The Ravens loss to New Orleans in Week 7 is one of the more disappointing finishes.

Baltimore was by no means perfect on either side of the ball Youth Tony Jefferson Jersey , but they made enough plays to go toe-to-toe with Drew Brees and company. Baltimore jumped out a 10-point lead in the third quarter, which quickly disappeared as the Saints mounted a comeback. A potential game-tying scoring drive was thwarted by a Justin Tucker missed extra point. It was a crushing defeat. While the desired result was ultimately not achieved, the Ravens did have several impressive moments throughout the game. Check out some of them below and vote for your favorite! Michael Pierce fumble recovery: The Saints ran 20 plays on their opening drive and chewed up over 10 minutes of clock, thanks to two fourth-down conversions. New Orleans attempted another fourth-down conversion in the redzone, but the Ravens defense stood strong. Alvin Kamara juggled the pitch attempt and Michael Pierce came up with a huge fumble recovery to give the Ravens possession. John Brown 56-yard reception: The Ravens responded to a Saints touchdown drive with one of their own just before halftime, and it was all set up by another huge play from John Brown. Brown got open over the middle of the field and turned an intermediate reception into a huge gain. He nearly outran multiple Saints defenders, but was tackled just short of the endzone. Nevertheless, it was the largest offensive gain of the game. Lamar Jackson 1-yard touchdown run: Thanks to Brown’s reception, the Ravens found themselves on the doorstep of scoring with just seconds remaining before halftime. After several unsuccessful attempts at scoring Cheap Ronnie Stanley Jersey , Lamar Jackson took a direct snap and found the endzone off a read option play. It was Jackson’s first touchdown of the season, and hopefully won’t be the last. Jackson nearly scored against the Titans in Week 6, too. Mark Andrews 8-yard touchdown reception: The Ravens expanded their lead on the second drive of the third quarter, courtesy of a Joe Flacco to Mark Andrews connection in the redzone. Andrews found an opening in the defense and overpowered Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore, who stood no chance at stopping Andrews from in the endzone. John Brown 14-yard touchdown reception: With 24 seconds remaining and the Ravens trailing by seven points, Flacco and Brown hooked up for another huge play in the passing game. Brown somehow found himself wide open in the right corner of the endzone and Flacco hit him in stride. The touchdown would have sent the game to overtime if not for 鈥?well, you know. The reception was Brown’s seventh of the day and gave him 134 receiving yards.Ravens vs. Dolphins final: MVP, stock-up & stock-down Well, what do you know? The Ravens , per usual, beat down the Dolphins. Lamar Jackson added film to his preseason highlights and the defense forced more turnovers.MVP: Lamar JacksonThe rookie whupped up on the Dolphins, scoring both a rushing and passing touchdown.Lamar Jackson final stats: 7/10, 98-yards, TD, 3 rushes, 39 yards, RTDThe ceiling for Jackson is incredibly high. I can’t wait to watch this kids’ career unfold.Stock-upTim Williams — I’ve wrote about him every preseason game this year. He’s ready to contribute.Stanley Jean-Baptiste — Hard to make final roster cuts and keep him off the final 53. He’s come on strong this preseason and with Jimmy Smith’s four-game suspension I expect Stanley to stay on the team this year.Patrick Onwuasor — He is fighting with everything he has to stay the starting linebacker. In limited snaps tonight, Peanut sacked the quarterback.Kenny Young — Just as Patrick is fighting Brent Urban Jersey , Young is responding. He also tallied a sack in this game and played well in coverage.Anthony Averett — Another endzone pass breakup for the rookie cornerback out of Alabama. The depth for the Ravens at corner is thrilling.Chuck Clark — He did suffer a broken tackle, but the interception and his coverage has more than made up for it. He’s looking great as a rotational player with room to develop.Janarion Grant — He’s looking more like the Ravens starting return man. He’s looked more explosive than Tim White.Tim White — Though he’s taken a back seat to Grant in the return game, he shined in the receiving game with three catches for 70 yards.De’Lance Turner — A 65-yard touchdown run catches the eyes of not only your team, but clubs around the league.Kaare Vedvik — A 58-yard punt, a 24-yard field goal and 2-2 on PAT’s. He’s kicking and punting very well.Stock-downTony Jefferson — I didn’t see positive play from Tony this game. They ran cover zero, a blitz where it is 1-on-1 across the board, and for some reason TJ is playing off-coverage. It was a short-yardage passing situation with the tight end split out wide and I don’t get the purpose of him being off the line of scrimmage. Maybe it’s the play call and not on Jefferson, but it did give Mike Gesicki his first preseason catch and a Dolphins first down.Jaleel Scott — Not impressed with the rookie. He hasn’t demonstrated much in camp besides being a big receiver.Jordan Lasley — Both White and Grant are out-playing these rookies.Breshad Perriman — Nothing flashed on tape. Just two catches for 13 yards.Second-string offensive line — Bad blocks. Bad blocks everywhere. Yes, Turner broke off a 65-yard touchdown run with some great blocking Youth Tony Jefferson Jersey , but he only added another 10-yards with the other four carries. Also, look at the rushing totals for the following, Kenneth Dixon (5 rush, 2-yds), Gus Edwards (16 rush, 38-yds). One play can’t make up for the poor performance for the rest of the night.Robert Griffin III — A rough night for the backup quarterback as he was stuck with the second-string offensive line against the strength of Cameron Wake and Quinn. He couldn’t get any rhythm going and as a result I don’t believe he’ll be a trade asset.
