After a pathetic first-half showing by the Baltimore Ravens, in which they trailed 20-7 at one point, Tyrod Taylor and the rest of the second-stringers mounted a fourth quarter comeback to win the game 27-23.
The impressive performance by the Ravens' reserves hardly makes up for the dismal showing by the starting offense. A game in which the first-team offense could only muster up seven first-half points provoked John Harbaugh to claim "that was the worst first-half performance I've ever seen."
Despite winning the game in the end, I imagine there is not a single smile in the Baltimore locker-room right now.
All the Ravens can really do now is take this game as a learning experience and move on. Hopefully we see a much stronger performance next week as the starters will play about three quarters of football and the 53 man roster begins to shape up.
As always, thanks for making Baltimore Beatdown your gameday website of choice and stay tuned for Jason's full recap later tonight.
