After one of the darkest two days in Ravens history, the “Purple and Black” came out and proved on a national stage that despite no matter what a team goes through when the whistle blows all the focus is on the game.
With all the storylines this week, fans say a win in Thursday night’s prime time game is exactly what the Ravens and the city needed.
WJZ-TV Sports Anchor Mark Viviano joined Glenn on Sports Rehab to weigh in on the Ray Rice suspension.
From Sunday’s game until today, the Ravens have been under a great deal of stress leading up to tomorrow’s game against the Steelers. “The Ravens have to be dialed in,” said Wilson. “The players are feeling stress, [but] not as stressed as the people involved or the people that have to make the decisions.”
The Ravens take on the Steelers Thursday night, and they’ll do so trying to avoid going 0-2 to start the season. Two divisional losses to open the 2014 NFL campaign would be a devastating hole, and they’ll have to go through a balanced Pittsburgh offense to do so. “They like to run the ball and have done so pretty well so far,” said Colony.
Before the dust even settled, businesses and individuals alike were reacting and taking action. Some of these reactions have made major headlines, while others have not. We found 5 reactions that really stood out to us.
