The Baltimore Ravens, known for their impressive preseason winning streak, continued their dominance in a nail-biting matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles that ended with your superheroes snatching a 20-19 win for their 24th consecutive victory in mid-summer outings.
Despite the absence of star quarterbacks Lamar Jackson and Jalen Hurts, the Ravens put together their comeback effort while led by incumbent QB2 Tyler Huntley.
Although the Eagles made a late push aided by rookie QB Anthony Brown's intercepted pass for a pick-six, a critical defensive play preventing Philly from completing a 2-point conversion helped Baltimore put up another triumph to keep their streak alive for another week at the very least.
The secondary did its job but are the Ravens sure the room is deep enough?
Speaking after Saturday's preseason opener, Ravens' CB Daryl Worley confirmed the rumors about a full-time transition to play safety next season.
That wasn't bad news. What is bad news is the fact that Baltimore only has a few healthy cornerbacks available these days and even when they are all healthy it's not that the unit is oozing talent and depth.
The defensive trio of CBs Jalyn Armour-Davis, Damarion Pepe Williams, and Arthur Maulet missed the opener against the Eagles. Brandon Stephens and Kevon Seymour were the two main corners for the Ravens yesterday with Marlon Humphrey sitting and Rock Ya-Sin injured.
That, simply put, is not going to cut it through a grueling regular season that will bring more injuries with it along with hella-strong matchups in a loaded AFC.
The Ravens are actively looking to bolster the unit and they hosted veteran CB William Jackson III on Friday for a visit. It's unclear whether or not Baltimore offered him a contract on the spot, though.
Harbaugh himself has shown some concern about the nagging injuries affecting the secondary through camp and spoken about it after practices earlier this week.
There is still a month for the regular season to kick off, but time is running out for the Ravens to maximize the free-agent market potential and sign talented players before it's too late.
