While the Baltimore Ravens started out slow they sure did put on a show during the second half Thursday night at the Georgia Dome against the Atlanta Falcons.
After trailing to the Falcons by ten at half time the Ravens came back with a vengeance in the second half winning the game 31-17. The Ravens didn’t let the Falcons near their end zone in the second half, scoring twenty-four victorious points.
Some of the stand out young players were Curtis Painter, Rookie free agent Bobby Rainey (pictured), and Omar Brown.
The fourth year quarterback is starting fresh this year. After three years in Indianapolis, Curtis Painter is trying to find a new home in Baltimore. Working hard for his spot Painter completed seventy-six yards last night and three touchdowns.
Rainey who was excited to perform in front of his hometown crowd had twelve carries, three catches and an outstanding touchdown to start off his career Thursday night. Harbaugh was pleased with his game and his ability to carry over his practice reps to the game.
Omar Brown, a rookie undrafted safety, recovered two fumbles and had an unbelievable interception. Working hard to impress the coaches he was sure to leave an indent on their minds Thursday night.
The Ravens will have an open camp practice on Sunday, August 12, at the Navy-Marine Corps Stadium. This will be the Raven Nation’s last opportunity to watch a practice this season.
