The Baltimore Ravens beat the New England Patriots and it’s a very big deal. Let’s take a look at who shined the brightest in this game:
The Baltimore Ravens beating the New England Patriots is huge for a number of reasons. The Pittsburgh Steelers have emerged as the team’s main competition in the AFC North, so a win helps Baltimore on that front. The Ravens just beat an undefeated Patriots team. Lamar Jackson showed why he is arguably the MVP of the NFL. The Ravens showed that they aren’t just a contender, but also a team that may be the class of the AFC. The Ravens are 6-2 and they just won their fourth straight game. The Ravens aren’t just good, they are on a roll.
This game was unforgettable and there was a ton of big plays. Before we award three players with a game ball, let’s talk about the honorable mentions in this game. Nick Boyle scored his first touchdown reception and this was a special game for that to happen. Boyle was targeted five times and he came away with a reception each time for 27 yards. Boyle was a good blocker and a reliable target, which is exactly what the Ravens ask him to do.
Marquise Brown caught a pass on the night’s first third down that allowed a fantastic touchdown drive to happen. He also had another big play on the opening drive. Earl Thomas had a big interception. There were more than three players who stepped up in a big way. With that being said, it’s time to look at the three players who get the game ball for the Sunday Night Football victory.
