With just three seconds left on the clock in their game against the Denver Broncos, the Baltimore Ravens decided to play offensively instead of walking under the clock and ensuring victory. Turns out there was a valid reason to do it.
Before the final snap of the game, the Ravens had 97 racing yards. Lamar Jacksuntuk snaps, runs to the left, and slides to end the game as soon as he gets five yards out of the game.
The play did not affect the outcome of the game, but history was made with runs. The Ravens ran at least 100 yards to extend their growing streak to 43 games, eventually reaching those five yards, setting the Pittsburgh Steelers’ all-time NFL record in 1974-77.
Revenge coach John Harbaugh confirmed it was his call
At the press conference after the game, Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbagh confirmed that he had called for a final play to reach the milestone. He said:
“Oh yeah, that was 100% my call. It’s just one of those things that makes sense. I think as a head coach you have to be aware of your team, your players, your coach and that. It means to them it’s a very , A very difficult record to complete, and it’s a long-term record, so I wouldn’t say it’s more important than winning the game, for sure, and it’s certainly not, but as a head coach, you do it for your players and your coaches, and it They will last a lifetime. ”
Harbagh is making a valid point – these issues are important, and the players and coaches like it. It’s not a sign of disrespect for the Broncos at all, even the coach has confirmed that it’s no more important than winning the game.
The Ravens won a statement behind the record, beating then-undefeated Denver Broncos to hold their offense to just seven points. Lamar Jackson was incredible, throwing more than 30,000 yards against one of the best defenses in the league.
