It wasn’t always pretty and it was far from perfect, but the Ravens escaped Philadelphia with a victory in Week 6.
Aside from a few moments here and there, Baltimore’s offense was rather devoid of many big plays. However, there were a few noteworthy highlights that stand out — on both sides of the ball.
Check out the top plays from yesterday’s win and vote for your favorite in the polls below!
Nick Boyle 7-yard touchdown reception: On the ninth play of the Ravens opening offensive possession Lamar Jackson capped off a strong start with a 7-yard dish to TE Nick Boyle for a touchdown. In a backyard football-esque play, Jackson squeezed the ball into Boyle after a series of fakes and Boyle did a nice job of making himself available. To make the play even better, Boyle broke out an interesting celebration in the end zone.
DeShon Elliott forced fumble: For the first time in his career, DeShon Elliott found himself in the turnover column on Sunday. It happened on this play late in the first quarter, when Elliott stripped Carson Wentz of the football just before his knee touched the ground. This gave the Ravens offense the ball in scoring position and also pushed Baltimore’s streak of consecutive games with turnovers to 19. Elliott had another forced fumble later in the game.
Gus Edwards 7-yard rushing touchdown: The “Gus Bus” rolled into the end zone for the first time this season against the Eagles. Following Elliott’s forced fumble, the Ravens ran four plays before facing a 3rd-&-1 situation just outside the end zone. They called the number of Edwards, who might be the king of converting on third-and-short downs at this point.
“Let Gus Cook.”
Lamar Jackson 24-yard rush: On the Ravens first drive of the second half, two quick penalties pushed Baltimore back seven yards. Facing a 2nd-&-17 is an unfavorable situation more often than not but when Lamar Jackson can do things like this, all is well. Jackson surveyed downfield before taking off out of the pocket, wheeling his way to a 24-yard gain.
Lamar Jackson 37-yard rushing touchdown: Go back to Week 4 and watch Jackson’s 50-yard touchdown run against Washington. Then, watch the play above. After that, go back and watch them both again — because they’re both just awesome.
2PT conversion stop: Bend but don’t break.
