It’s a good thing that these drives are ending in points. There is actually a lot of good to point out for the starting unit. Lamar Jackson is 10-16 for 117 yards and a touchdown. That is about as good as you could hope for in exhibition games. Mark Ingram looked great in a short night of work against the Packers. Justice Hill looks ready to make an impact right away and the offensive line has played surprisingly well. The Ravens are getting positive strides from the offense. It’s time to make more strides. They have gotten themselves in scoring range multiple times. They have to take advantage of it when Jackson is in the game.
Jackson did have a touchdown run taken away from him against the Packers. You can say that it was a bad call until you are blue in the face, but the touchdown didn’t count because of a penalty. The Ravens have shot themselves in the foot in the red zone in the preseason. In preseason play that’s not a huge deal. In a regular season game field goals aren’t always enough.
