The Baltimore Ravens dominated the Miami Dolphins the moment they walked onto the field. It’s time to hand out three game balls to our star-players.
In the butt-kicking that was the Baltimore Ravens 59-10 victory over the Miami Dolphins, many players stood out (as you’d expect). There were very few weaknesses on display throughout the performance of all three phases of the game. The offense was potent, the defense was nasty, and the special teams were reliable.
However, it’s up to me to give out three game balls to players for the Ravens who deserve the most attention. I’ll tell you what, this is the hardest one I’ve had to do yet and *SPOILER ALERT* all three game balls went to offensive players for the first time of doing this piece.
There’s tons of credit that needs t go around, however. Earl Thomas and Marlon Humphrey both recorded interceptions behind their outstanding defensive performances, while Matt Judon and Patrick Onwuasor recorded sacks and dominated the front-seven (Pernell McPhee also nabbed himself a sack).
Mark Ingram and the Baltimore run-game was superb and ran strong behind a determined offensive line. Plenty of guys stepped up in the passing game, including Willie Snead and Hayden Hurst. We also can’t forget about Justin Tucker’s 11 points scored or Anthony Levine’s 60-yard scamper on a fake punt.
With all the credit being given to practically everyone on this team, I still had to pick just three performances to award… It wasn’t easy, but these three were big-time standouts for the Baltimore Ravens in week one of the 2019 season…
