John Harbaugh, head coach of the Baltimore Ravens, was visibly annoyed when asked if he would substitute quarterback Tyler Huntley with Anthony Brown during his side’s playoff game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. The two sides locked horns at the Paycor Stadium. 


Last week, with Huntley out for a mostly meaningless regular-season finale, rookie Anthony Brown got his first NFL start in a 27-16 loss to the Bengals.

The Ravens went 2-2 with Huntley as the starter and haven’t scored more than 16 points in a game since a loss at Jacksonville on Nov. 27, which was the last full game Jackson played.

Lamar Jackson, the quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens, was ineligible to play in the wild-card playoff game against Cincinnati on Sunday night due to a knee injury.

Tyler Huntley, who has been struggling with wrist and shoulder pain and has been restricted in practise over the previous week, served as his backup and played in the match.

Since he injured his left knee early on in a victory over Denver on December 4, Jackson hasn’t participated in practise. He stated on Twitter on Thursday that he was still unable to play because of his PCL sprain.

In last week’s 27-16 loss to the Bengals, rookie Anthony Brown made his first NFL start since Huntley was out for a largely inconsequential regular-season finale.

In the fourth quarter, Sam Hubbard recovered Tyler Huntley’s fumble 98 yards for a game-winning score, assisting Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals in their 24-17 victory over the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC wild-card game.

With around 12 minutes left, Huntley attempted to cross the goal line for the winning score while facing third-and-goal at the 1. However, Germaine Pratt stood him up, and Logan Wilson, a fellow linebacker, stripped him.

The defensive end ran out down the field for the longest fumble return for a score in NFL postseason history after the ball went directly to Hubbard at the 2. It was also the fourth-quarter go-ahead touchdown that was the longest in the postseason.
