In the final two minutes of Ravens’ wildcard win 20-13 on Sunday, 15 defenders from Ravens Peters followed and stormed the midfield as many stepped on the tagline. The outrage came two months after the Titans gathered on the Ravens logo before the team’s final game, leading to a confrontation between Ravens coach John Harbaugh and his players.
“This is an emotional soccer game. Sometimes you’re acting out of feelings,” Ravens’ defensive ending Derek Wolf He said. “It felt like it was a good time to go ahead and do it – so we did. It was nothing disrespectful. It was a bit of team unity like we accomplished something as a team so we’re going to go there and take revenge a little bit. I don’t think it’s a big deal.”
Baltimore’s defensive end Calais Campbell“Respect is earned,” he, who bowed to the banner of the Titans, told NFL when asked about the gathering in midfield.
Peters finished hope of the Titans to return two minutes remaining before he took off Ryan Tannhill At the 40-yard crow line, the intercept returned 13 yards and then zapped back to midfield. He jumped on the emblem, dropped the ball there and yelled at the side of the Titans with his arms outstretched. Pro Ball Cornbeck Marlon Humphrey He sat on the logo and mid-back Patrick Quinn It waved at the side of Tennessee.
The crows were punished at 15 yards of mockery but had no effect on the match. Six Plays Later, Ravens Quarterback Lamar Jackson He knelt for the last time and walked off the field without shaking hands with the giants, waving his team-mates to do the same.
“I feel it was just disrespectful to see what happened before the game the last time we played these players, and they were standing on our logo and seeing them go in with our coach,” Jackson said. “It was just disrespectful, because we treat all our opponents with respect. There was no reason for us to shake hands with us and things like that. We would be the biggest guy, so we just got off the field. I feel like we were the bigger men.”
Offensive tackle from Tennessee Denise Kelly He doesn’t understand why the Ravens responded this way because he said the Giants met in midfield before matches throughout the season.
“I don’t know what this disrespectful thing came from,” Kelly said. “If that was what Harbaugh wanted to use to motivate them, I think it worked.”
The Titans’ coach, Mike Frappel, refused to go into details of the Ravens midfield celebration and not shake hands after the match.
“I train titans, not crows,” said Farabell.
Peters was not made available to reporters after the match, and Harbaugh was not asked about his players’ celebration.
“We just love to party,” said Humphrey, “You know what I mean? It was a good celebration, I think.” “Usually it’s the person making the play, you run to that person; this person eventually happened to be on the motto.”
