Former Sooner Marquise Brown scores two touchdowns on first two catches

Former Sooner Marquise Brown scores two touchdowns on first two catches”

In a 59-10 season-opening rout of the Miami Dolphins, Jackson produced the best passer rating (158.3) in Baltimore Ravens history and Brown became the first player in National Football League history with multiple 40-yard touchdowns in his career debut. He led it to a record-breaking one. Brown, the first wide receiver selected in this year's draft, showed off his speed by recording the most receiving yards ever by a Raven in a first quarter.

And, boy oh boy, were they explosive.

The quarterback completed 17-of-20 passes for 324 yards and five touchdowns after being criticized for his inability to throw throughout the offseason. "Receivers did a great job of getting open, catching the ball, scoring touchdowns".

Brown "is fast", Jackson said in his postgame news conference. Jackson threaded a strike to Marquise Brown on a slant, and Brown raced 47 yards for a touchdown and a 14-0 lead.

Brown put his explosiveness on display early Sunday and made a loud opening statement, even if it did come against a shabby opponent. You're undoubtedly going to hear about how the Dolphins are awful and might be the worst team in the league.

5. It had no bearing on this game, but another injury for Jimmy Smith is worrisome.

Lost in the Ravens lopsided win was yet another injury to starting cornerback Jimmy Smith, who injured his right knee when linebacker Patrick Onwuasor rolled into him trying to make a tackle. There was a lot of time left in the game.

After one half of play, it looks like he was lying. The Ravens have outscored the Dolphins 137-16 in three meetings since 2016. With Smith sidelined, second-year cornerback Anthony Averett took over as the outside cornerback opposite Marlon Humphrey, and the Dolphins predictably went after him.
