NOr it was Baltimore Ravens night. A debut that seemed sweet turned sour when Derek Carr took command of the match.
The ravens, led by the young quarterback Lamar Jackson, MVP of the 2019 season, These years have been characterized by starting the season in top form. Everything seemed to follow the course of the last few years, when, six minutes into the second quarter when Marquise Brown got a pass from Jackson and, along with the extra point scored by Justin Tuckers, put the 0-14 on the scoreboard in favor of the visiting team.
The Baltimore team had started the previous three seasons scoring at least 38 points and outscoring their rivals by a margin of 30 points or more. What’s more, the Raiders were not victorious in the first game in three consecutive seasons from 2000-2002.
Then Derek Carr, quarterback for the Raiders, took a radical turn in the game. In the first quarter, he failed to connect any passes of more than 10 yards in the six attempts he had. From that moment until the end of the game, overtime included, he would accumulate an 8/12 in that section.
With the match tied at 27, Carl Nassib achieved a fumble that returned possession to his own in the extension.
Zay Jones then picked up a 31-yard pass from Derek Carr to complete the one that is worst comeback for the Ravens in regular season since 2004. The Baltimore franchise accumulated a total of 98 consecutive victories in the regular season when they led by 14 or more points.
In this way, Lamar Jackson’s men are placed last in the AFC North division after the first week of competition.
