The Baltimore Ravens suffered a heartbreaking loss at the hands of the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday night, losing 33-27 in overtime. It was a game that was up for grabs until the very end, and multiple crazy plays turned the tides in the direction of both teams. However, in the end Baltimore couldn’t put the pieces together to pull out a win.
The loss moves the Ravens to 0-1, and with a date with the Kansas City Chiefs looming large in Week 2, Baltimore will have to quickly forget about Week 1 and move on to begin preparing for one of the best teams in the NFL. When quarterback Lamar Jackson was asked about how difficult it is to move on from an emotional game like the one that the Ravens’ played in during Week 1, he said that the team has to move on and get ready.
“It’s regular season. For any game we got to move on quick. Everybody hates losing. The whole team hates losing. The coaching staff hates losing…But it’s going to be a quick turnaround though. You know, we got the Chiefs Sunday. We just played Monday Night, so we got to get ready.”
It was a hard game to come out on the losing end of, but as Jackson notes, Week 2 isn’t coming any slower. The team has to move on and prepare, despite their loss to Las Vegas being tough to swallow.
Baltimore will be on a short week as they gear up to play Kansas City on Sunday Night Football. It will be an extremely tough matchup, and the Ravens will have to be as ready as possible to play their best football.
