Omar Brown does it again

Omar Brown did it again.
In fact, you could kind of say he did it again and again.
Brown picked off one pass and recovered two fumbles in last weeks win over the Falcons. He came through again in Fridays 27-12 loss to the Lions at M&T Bank Stadium, recovering a fumble that stopped Detroit from scoring and snatching up an onsides kick the Ravens tried late.
Brown now has three recovered fumbles plus the onsides kick. He grabbed that ball with 2:10 left in the game and the Lions holding a 20-12 lead. That gave the Ravens a chance to tie the game, but they couldnt.
He recovered a fumble at the Baltimore 1-yard line that kept the Lions out of the end zone in the second half.

Still, bringing up the mention of the free-agent rookie defensive back and what hes been doing made coach John Harbaugh smile at his post-game news conference.
I think Omar got it right. The guy is always around the ball, right? Harbaugh said with a laugh. Its nice for these young guys to get an opportunity to see these guys, to see what they can do over the course of a long game like that.
As for Browns situation and chances of making the team, recovering three fumbles plus making a pick and grabbing an onsides kick has to help make someone notice. If a head coach smiles at a press conference after a 15-point loss yes, it was just pre-season thats still something.
Brown just seems to be one of those players who truly has a nose for the ball. Ed Reed is one. Its something that cant be taught. It just happens, and it seems to take place on a consistent basis.
Will Brown have a chance to make the team? If he does, performances like these certainly helped. Harbaugh was careful in what he said about Brown, but its interesting to read between the lines a bit.
Its been a long camp, he said. Its been a long off-season for them as far as OTAs and all that. The cream does start to rise to the top a little bit and shakes itself out. We have a lot of guys doing a good job of that. Pre-season is a little bit more of an individual type of an opportunity to evaluate that.

Ravens lower concession prices at M&T Bank Stadium ahead of 2018 season

Ravens lower concession prices at M&T Bank Stadium ahead of 2018 season

Enjoying a game at M&T Bank Stadium just became a little more affordable.

On Thursday, the Ravens introduced their new "Flock Friendly Fare," reducing the price of 21 of their most popular food and beverage items.  

The change comes as the organization focuses on revamping the fan experience in 2018. Fans will see an average of 33 percent in total savings and up to 53 percent savings on a single item.  

"As a lot of you probably know, after every game we survey fans to see how we're doing; what have we done well and what have we not done well. Over the years, one of the biggest criticisms we received was for the gameday concessions prices," Ravens President Dick Cass said on the team's website

Alcoholic beverages were all reduced by $1 with the addition of domestic 12 ounce beer for $5.

Chicken tenders with fries went from $11 to $7, while a slice of pizza went from $8.50 to $6. No single item will cost above $9.

On average, you will now be able to feed a family of four for $44 compared to $66.75 in years past. To see all of the reductions, click the arrow in the post below. 

In 2017, the Atlanta Falcons reduced their concession prices upon opening their brand new Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The Ravens, however, are expecting to lose $1.5 million in concession revenue due to the change.

Vegas odds against Lamar Jackson starting for Ravens in 2018

Vegas odds against Lamar Jackson starting for Ravens in 2018

Vegas has spoken and they are not optimistic about rookie Lamar Jackson starting under center for the Ravens in 2018.

Bovado, an online gambling site, has set the odds on how the top 2018 rookies will perform and they have Jackson getting 0.5 starts this season.

That number will come as a surprise considering the popular narrative that Lamar Jackson will be the Ravens' starter in no time. The team made it clear they are planning for life after Flacco when they traded back into the first-round of the 2018 draft to select the quarterback out of Louisville at No. 32

Flacco - who is entering his 11th season with the organization - is experiencing a decline in his performance of late, one that can not be put entirely on his shoulders as the team has failed in finding him valuable weapons to throw to. Nonetheless, Flacco's projected 2018 season is very much up in the air and it appears Vegas is betting on the one-time Super Bowl MVP to bounce back. 

However, the Ravens have failed to make the playoffs four of the last five seasons, and if that trend continues into 2018, the rookie could get his shot at flipping the script.

If you're a betting man, it could payoff to bet the over on Jackson. Low risk, seemingly high reward.
