Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth all but exhorted John Harbaugh not to go for it on fourth-and-a-long-1 from his own 43.
The Ravens were leading the Chiefs 36-35 and the Sunday Night Football crew figured it foolhardy to risk giving Patrick Mahomes the ball on the wrong side of the 50 and a minute to go.
So it's the day after an NFL game. Or the day before. Or the morning of.
And there are the coaches, reminding players about how damaging giveaways can be and how rewarding takeaways are. Call it the Turnover Topic.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens put running back Gus Edwards and cornerback Marcus Peters on injured reserve with knee injuries.
Coach John Harbaugh described the injuries as season-ending, non-contact ligament tears from practice.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — It took one series last weekend for J.K. Dobbins to injure his knee, ending his season.
That's the risk the Baltimore Ravens were taking by putting him on the field — and coach John Harbaugh understands the second guessing.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins is expected to miss the 2021 season with a torn ACL.
“Been down this road before,” tweeted Zac Hiller, Dobbins' agent, while retweeting an ESPN report about the injury.
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — J.K. Dobbins will undergo tests on his injured left knee Sunday after the running back left the Baltimore Ravens' preseason finale midway through the first quarter.
Coach John Harbaugh after a 37-3 rout of Washington on Saturday night said only that Dobbins would be evaluated.
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — J.K. Dobbins going down with an injury overshadowed the Baltimore Ravens making a little preseason history.
Dobbins injured his left knee, Lamar Jackson made his 2021 preseason debut and Tyler Huntley scored five touchdowns to help the Ravens rout Washington 37-3 Saturday to win their NFL-best 20th consecutive exhibition game.
John Harbaugh cared enough about his Baltimore Ravens tying the mark for the most consecutive preseason victories that he told players about it in the locker room after their 19th in a row.
“I believe everything in life has meaning,” Harbaugh said.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens put linebacker L.J. Fort on injured reserve Monday after he injured his knee over the weekend.
Fort left the team's preseason victory at Carolina on Saturday night in the first half.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Many of the Baltimore Ravens players weren't aware they'd made NFL history until coach John Harbaugh walked into the locker room after Saturday night's 20-3 win over the Carolina Panthers and told them.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens hope Sammy Watkins, Marquise Brown and Rashod Bateman can form the core of a rejuvenated receiving group.
Right now, those three players are having a hard time getting on the field.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Baltimore quarterback Trace McSorley is expected to miss a few weeks because of back problems.
The Ravens announced Monday they had signed quarterback Kenji Bahar, but McSorley's injury leaves Tyler Huntley as the clear top option to back up Lamar Jackson for the time being.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Thursday that rookie receiver Rashod Bateman was set to have groin surgery and should be back sometime in September.
That announcement came a day after Harbaugh said Bateman was expected to miss “a number of weeks” with a soft tissue problem.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Baltimore coach John Harbaugh says rookie wide receiver Rashod Bateman is expected to miss “a number of weeks” with a soft tissue leg problem.
Bateman was drafted in the first round by the Ravens this year, part of Baltimore's attempt to boost its passing game.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Lamar Jackson is back at practice, and Baltimore coach John Harbaugh expects the star quarterback to catch up pretty easily to where the rest of the team is in its preparation.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Lamar Jackson has been activated from the COVID-19 list.
The Baltimore Ravens announced the move Friday. The quarterback hasn't practiced yet during training camp.
Jackson's absence was an early jolt for the Ravens at preseason camp.
BALTIMORE (AP) — It goes without saying that if Lamar Jackson misses any significant time this season, the Baltimore Ravens will have all sorts of challenges on their hands.
With the star quarterback out at the beginning of training camp because of a positive COVID-19 test, the Ravens are now getting more of a look at who might replace Jackson in the event of an absence down the road.
BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens added some help for their pass rush.
The Ravens agreed to terms on a one-year contract with veteran linebacker Justin Houston. The team announced the move Saturday, as the Ravens were beginning their practice in front of fans at M&T Bank Stadium.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The coronavirus pandemic is still affecting the Baltimore Ravens. Star quarterback Lamar Jackson tested positive for COVID-19 and missed the team's first practice of training camp.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Lamar Jackson understands how Baltimore's passing game is perceived.
In particular, he realizes that big plays have been lacking at times.
“People are always saying we throw short, intermediate routes and stuff like that — 5-yard, 10-yard routes," Jackson said.
