The Baltimore Ravens were defeated by the Buffalo Bills in Week 4 in a tough 23-20 loss, and veteran cornerback Marcus Peters was not happy about the end result.
Peters and head coach John Harbaugh exchanged some feisty words on the sideline right before the Bills’ game-winning field goal at the end of the fourth quarter. It’s unclear what the argument was specifically about, but it likely has to do with Harbaugh’s game management — Baltimore was up 20-3 against Buffalo in the second quarter but failed to score a single point in the second half of the game.
The Bills dominated the second half, outplaying and outcoaching a lifeless Ravens side, and Peters has every right to be incensed about the final score.
Ravens’ Marcus Peters publicly airs his grievances against John Harbaugh in Week 4
After the game, Harbaugh directly addressed the outburst:
Peters and the Ravens’ defense played an incredible first half against the Bills, holding them to just 10 points in the first two quarters.
Peters, for his part, recorded four tackles and one pass defended; fellow corner Marlon Humphrey notched an interception on the Bills’ opening drive.
Yet Baltimore needed more from Lamar Jackson and the offense to seal a victory, and in the end, missed opportunities killed the Ravens’ chances of winning this matchup. The momentum tilted toward the Bills late in the game, and Josh Allen and his talented receiver corps successfully completed the comeback and came away with the win.
For once, Baltimore’s defense didn’t lose this game, and the result should leave a sour taste in Ravens’ fans’ mouths. The team will want this one back.
