The goals were to let the backups play and learn Baltimore Ravens Hats , and to be inspired.Missions accomplished.The Ravens and Bears honored their great linebackers Ray to make them proud in the Hall of Fame game that opened the NFL's preseason Thursday night. Baltimore held on 17-16."Ray is the greatest linebacker of our time," said 2016 Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson, who quarterbacked the second half for the Ravens. "That was a big thrill and exciting stuff."Oh, there was a little spark of offense, some provided by Baltimore's first-round draft pick. Jackson's 7-yard touchdown pass to fellow first-rounder Hayden Hurst came after the Ravens' defense recovered a fumble.Chicago put together its best drive in the final minutes and journeyman Tyler Bray connected with Tanner Gentry for a 10-yard score to cap a 92-yard march. But the 2-point conversion pass fell incomplete.Otherwise, D was the letter of the day: there were six turnovers in all, and 12 sacks, eight by the Bears."To represent Ray in this game to our guys meant even more," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said."It was a special moment for our organization," noted new Bears coach Matt Nagy.The teams exchanged tipped interceptions on the first two possessions of the preseason.Chicago moved swiftly downfield only to have Chase Daniel's pass to Josh Bellamy deflected to safety Chuck Clark at the Baltimore 6. He returned it 15 yards, then the Ravens replicated the turnover.Robert Griffin III, attempting a comeback after sitting out 2017, had his pinpoint throw go off the hands of receiver Breshad Perriman, then off rookie cornerback Michael Joseph. DeAndre Houston-Carson dived to make the pick at the Ravens 34.The Bears soon converted when Michael Burton caught a 4-yard scoring pass from Daniel.Baltimore tied it, sparked by two big gainers by undrafted rookie running back Gus Edwards. Griffin found Maxx Williams for a 4-yard score."It felt great," Griffin said. "I can't tell you how grateful I am to play the game again."Then Lewis' old unit gave him a thrill. On the next play from scrimmage, linebacker Kamalei Correa sped 19 yards with an interception to the Chicago 9. But Urlacher's former defense made him smile, sacking Griffin on third down to hold Baltimore to a 31-yard field goal by Kaare Vedvik.Generally, it was a sloppy affair among backups marred by a slew of dropped passes Baltimore Ravens Hoodie , poor protection for the quarterbacks, and misthrows by those QBs.But something Lewis and Urlacher would approve, the defenses hit hard and tackled well.NEW COACH, OFFENSENagy, of late the offensive coordinator in Kansas City, made his head coaching debut with the Bears. He has said his new offense is in the early steps of development, and it looked that way all night.Of course, with backups playing it's nearly impossible to gauge progress. But he was optimistic."The arrow is pointing up for us," he said. "We definitely took steps in the right direction."INTROSEach of the seven inductees to the hall who were on hand — Terrell Owens is a well-publicized no-show — received a rousing ovation when they were introduced before the game. Lewis replicated his patented warmup dance for a few seconds, and Urlacher slapped hand with every Bears player lined up on the 45-yard line."Ray was on the field getting all fired up, doing his thing," Harbaugh said. "With both teams at the 45, I thought that was awesome, and then to see Ray come out, that was spectacular."Urlacher gave a pregame pep talk to the Bears in the locker room."It's so funny to see," veteran defensive lineman Akiem Hicks said. "Growing up, you've watched these guys, and you're one of the guys now who people come up and ask for pictures and autographs. Then you see Urlacher come into the locker room and you get to see all these NFL football players turn into kids ..."It's a phenomenal feeling."Also walking along midfield between the lines of Ravens and Bears were Randy Moss, Brian Dawkins Customized Baltimore Ravens Jerseys , Jerry Kramer, Robert Brazile and Bobby Beathard.Owens did make it onto the cover of the Hall of Fame enshrinement magazine, however.At halftime, Hall of Famers Ozzie Newsome, the general manager of the Ravens, and Dan Fouts received their "Rings of Excellence" from David Baker, the hall's president.HELMET RULEThe first application of the NFL's enhanced enforcement of penalties for players lowering their helmet to make a tackle occurred early. Ravens linebacker Patrick Onwuasor was flagged for his hit on Benny Cunningham, earning a 15-yard penalty that helped set up Chicago's first touchdown.Correa got nailed for the same violation in the third quarter, but he also had a sack that forced a fumble in that period, and three sacks overall."It was great to see him break out," Harbaugh said of Correa's overall performance. "His work ethic and attention to detail, to see it pay off like that, a coach loves to see it."NEXT UPBears: At Cincinnati next Thursday night.Ravens: Host Los Angeles Rams next Thursday night.__Ravens dominate the Rams 33-7 in preseason blowout The Baltimore Ravens dominated the Los Angeles Rams in Week one of the preseason. Baltimore won 33-7, and it was a night to remember for Breshad Perriman, who has struggled for much of his career.Perriman finished with three receptions for 71 yards and a touchdown. Although his touchdown came late in the game, he displayed reliable hands and likely earned more snaps moving forward. After a rough performance in the Hall of Fame Game, Perriman bounced back. As for Baltimore’s first-team offense, they methodically drove down the field and scored a touchdown. Joe Flacco finished the night five for seven with 71 yards and a touchdown. He completed a pass to two of his new wide receivers: Michael Crabtree and John Brown. Flacco looked smooth on his only drive of the night. The Ravens’ first-team defense was on the field for two drives, and they recorded one three and out. Matthew Judon picked up a sack on the first drive Authentic Maurice Canady Jersey , while Terrell Suggs ended the second drive with a strip-sack. Although they were playing against the Rams’ second-team offense, Baltimore’s first-team defense looked dominant. They only allowed one first down. Lamar Jackson took the field on the Ravens’ second drive, and he had another up and down performance. He led one touchdown drive, which included a 36-yard reception to Chris Moore. Jackson capped off that drive with a nine-yard touchdown run. Later in the game, he almost threw an interception, but the defender dropped the football. Jackson looked more comfortable than he did in the Hall of Fame Game. In total, he helped put up 16 points, but it could have been 22 as Justin Tucker missed a 60-yard field goal and Kaare Vedvik missed a 53-yard field goal to end the first half. Jackson finished with 119 passing yards, 21 rushing yards, and one rushing touchdown as Robert Griffin III entered the game on the second drive of the third quarter. Griffin III continued to make his case for a roster spot. Despite dealing with drops, he was impressive. He finished with 88 passing yards and one touchdown. Griffin III’s most memorable drive was his last meaningful one, in which he threw a 32-yard bomb to Perriman for a touchdown.Defensively, the Ravens’ defense saw impressive performances from rookies Zach Sieler, who recorded a sack, and DeShon Elliott, who recovered a fumble. Maurice Canady also had a solid game as he recorded an impressive leaping interception, while Kamalei Correa and Bronson Kaufusi both had quiet performances following their magnificent showings in the Hall of Fame Game. The Ravens’ shutout was blown in the fourth quarter as Brandon Allen connected with KhaDarel Hodge for an eight-yard touchdown. Stanley Jean-Baptiste was in coverage on the play.Kicker Justin Tucker finished the game 2 for 3, while undrafted free agent kicker Kaare Vedvik went 2 for 3 as well. The Ravens are set to return to the practice field on Saturday as they will now prepare to face the Indianapolis Colts in Week two of the preseason.
