3. Mark Ingram II
In the running for the third game ball was the entire defensive line, Mark Andrews and Gus Edwards. The winner of the third and final game ball is Mark Ingram II because he played such a pivotal role in the offense. Ingram was mostly bottled up in the run game yet he chipped way at the Texans with 13 important carries. The Ravens needed to stick to the ground game to keep the defense honest. Ingram made his big splash plays as a receiver out of the backfield yet he made the impact both ways.
Ingram had two receiving touchdowns in the game. One of them was an easy touchdown in which he probably could have scored on a light jog. The other score was an exciting rumble all the way to the end zone. He dove for the goal line and just got the ball across it. It was one of the most explosive plays of the game and it was one Ravens fans will never forget. He ended up with 85 total yards and a couple of highlights that we could spend all day playing on a loop.
The Ravens had of one of the best performances in franchise history so three game balls isn’t really fair. Mark Andrews is deserving because he had two touchdowns and a big chunk play that was a ton of fun to watch. Gus Edwards had a long touchdown run and finished with over 100 yards on the day. The defensive line was effective with space eaters that made the Texans one dimensional. Who would you have given the game ball? Honestly, the whole team deserves credit.
