Heartbreaking ending for the Bears.



Today's other game started out as a huge defensive struggle. It was 12-3 Chargers entering the 4th quarter.  The Chargers finally **** the Baltimore defense at the start of the fourth quarter, and built their lead to 23-3.  At the time, the Ravens offense had negative passing yards. They had actually lost more yards due to sacks than they had gained through completions.   The Baltimore fans were booing rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson, who had been completely ineffective. The Ravens stuck with Jackson, even though fans were yelling for veteran QB Joe Flacco to be put in to replace Jackson. One of the Ravens players went to the bleachers to argue with a belligerent group of fans. "Who do you think got us here? Number 8! Number 8! Don't be fairweather fans!"  As if magically revived by those words, Number 8 went out and put on a show in the final 10 minutes of the game. 

Jackson passed for about 150 yards and 2 touchdowns in the remaining minutes of the game, turning the 23-3 Chargers route into a 23-17 nailbiter.  The Ravens had a chance to win, having the ball in good field position with 45 seconds to play, but the Chargers defense managed to catch Jackson and force a fumble to seal the game.  Still, the Ravens turned a blow-out into a real adventure, and hopefully the fans felt bad for booing their player after the game.


Overall a pretty good weekend of action.

NEXT WEEK!
