Baltimore Ravens vs Chicago Bears Hall Of Fame Game Recap
The Baltimore Ravens won their first preseason game at the Hall of Fame Game against the Chicago Bears 17-16. Tonight was the night for rookies and second year players to shine and they did.
Player of the game goes to Kamalei Correa who put up six tackles, an interception, a forced fumble and three sacks. The third year player from Boise st proved he can be a starter for the Ravens this season.
Hayden Hurst showed Raven fans tonight why they drafted him to be the Ravens starting tight-end tonight finishing his NFL debut with three impressive catches and catching a touchdown from Lamar Jackson.
Robert Griffin III proved himself that he can still play at the NFL level finishing the night with seven completed passes with 11 throws for 58 yards and a touchdown. He did throw an interception, but wasn’t his fault since Bershard Perrimen left the ball go right through his hands. Griffin showed he can throw in the pocket and run well just like he did when he won rookie of the year in back in 2012.
The Ravens playing in there first Hall of Fame Game was fun to watch being the first NFL game of the year with Ray Lewis doing his famous squirrel dance when being introduced. This game was a nice pre-season game to give Ravens fans a first glimpse of what’s yet to come this season.
Lamar Jackson was not as impressive as many hoped to see. He ended the night 4/10 only throwing for 33 yards and rushing for 28 yards. I don’t see this a big deal the offensive line he had wasn’t great and not a lot of NFL quarterbacks do well in their first preseason game. He seemed scared to throw the ball, but showed great footwork escaping sacks. He still has a bright future.
