not overly confident that guy is on this roster.
