1. Ravens tight end Mark Andrews just had a historic season

Mark Andrews had one of the greatest seasons by a tight end in NFL history this season. He finished ranked all-time in receiving yards in a season, tied for second in receptions, and also had nine touchdowns.

What makes his performance this season so impressive is that the Ravens lost MVP quarterback Lamar Jackson to injury in Week 13.

Just like an elite player, when things around him got worse, Andrews only got better. With Tyler Huntley and Josh Johnson at quarterback, Andrews was still terrorizing opponents.

After the controversial two-point conversion against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 13, Mark Andrews recorded five straight 100-yard games.

Every opponent knew the ball was coming his way, but no one could stop him. Dominating the opposition was backup quarterbacks showed the world that Andrews has joined Travis Kelce and George Kittle as the best tight ends in the game.
