Ravens Defeat the Bears Without Lamar Jackson

By

The Baltimore Ravens traveled to Soldier Field to take on the Chicago Bears and came out with a hard-fought win.

All week leading up to the game, quarterback Lamar Jackson was in and out of practice due to a non-covid related illness and it caught up to him as the star quarterback would be held out of the game. This came on the heels of leading wide receiver Marquise Brown also missing this game, giving Baltimore a challenge on the road. Backup Tyler Huntley would get the start for the Ravens, making his first career start in the NFL

The game was sloppy and low-scoring as the Ravens only gained two field goals to give themselves a six-to-nothing lead going into halftime. After halftime, Bears starter Justin Fields left the game with a rib injury and backup Andy Dalton entered the game and immediately made a difference. He threw a strike to wide receiver Darnell Mooney for a long touchdown to give the Bears a 7-6 lead in the middle of the third quarter. The Ravens would get a huge fourth-down stop on the Bears early in the fourth quarter to get the ball back to the offense around mid-field.

The Ravens special teams came up huge punt block to get the ball back to the offense in the fourth quarter. Justin Tucker would hit a 46-yard field goal to give the Ravens a nine to seven lead late in the fourth quarter.

The Bears would take the lead on a 4th and 11 heave up from Dalton to Marquise Goodwin to give the Bears a 13-9 lead. They would miss on the two-point conversation, but the Ravens would get the ball back with a minute, 40 seconds left in the game. 

The Ravens would get a break on a pass interference call on the Bears and Huntley would throw a dart to Sammy Watkins to get the Ravens near the endzone with a small amount of time left in the game. Huntley showed poise on the drive and would lead the Ravens to regain the lead on a rushing touchdown from Devonta Freeman to give the Ravens a 16 to 13 lead. It would be the final score of the game and put the nail in the coffin for the Baltimore win.

Baltimore would hold on to win a tight game in Chicago. They improve their record to 7-3 and will look to get another win when they take on the Browns next week on Sunday Night Football.
