Best of 2021

2021 marks PressBox’s fifth annual Best Of edition celebrating the top people, performances and moments of the year.

Best Fill-In

It’s not that Tyler Huntley set the world on fire when he stepped in for Lamar Jackson in November.

He was respectable, throwing for 219 yards against the Bears in Chicago. But when they gave up a late touchdown, the Ravens found themselves trailing 13-9 with just 1:41 left and would need some Huntley heroics.

Faced with a third-and-12 from Chicago’s 32-yard line with just 33 seconds left, Huntley rolled to his right and kept the play alive just long enough to find Sammy Watkins for a 29-yard gain.

They would score a touchdown on the next play to win the game and etch the former Utah Ute into Ravens lore.
