OBJ mentions how the Ravens are a resilient team that relies on the next-man-up policy. OBJ seemed disappointed that he didn’t get to play and had succumbed to the injury so early into the season. The WR is trying to get back on his feet and be resilient for the future that is ahead of him. He says that he is focused on controlling his emotions and energy and on what God has planned for him.

The 6-2 team has done an amazing job for themselves, except for OBJ, however, he participated in full capacity on Thursday, so things are looking up for him in the long run. However, even without him, the Ravens have done a fine job this season considering the record they currently have.

The flying Ravens

The Ravens are competing with some of the best teams in the league like the Chiefs, the Miami Dolphins, and even the Eagles. Though they are still to play these teams, it would be interesting to see how they deal with these tier 1 teams in the future. They won the last game against the Arizona Cardinals with a difference of a touchdown. However, a win is a win.
