9 biggest winners from the Ravens’ preseason victory over the Titans
3. Makai Polk, WR, Ravens
The Ravens are really hurting at the wide receiver position at the moment, but those who did suit up on Thursday made the most of their snaps. One such player was undrafted rookie Makai Polk.
Polk finished with a team-high six catches for 43 yards and made a pair of very impressive grabs in the second half, including a one-handed one. The 21-year-old could push for that fifth or sixth wide receiver spot if he continues to string together positive outings.
2. Shemar Bridges, WR, Ravens
No Ravens wide receiver flashed more on Thursday night than Shemar Bridges. The undrafted wideout finished with four catches for a team-best 62 yards and a touchdown, flashing his size and physicality on multiple occasions.
The most notable of which came in the first half when Bridges used all of his 6-foot-4, 210-pound frame to shield away the defender, sky into the air, and haul in a Tyler Huntley touchdown pass.
Bridges’ name hasn’t popped up as much this summer, but he made plays when it mattered on Thursday and came away as one of the night’s biggest winners.
1. Isaiah Likely, TE, Ravens
Thursday night was the Isaiah Likely show, almost from the moment the game started. Likely hauled in four catches for 44 yards as he showcased exactly why he’s been the talk of training camp to this point.
On his very first catch, Likely juked out a pair of defenders to fight for about six extra yards and pick up a first down. A few drives later, Likely skied into the air and ripped the ball away from a defender in what might have been the play of the night.
The Ravens are excited to see what Isaiah Likely can do this season, and more standout performances like this one should go a long way toward helping him establish a consistent role in the offense.
