FTF Racing’s Correjon continued his winter hot streak at Laurel Park, earning his third straight win over its main track with a record-setting half-length triumph in Sunday’s featured Super Bowl Starter Handicap.
When Lamar Jackson was taken No. 32 overall in the draft this year, Ozzie Newsome acknowledged they were “building for the future” with the Heisman Trophy winner. But, he added, “In order for us to win this year, we need Joe Flacco.”
Although the Ravens have given up an NFL-worst 11 sacks in the preseason, offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said the offensive line performed better in Thursday’s win against the Los Angeles Rams.
Although all eight sacks Ravens quarterbacks absorbed Thursday night against the Chicago Bears can’t be blamed solely on the offensive line, coach John Harbaugh said, “We’ve got to be better up front.”
The man with the keys to the Ravens' revamped offense was former NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Robert Griffin III, signed as a potential backup quarterback before the Ravens used a first-round draft pick on the newer model, Lamar Jackson.
Robert Griffin III started the preseason opener against the Chicago Bears on Thursday night and rookie Lamar Jackson, the team’s first-round draft pick out of Louisville, played the second half. And both flashed something positive.
