John Harbaugh and Lamar Jackson's sideline conversation is everything Ravens fans need to see

John Harbaugh and Lamar Jackson's sideline conversation is everything Ravens fans need to see

At some point towards the end of the Ravens 49-13 blowout victory over the Bengals, Baltimore's head coach John Harbaugh walked over to his second-year quarterback sitting on the bench. 

Lamar Jackson had been replaced by backup Robert Griffin III after turning in arguably his best performance of the season. The QB finished 15-of-17 for 233 yards and three touchdowns while adding 65 yards and a video-game-like touchdown with his legs. Harbaugh went over to congratulate the potential MVP on a great performance.

But what started as Harbaugh telling Jackson he was proud of his leadership turned into a conversation between the two that will make any Ravens fan's eyes start to water.

"Most quarterbacks worry about their stats, but you're a leader," Harbaugh told Jackson. "I love the way you play. You don't flinch, you just attack. All you do is attack."

"It's all I know," Jackson responded.

"You changed the game, man," Harbaugh said.

"And we're going to keep it going," Jackson said.

Then Harbaugh delivered the kicker, a heartfelt message that put everything in perspective for the 22-year-old QB.

"Do you know how many little kids in this country are going to be wearing No. 8 playing quarterback for the next 20 years?" Harbaugh asked.

Jackson was thrilled by the praise but reminded his head coach where his priority currently lies.

"I can't wait to see it when I get older," Jackson said. "But right now, I gotta get to the Super Bowl."

The victory put the Ravens at 7-2 and just one game behind the New England Patriots for the top spot in the AFC. If Jackson continues to perform like this, Baltimore has as good of a shot as anyone to take home the Lombardi Trophy in February.

Report: Terrell Suggs angling to be claimed by Ravens

Report: Terrell Suggs angling to be claimed by Ravens

Terrell Suggs is currently available for 31 NFL teams, but there's reportedly only one team he wants to play for. 

According to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter, Suggs only has interest in returning to the Ravens, where he spent the entirety of his career before heading to Arizona this offseason.

Suggs was placed on waivers by the Cardinals on Friday.

Schefter's report states that Suggs has told some people he is unlikely to report anywhere other than Baltimore, showing a desire to, "finish his NFL career in the same city in which he started it."

Suggs is the all-time franchise leader in sacks (132.5) and games played (229) for the Ravens. This year, he has 5.5 sacks, seven quarterback hits and 23 tackles as a member of the Cardinals. It's his first season not in the purple and black. 

The Ravens rank 15th in the NFL with 34 sacks, and could use a pass-rusher like Suggs before the team's playoff push. 

Suggs' position to other teams is likely genuine, as the 37-year-old would certainly love to join the 12-2 Ravens before a playoff push. He was a member of the Ravens when they beat the 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII in 2013 and also has seven Pro Bowls and a Defensive Player of The Year award to his name as well. 

With just two games left before the playoffs begin, Suggs' wild ride from Baltimore to Arizona looks to be headed right back to where his career started.

Marcus Peters fined for beer-drinking celebration with fan

Marcus Peters fined for beer-drinking celebration with fan

Well, that's one expensive beer. 

Ravens cornerback Marcus Peters was handed a hefty $14,037 fine for drinking a beer in the stands with a fan to celebrate the game-sealing interception against the Buffalo Bills that give Baltimore its ninth win in a row. 

Peters, who came to Baltimore in a trade with the LA Rams that allowed them to clear space for Jalen Ramsey, has been an excellent addition to the Ravens secondary. His tip preserved the one-score win as Josh Allen attempted to thread the needle with a minute left.

Unfortunately for Peters, not much beer even made it to the All-Pro's mouth. He showered the beer all over his face to celebrate with the surrounding fans. 

Despite the fine, it was another memorable moment for this memorable Ravens season. 

Peters' emoji-filled response was perfect. 

Thankfully for Peters, however, although he'll still have to pay the fine, something good is coming from something so pure. Thanks, Bud Light.
