Mark Ingram II, Orlando Brown Jr.'s live reaction to Ravens' Week 3 MNF matchup with Chiefs was like all of ours

Mark Ingram II, Orlando Brown Jr.'s live reaction to Ravens' Week 3 MNF matchup with Chiefs was like all of ours

The Baltimore Ravens are chomping at the bit to right their wrongs after a disappointing end to the 2019-2020 NFL season. They'll get a chance to earn a statement victory early on in the upcoming season as they're scheduled to face the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs in Week 3.

When RB Mark Ingram II and OL Orlando Brown Jr. got the news about the primetime Monday Night matchup, they were physically incapable of holding back their emotions. 

Take a look. 

"Oooh let's go, baby!" Brown screamed at the top of his lungs. "Monday night in Baltimore, I've only been to a few games in my life there ... the city is live!"

Meanwhile, Ingram was flexing his muscles and dancing around in his chair before rubbing both his hands together and yelling, "Let's get it!."

Reminder: The last time these two teams faced off was Week 3 last season. The Chiefs walked away victorious, 33-28.

Lamar Jackson admits he cried after seeing himself on Madden 21 cover

Lamar Jackson admits he cried after seeing himself on Madden 21 cover

Like most of us, Lamar Jackson grew up playing Madden. He spent his childhood busting big runs with Michael Vick, carving up defenses with Peyton Manning and Tom Brady or dominating on the ground with LaDanian Tomlinson.

Most of us worshipped the players on the Madden cover. For an entire year they popped up on our TV screens as the game loaded, not to mention they were likely the most exciting player to use in that particular season. Jackson is one of the few who can say he's one of them, which is a reality he admitted brought him to tears. 

“They revealed to me the cover early,” Jackson told Steve Smith. “I don’t cry about stuff. I didn’t cry when I won the Heisman, I didn’t cry when I won all the other accolades. But when I seen the cover, I actually shed tears, like, ‘What the? It’s unreal.’”

Most players in the past would probably think winning the Heisman is more worthy of tears than being on the Madden cover, but that generation of players didn't grow up with the game as Jackson did.

This isn't to say the Madden cover is a bigger accomplishment than the Heisman trophy, but you can no longer downplay the significance it holds to players dominating the league now. 

When you hear Jackson's response to gracing the cover, it's easy to understand why he was able to shake off an underwhelming Madden rating. Ratings change, but the Madden cover won't.

Report: Ravens add Kenjon Barner to crowded running back room

Report: Ravens add Kenjon Barner to crowded running back room

The Ravens running back room has suddenly become a tad more crowded.

Baltimore has reportedly signed seven-year veteran Kenjon Barner, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

The addition of Barner likely has little to do with Baltimore's plan on offense, as Mark Ingram and rookie J.K. Dobbins are expected to carry the bulk of the Ravens' rushing attack.

Barner, a former star at the University of Oregon, spent the past year with the Atlanta Falcons as the team's primary returner. For Baltimore, bringing in a guy like Barner makes sense, as one of the team's primary return men from a year ago, De'Anthony Thomas, decided to opt-out of the 2020 season.

The signing of Barner is a low-risk, high-reward one for Baltimore. Rookie James Proche is also expected to be in the mix in the return game.
