4. Veteran Ravens playing excellent football for the remainder of the season
Don't get me wrong, the more players perform to the peak of their talents, the better. That means that in a dream scenario both the aging veterans and the younger lads are doing what they must.
That being said, what about the likes of Jadeveon Clowney, Nelson Agholor, and Kyle Van Noy just to name a few? Sweet baby Jesus!
Lamar Jackson found Agholor on the second touchdown of the day hitting the veteran wideout after he got open in the end zone and hauled in a 12-yard pass to put the Ravens up 14-0. He didn't catch any other ball and didn't get any more targets, but that's all you can ask the vet for and we're pleased with it!
Van Noy, who was signed just a few weeks ago and with the season already started, put on a fantastic outing against the Lions. He racked up two sacks and led the Ravens' defense on that front while completing five tackles and two for a loss.
"Honestly–I'm not trying to be disrespectful–that's a [butt]-whooping. I say that in the nicest way possible," Van Noy said after the game. The vibes!
Clowney also got one tackle, as did Rock Ya-Sin and Ronald Darby. Odell Beckham, another of the team's veterans, finished the day with five grabs for 49 yards including a 20-yarder.
