Kamar Aiken has been a polarizing figure for the Ravens. In the absence of Steve Smith, Sr., Kamar has come out and truly played like a good substitute number one receiver. He's been ubiquitous, and has built a rapport with any quarterback under center. He's made some great catches and looks like a polished receiver. He even owns a streak that only Julio Jones and Allen Robinson can say they have as well. Yet some are still refusing to acknowledge the force that is Kamar Aiken, and instead call him a product of sheer volume.
Let's stop that nonsense.
In a game where he was the third-most targeted receiver, he still managed to be the most productive one. He turned in five receptions for ninety yards on just seven targets. This isn't out of the norm for Kamar either, as coming into the game, he had score twice in has past three outings and had the seventh-most catches in the league over that time span too.
Oh. He also makes catches like these too.
This catch and another one after it were crucial in moving the Ravens down the field to regain some momentum after halftime. Kamar's couple of catches essentially put the Ravens in field goal range, and the corresponding kick would give the Ravens half of their daily point total. Kamar's aggressive ability and tendency to attack the ball was what made this work.
In a game devoid of offense playmakers on the Ravens' side, Kamar certainly did his best against one of the league's best secondaries, "The Legion of Boom." It may have not seemed like much, but Kamar did his job and more in this rout.
