The Baltimore Ravens entered Sunday Night Football with a lot on the line. A win would keep them in the driver’s seat, as they would leave the game with the best record in the AFC.
A loss wouldn’t have been catastrophic, per se, but it would have hurt their chances to have a first-round bye in the playoffs. Thankfully, they were able to take care of business against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Zay Flowers is Him

This game featured a lot of positives for the Ravens, including the spectacular play of rookie, Zay Flowers. Flowers was the talk of the broadcast, and he caught the attention of several players across the NFL, including Tyreek Hill. Hill must have been watching the game, as he declared “Zay Flowers is Him” in a tweet.
Flowers finished the game with two touchdowns, one rushing and one receiving. He has quickly become one of the Ravens’ top pass-catchers, especially given that Mark Andrews is sidelined due to injury.
Because this game was on primetime, the whole world was watching as Flowers put together a big performance. Ravens have found something in their passing attack this season, a facet of the team that was questioned in the offseason.
Lamar Jackson has continued to hone his abilities as a passer, and players like Flowers are the beneficiaries of this improvement. Can the Ravens keep their winning ways going? Flowers needs to keep stepping up as a leader, as does veteran Odell Beckham Jr.
If the offense keeps their foot on the gas, this team could find themselves in a great position when all is said and done.
