"I look at them, and then I look at us as a team, and I don't think they're doing anything wrong," Bisciotti said on the "Ravens Rap" show. "I think a lot of this comes down to ...

While the Bears praised Mitchell Trubisky's operation of a controlled gameplan in his second NFL start, they're not losing sight of the special kind of athleticism and playmaking ability the rookie quarterback possesses. Trubisky's 18-yard third down completion to Kendall Wright in overtime seems to looks better every time you watch it on film.

Sunday, October 15th, 2017

It seemed like a perfect scenario for the Baltimore Ravens defense. Facing a rookie quarterback still adjusting to the NFL, all Baltimore had to do was stop the run to win. The Ravens knew what was coming from Chicago, and they were powerless to stop it.
