The Baltimore Ravens win over the Houston Texans will be a moment to celebrate just how good Lamar Jackson was. However, it was a full team effort, down to some really impressive performances from depth players who needed to step up in the playoffs. Who are those players on the Ravens that made plays that were unexpected?
3. The Baltimore Ravens got Justice Hill at his best for the playoffs
Saturday against the Texans was the best we have seen Justice Hill this season and potentially ever. The Ravens obviously have Lamar Jackson as their top rusher, but with J.K. Dobbins and Keaton Mitchell out, they have been missing the big play running back with explosive speed. Hill did not quite give that, but he outsnapped and outplayed Gus Edwards when it mattered the most.
Hill finished the game with 13 rushes for 66 yards. The 66 yards are his highest of the season. It was the second-best total yardage game, behind week 17 against the Miami Dolphins, when he had 112 yards, including 64 rushing. Hills's best game of the year was the 49ers, so his last three games have been the best of his season and potentially his career.
The Ravens have shown that they trust him, and he is rewarding them. They will continue to trust him, so do not be surprised if Justice Hil continues to outsnap Gus Edwards as the playoffs go on. They are getting the best out of him right now.
