Tyler Huntley lighting it up for the Ravens in Week 15
By Justin Fried
The Baltimore Ravens are loving what they’ve seen from quarterback Tyler Huntley so far in the first half. The former undrafted quarterback is lighting up a stout Green Bay Packers defense in Week 15.
And as a result, the Ravens have defied the odds through two quarters.
Huntley has connected with Mark Andrews for a pair of touchdowns helping the Ravens take a 14-14 tie into the half.
Andrews is making history in the process as he became the first Ravens tight end to top 1,000 yards with a six-catch, 95-yard first half, and the first Ravens player since Mike Wallace in 2016 to reach the 1,000-yard mark.
Huntley’s strong play has helped him put together a monster first half.
Tyler Huntley has ignited the Ravens offense in the first half
Huntley finished the first half 15-of-22 for 137 yards and two touchdowns in the first half leading Baltimore into the red zone on each of their first three drives. He also added six carries for 15 yards as well.
Despite fielding a team that resembles more of a practice squad than an NFL roster, the Ravens have remained competitive against arguably the best team in football. And Huntley’s play is a huge part of that.
A former college standout at Utah, Huntley made his first career starter earlier in the year helping lead his team to a victory over the Chicago Bears in Week 11. The 23-year-old filled in for an injured Lamar Jackson last week playing admirably in his place.
Even without Jackson, the Ravens are still very much in this game. They have no secondary, a decimated offensive line, and various other injuries up and down the roster.
Yet, they’re tied 14-14 at the half with the NFC-leading Packers. Tyler Huntley is quickly capturing the hearts of Ravens and NFL fans around the country.
