On Thursday night, the Baltimore Ravens faced off against the Green Bay Packers in the second preseason contest for both teams.
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was supposed to get the start, but was scratched at the last second with “back tightness.” While Green Bay didn’t have its starter on the field, Baltimore did.
Lamar Jackson got the start and ran for a ridiculous touchdown – dodging defenders at every step.
After Jackson left the game, former Penn State star Trace McSorley took over the offense.
It didn’t take him long to find a rhythm, as he hit wide receiver Chris Moore on a slant for a nice touchdown – his first in the NFL.
Check it out.
And there it is.

After struggling in his first preseason game, it’s a nice bounce-back play for the former Nittany Lions star.
As Robert Griffin III remains out with an injury, McSorley has a chance to prove he can be Jackson’s backup this year.
With throws like this, his case is looking pretty good. McSorley is 4-of-6 passing for 41 yards one touchdown and one interception on the night.
He needs to cut down on the interceptions if he wants to make a the Ravens roster this season.
Stay tuned for more.
