Ravens vs Vikings Reaction



Final Score: Baltimore 29 Minnesota 26

I had the opportunity to actually be at this game yesterday, and I have to say– I challenge you to find a better environment for football than an absolute snow day in Baltimore. It was electric. The beers were flowing, the Fireball was smuggled in, and everyone was like a giddy kid on Christmas throughout the entire game. 

Dennis Pitta being back on the field was huge. Most Ravens fans know the chemistry he and Flacco have on the field, and it couldn’t have come at a better time than the 1-yard TD catch on 4th and goal. Huge. This sparked what has been called the most insane final 2 minutes in NFL history. SIX lead changes. Jacoby taking a Kickoff back for a score. Vikings answering. Twice. 

Then, Joe cool came through to Downtown Marlon Brown for the final score of the game. This was Baltimore football. It’s never easy, but we get it done. Blue collar, bare knuckle. We’re still alive in hunt for the playoffs. 


PS: Adrian Peterson, yeah snowballs were being thrown. You’re playing in a football game with snow everywhere. Lighten up a little bit and build a snowman or something. 


Dennis Pitta returns to Ravens practice today


Pitta should miss at least one more week. If he can come back next week after (hopefully) a Ravens win, things could start looking up. This is a huge(I cant stress huge enough) upgrade from Dickson and Clarke. He’s a good run blocker and safety blanket for Flacco, the offense desperately needs him. When healthy, he finds seems in the middle of zones and can stretch the field vertically. This is very good news for the down but not out Baltimore Ravens.
