The Baltimore Ravens knew that a win in the Hall of Fame game would be good momentum for their team regardless if it was the preseason or not. Thankfully because of Robert Griffin III and Lamar Jackson that was possible. Griffin III had a decent outing throwing for 58 yards, 1 touchdown, and 1 interception. Then Jackson entered the contest and threw for 33 yards, 1 touchdown, and 1 interceptions. Obviously with those stats it’s easy to see it wasn’t the most impressive offensive outing but the Ravens won the game and that’s all that matters. Make no mistake about it that’s big for Baltimore’s confidence and now they just need to keep building on that. Rookie Hayden Hurst showcased his talents a little bit hauling in a TD reception and proving he has a knack for getting open. Maxx Williams was the other guy who scored for the Ravens on a five yard touchdown grab. Tyler Bray actually played really well for Chicago throwing for 181 yards, 1 touchdown, and no interceptions. Chase Daniel on the other hand struggled a little bit for the Bears with a couple of turnovers (2 interceptions). Tanner Gentry and Michael Burton were the players who helped get in the end zone for Matt Nagy’s team. Gentry finished with 3 receptions for 19 yards while Michael Burton had 2 catches for 7 yards. Overall it was a sloppy game to watch. There was penalties called on safeties for making clean hits that shouldn’t have been flagged. The offensive execution as a whole wasn’t that good either. Still though it was nice to actually see a football game take place after all that time off and things are finally getting underway. It was a step towards getting football back in our life full time and sports fans have to be happy about that. You also have to give credit to the Ravens for getting the job done. It wasn’t easy but they pulled it out.
