Tyler Huntley, QB

To the surprise of some, the Ravens have actually had a "competition" for the backup quarterback spot. While many believe it should be Tyler Huntley, without a doubt, it was Josh Johnson who got the start against the Eagles. In Johnson's first half, he threw for just 45 yards. By comparison, the Eagles had racked up 169 passing yards.

If you want a statistic to sum up Johnson's play against Philadelphia, here you go: at one point, the Eagles had run 40 offensive plays compared to Baltimore's 11.

Huntley, meanwhile, finished 8-for-11 for 88 yards, one touchdown, no interceptions, and a rating of 126.3. He also scrambled twice for 13 yards.

For those wondering, Anthony Brown finished just 3-for-8 for seven yards and an interception. That pick also happened to be returned for a touchdown. Brown did not look capable, in the least bit. If anyone is in real danger, here, it is Brown, who is entering his second professional season.

As Baltimore gears up for next week's preseason matchup against the Washington Commanders, Huntley should be in full control of the backup quarterback position, as he should have been all offseason long.
