The Baltimore Ravens secured a 31-24 victory over the Arizona Cardinals in a hard-fought battle last Sunday. At the end of the day, it's obvious that a win is a win, but this one shouldn't have been as close as it ended up being.
Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson had a bit of a sluggish offensive performance, tossing 27 passes but completing only 18 of them for 157 yards and a single touchdown. Gus Edwards carried the load (pun intended) scoring three touchdowns all by himself and thrusting the Flock to victory.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh acknowledged the team's less-than-crisp performance but praised their determination to secure the win, while Jackson indeed said that "a win is a win," adding "I feel like we need to put more points on the board."
"We have tough guys – guys who are willing to win and adapting to adversity, different types of weather, long flights, it's just crazy. But I believe our team, the sky's the limit for us. We just have to find a way to fight within all of that chaos."- Lamar Jackson, Baltimore Ravens
Interestingly, Jackson also said that the team has been able to come off a very hard stretch in the schedule (including a trip to London and other games played on the road) because Baltimore "has tough guys – guys who are willing to win and adapting to adversity, different types of weather, long flights, it's just crazy."
Jackson added "I believe our team, the sky's the limit for us. We just have to find a way to fight within all of that chaos."
The Ravens are facing the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday in Week 9, although it must be noted that they will do so back home and inside The Bank for the first time in half a month after going on the road last weekend to play the Cardinals in Mark Andrews' home state of Arizona.
