The former Washington Redskins starting QB was not the only one one at that position that impressed, as rookie Lamar Jackson also stepped up in the second half. The 2016 Heisman Trophy winner had a seven-yard touchdown pass to Hayden Hurst, providing the little offense that this game featured from either side.
Griffin finished the day throwing 7-of-11 for 58 yards, but did have an unfortunate interception that slipped through the receiver's hands in the first quarter. Jackson was the third quarterback used, following Josh Woodrum's appearance, and was 4-of-10 for 33 yards and did have an interception himself. Woodrum was a perfect 6-for-6 leading in to halftime, throwing for 37 yards on the night.
Defense led the way to open the preseason, as the two teams combined for six turnovers and 12 sacks, eight of which came from the Bears' defensive line. It only makes sense that in a defensive-filled game, former Bear linebacker Brian Urlacher was honored before things got started, along with former Ravens defensive star Ray Lewis.
Both of these teams will play five preseason games this year, with the Ravens moving on to host the Los Angeles Rams next Thursday. The Bears stay on the road to take on the Cincinnati Bengals that same night.
