SEE IT: Kevin Zeitler gets blocking reps in while wife was in labor

Ravens

With Ravens right guard Kevin Zeitler's wife in labor, protecting quarterback Lamar Jackson was still in the back of his mind. 

Zeitler's wife, Sara, posted a video of her husband getting some pass block reps in before she gave birth.

The former Cincinnati Bengal, Cleveland Brown, and New York Giant signed a three-year, $22 million contract with Baltimore in March ahead of his 10th season in the NFL. The former Wisconsin Badger allowed just two sacks during the 2020 season, but his Pro Football Focus grade of 65.9 was a career-low. 

Forming an impenetrable offensive line will be a crucial part of the Ravens' success this season, and Zeitler appears to have that importance engrained into the back of his mind. After getting a few hospital reps in, though, Zeitler turned into the supportive husband he is as his day was made with the birth of his child, Parker Lou. 

If the "Dad strength" phenomenon exists, opposing defensive linemen have another thing coming to them when lined up across from Zeitler in the coming months.
