Eagles vs Falcons Live : Everything you need to know about of Saturday game between the NFL and the Eagles vs Falcons Football game. The season is young, but stakes are high. Here’s what you need to know the game in your living room, at the bar, in the car or anywhere.
Week 1 couldn’t have gone much better for the Baltimore Ravens.A 59-10 drubbing of the Miami Dolphins featured the AFC North contenders clicking on all cylinders from the get-go.Offensively, there was plenty of contributions to go around. Marquise ‘Hollywood’ Brown and Mark Ingram made the most of their Ravens’ debuts, as the rookie receiver hauled in four receptions for 147 yards and two scores, while the running back acquired in the offseason ran for 107 yards and two touchdowns.
Even with those big performances, it was Lamar Jackson who stole the show on offense. Earning AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors, Jackson had 324 yards, five touchdowns and a perfect passer rating, only missing on three passes in his time on the field. Not to be outdone, the defense did their part as well. Limiting Miami to just 200 total yards and forcing three turnovers, the unit lived up to the hype in Week 1. Safety Earl Thomas III recorded an interception in his first game as a member of the secondary.
Now, Baltimore will look to continue the exceptional play against the Arizona Cardinals. A team that still has some growing pains, rookie quarterback Kyler Murray will be in the spotlight once again. After a rough first half against the Lions, Murray rebounded to finish with 308 yards and two touchdowns in a game that would end as a tie.
Coach John Harbaugh said several players who missed Friday’s Baltimore Ravens practice, including wide receiver Marquise Brown and tight end Mark Andrews, will play against the Arizona Cardinals this weekend.
Still, as a matter of caution, the Ravens listed five players as questionable for Sunday’s contest. It’s likely that cornerback Jimmy Smith, who suffered a Grade 2 MCL sprain in his knee last week, will be the only member of the Ravens’ roster to sit out of the home opener.
