The goals were to let the backups play and learn Bo Horvat Jersey , and to be inspired. Missions accomplished.
The Ravens and Bears honored their great linebackers Ray Lewis and Brian Urlacher with some defense to make them proud in the Hall of Fame game that opened the NFL’s preseason Thursday night. Baltimore held on 17-16.
”Ray is the greatest linebacker of our time,” said 2016 Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson, who quarterbacked the second half for the Ravens. ”That was a big thrill and exciting stuff.”
Oh, there was a little spark of offense, some provided by Baltimore’s first-round draft pick. Jackson’s 7-yard touchdown pass to fellow first-rounder Hayden Hurst came after the Ravens’ defense recovered a fumble.
Chicago put together its best drive in the final minutes and journeyman Tyler Bray connected with Tanner Gentry for a 10-yard score to cap a 92-yard march. But the 2-point conversion pass fell incomplete.
Otherwise, D was the letter of the day: there were six turnovers in all, and 12 sacks, eight by the Bears.
”To represent Ray in this game to our guys meant even more,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said.
”It was a special moment for our organization,” noted new Bears coach Matt Nagy.
The teams exchanged tipped interceptions on the first two possessions of the preseason.
Chicago moved swiftly downfield only to have Chase Daniel’s pass to Josh Bellamy deflected to safety Chuck Clark at the Baltimore 6. He returned it 15 yards, then the Ravens replicated the turnover.
Robert Griffin III, attempting a comeback after sitting out 2017, had his pinpoint throw go off the hands of receiver Breshad Perriman, then off rookie cornerback Michael Joseph. DeAndre Houston-Carson dived to make the pick at the Ravens 34.
The Bears soon converted when Michael Burton caught a 4-yard scoring pass from Daniel.
Baltimore tied it, sparked by two big gainers by undrafted rookie running back Gus Edwards. Griffin found Maxx Williams for a 4-yard score.
”It felt great,” Griffin said. ”I can’t tell you how grateful I am to play the game again.”
Then Lewis’ old unit gave him a thrill. On the next play from scrimmage, linebacker Kamalei Correa sped 19 yards with an interception to the Chicago 9. But Urlacher’s former defense made him smile, sacking Griffin on third down to hold Baltimore to a 31-yard field goal by Kaare Vedvik.
Generally Johnny Unitas Jersey , it was a sloppy affair among backups marred by a slew of dropped passes, poor protection for the quarterbacks, and misthrows by those QBs.
But something Lewis and Urlacher would approve, the defenses hit hard and tackled well.
NEW COACH, OFFENSE
Nagy, of late the offensive coordinator in Kansas City, made his head coaching debut with the Bears. He has said his new offense is in the early steps of development, and it looked that way all night.
Of course, with backups playing it’s nearly impossible to gauge progress. But he was optimistic.
”The arrow is pointing up for us,” he said. ”We definitely took steps in the right direction.”
INTROS
Each of the seven inductees to the hall who were on hand – Terrell Owens is a well-publicized no-show – received a rousing ovation when they were introduced before the game. Lewis replicated his patented warmup dance for a few seconds, and Urlacher slapped hand with every Bears player lined up on the 45-yard line.
”Ray was on the field getting all fired up, doing his thing,” Harbaugh said. ”With both teams at the 45, I thought that was awesome, and then to see Ray come out, that was spectacular.”
Urlacher gave a pregame pep talk to the Bears in the locker room.
”It’s so funny to see,” veteran defensive lineman Akiem Hicks said. ”Growing up, you’ve watched these guys Wayne Gretzky Jersey , and you’re one of the guys now who people come up and ask for pictures and autographs. Then you see Urlacher come into the locker room and you get to see all these NFL football players turn into kids …
”It’s a phenomenal feeling.”
Also walking along midfield between the lines of Ravens and Bears were Randy Moss, Brian Dawkins, Jerry Kramer, Robert Brazile and Bobby Beathard.
Owens did make it onto the cover of the Hall of Fame enshrinement magazine, however.
At halftime, Hall of Famers Ozzie Newsome, the general manager of the Ravens, and Dan Fouts received their ”Rings of Excellence” from David Baker, the hall’s president.
HELMET RULE
The first application of the NFL’s enhanced enforcement of penalties for players lowering their helmet to make a tackle occurred early. Ravens linebacker Patrick Onwuasor was flagged for his hit on Benny Cunningham, earning a 15-yard penalty that helped set up Chicago’s first touchdown.
Correa got nailed for the same violation in the third quarter, but he also had a sack that forced a fumble in that period, and three sacks overall.
”It was great to see him break out,” Harbaugh said of Correa’s overall performance. ”His work ethic and attention to detail, to see it pay off like that, a coach loves to see it.”
NEXT UP
Bears: At Cincinnati next Thursday night.
Ravens: Host Los Angeles Rams next Thursday night.

Chargers tight end Hunter Henry tore his knee ligament while running an ordinary route during a non-contact workout on the opening day of organized team activities, general manager Tom Telesco confirmed Wednesday.
Telesco declined to confirm whether the Chargers will go back to Antonio Gates to fill the suddenly gaping hole in their offense.
Henry is expected to miss the upcoming season while he recovers from his knee injury, which dealt an extraordinary blow to the Chargers' plans more than three months before their opener.
The franchise's second-round pick in 2016 was slated to fill a major role in the Chargers' offense after catching 81 passes for 1,057 yards and 12 touchdowns over his first two seasons.
"I'm not going to minimize it: He's a Pro Bowl talent with Pro Bowl intangibles Eric Ebron Jersey ," Telesco said. "As bad as we feel about losing him, and as bad as the fans feel about it, Hunter feels worse. This team means a lot to him. He means a lot to us. It's going to be harder without him, but let me be clear: We will adapt and move on."
Telesco indicated the Chargers haven't decided how they'll adapt just yet, and he is grateful they've got a few months to come up with a plan.
The GM was entirely noncommittal about the possibility on every Chargers fan's mind: A reunion with Gates, the franchise's career leader in receptions and yards receiving, and the NFL record-holder for TD catches by a tight end.
"Just looking at where we're at right now, we've got to look at really all of our options and what are out there, and kind of take it from there," Telesco said when pressed about the possibility of re-signing Gates.
The Chargers publicly bade farewell last month to Gates , who will turn 38 years old in June. Gates, whose 30 receptions last season were his fewest since his rookie season with the Bolts in 2003, already said he hopes to play in the NFL again this season.
Last month, Telesco cited a desire to increase Henry's role in one of the NFL's best offenses as a prime reason to part ways with Gates after 15 seasons. Before he missed the final two games of last season with a kidney laceration, Henry emerged as a top target for Philip Rivers, combining his size and athleticism with improved route-running.
"He's taking it tough, as you'd expect," Telesco said. "He loves this team Colt McCoy Jersey , and we love him, too, and he wants to be a part of it this year. ... He feels like he let us down. I told him, 'Look, you did not let this football team down. You went out there, and you're practicing the way you always do, and these things happen.'"
These things seem to happen dismayingly often to the Chargers. Their recent history is littered with major injury problems for key players at nearly every position except quarterback, where Rivers has played every game since 2006.
The Bolts largely avoided debilitating injuries last year during their relocation season, and they barely missed the playoffs at 9-7 after winning nine of their final 12 games.
With Henry injured and Gates unsigned, the Chargers have exactly one tight end on their roster with an NFL catch: Virgil Green, an offseason free-agent signee from Denver, where he was used primarily as a blocker. Braedon Bowman and Sean Culkin also are back from last season's team, but neither has significant NFL experience.
"We have some young players on the roster that we think have a chance to develop," Telesco said. "As we saw today in practice, they got a lot of extra balls today. So we'll see if some of those guys can ascend."
