If you just see the final score, you might think that little good came out of the Baltimore Ravens losing to the Kansas City Chiefs this week. Surprisingly, it was a closer game than many would surmise out of the stat sheet and there was definitely a player of the game for the Ravens.
With another stand out week, this game's award goes to none other than wide receiver Kamar Aiken.
Even without his starting quarterback, or even the initial backup quarterback, most of the starting offensive line, two running backs, and multiple receivers, Kamar Aiken continues to show up. The season might be lost for the Ravens and their chances to get into the playoffs and potentially the Super Bowl, but there can be a lot learned in every game and especially in these final weeks.
The thing that we've learned lately is that Kamar Aiken might be the real deal for the Baltimore Ravens. Against the Kansas City Chiefs, Aiken was the guy that quarterback Jimmy Clausen looked to most, catching 8 balls for 128 yards and a touchdown. This is on the back of him catching 5 passes for 90 yards against the Seattle Seahawks. Both the Chiefs and Seahakws have some of the best defensive play in the league, making the back-to-back player of the week awards from us, even more impressive.
Maybe the Ravens have found their wide receiver of the future after all?
