Baltimore Ravens thrash Miami Dolphins: 3 game balls
Mark Andrews has lived up to the hype thus far. Following such an impressive rookie season that saw the former Oklahoma Sooner record 552 receiving yards and 16.2 YPR, expectations were pretty high for the 24-year old. A Pro Bowl seemed attainable, but moving into the top-10 conversation for tight ends seemed like the next step.
Based off his week one dominance, I’d say both of those goals will be accomplished this season. I was a firm believer in Andrews dating back to the 2018 NFL Draft, where he was my top-rated tight end prospect. When the Baltimore Ravens selected him, I was over the moon.
Andrews is the best tight end Baltimore has had since Todd Heap, or at least a healthy Dennis Pitta. The difference is Andrews is stupid fast for his build. He’s like George Kittle-lite for the Ravens.
To open the season vs. the Miami Dolphins, Andrews recorded eight receptions for 108-yards and a touchdown. A majority of that production came in the second-half of the game, and he looked unstoppable.
With the trio of Lamar Jackson, Marquise Brown, and Mark Andrews, opposing teams will have to respect the Baltimore Ravens passing attack in 2019. The offense as a whole looks scary and revamped, and we know what we’re getting with the defense and special teams. Overall, this 2019 edition of the Ravens looks to be something special.
