Packers vs. Ravens Preview
The NFL preseason is hitting the halfway mark for most teams and things are starting to get more serious as the season quickly approaches. Starters typically see more time in the second game of the preseason, usually maxing out their reps in the third game. Teams try to find a balance between staying sharp for the season and avoiding injuries.
Green Bay is looking to start the preseason 2-0 for the fourth consecutive year, having beat the Texans in their opener 28-26.
DeShone Kizer ran the show at quarterback for the Packers, going 8-of-13 for 102 yards and a score. Tim Boyle came in following Kizer, completing just three passes. However, two of those were for touchdowns. Green Bay star QB Aaron Rodgers didn’t see any action.
Much has been made about Rodgers’ relationship with first-year head coach Matt LaFleur. However, the QB tried to shoot down those rumors when talking to former teammate John Kuhn.
“It’s fake news, John. That’s the media cycle these days. Unfortunately the media, other than obviously yourself, there’s a lack of integrity,” he told former teammate John Kuhn.
The Ravens looked impressive in their first preseason outing, shutting out the Jacksonville Jaguars 29-0. It was the only shutout of the preseason so far.
“Listen, we’re just going out there and playing football. We’re having fun. We’re executing the defense, and it doesn’t matter who they play,” Ravens LB/DB Anthony Levine Sr. said. “Whoever they play, we play who we play, as long as the guys go out there and execute the game plan.”
Unlike most teams, the Ravens opted to play second-year QB Lamar Jackson, who showed improvement, going 4-of-6 passing the ball for 59 yards and one touchdown. He didn’t record a rush in the preseason contest, which was a rarity last season.
“I know I said it a million times last year, [but] just coming in as a rookie, it is a lot different,” Jackson said. “If you are like me, you’ve waited your whole life for this. But this year was like I already did it, so I just have to perform and come out and win.”
On the ground, it was Justice Hill leading the way for Baltimore. Newly acquired starter Mark Ingram did not take any snaps.
The NFL season officially begins on Thursday, Sept. 5 as NFC North Rivals Green Bay and Chicago face off.
The Ravens open the season against the Miami Dolphins on Sept. 8.
