Tucker's moved on, looks to Browns game

Justin Tucker will miss a kick at some point in his career. Really, its going to happen.
He cant make them all.
So far, the rookie is 7-for-7 on field goals and 11-for-11 on extra points. At some point, one wont go through.
The Patriots, however, might argue hes already missed.
But I digress.
Tuckers kicking like a veteran that the Ravens can rely on, and hes only three games into his NFL career. The former Texas kicker made the field goal that gave the Ravens their dramatic 31-30 victory over the Patriots Sunday.
But now, its a few days past that with the Browns looming on the horizon. Special teams coordinator Jerry Rosburg said Tuckers moving on to think about Cleveland on Thursday night.
I really didnt have to say anything to him about coming down, because hes a very level-headed young man, Rosburg said when talking to the media on Tuesday. He came to work yesterday and we talked about how to get better this week and when the next opportunity comes along, weve got to deliver.
Tuckers certainly delivered so far. In addition to the field goals and extra points, hes been solid on kick-offs, pushing opponents deep into the end zone if they decide to try and bring the ball out, which makes it easier for the Ravens to keep them pinned back there.
Hes already moved on to the Browns, and Tucker said hes preparing for this game just like the New England, Philadelphia or Cincinnati contests.
There a lot of history between these two teams playing each other, Tucker said when talking to the media this week. I really try for my own personal sake try to treat it the exact same way. The minute you start differentiating is when you start having slip-ups.
He admitted to enjoying himself Sunday night, saying that listening to 70,000 people screaming their heads off is always a good thing.
Hell get that chance again Thursday night.

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.
