Here at Glenn Clark Radio, we always reflect on the Baltimore Ravens game in a more jovial manner.  In retrospect, we like to choose five players on the team who — depending on the outcome of the game — deserve a Pat On The Ass or Slap To The Helmet.

The rules are simple: pick two players on defense, two players on offense, and one “wild card” (an offensive player, defensive player, special teamer or coach) who stuck out from the pack.

After the Ravens overtime victory against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Glenn and Paul have some Pats on the Ass to hand out.

They will count down in sequential order before we name the ultimate prize — Two Pats to the Ass.  That one player who one pat just wouldn’t isn’t enough.

Without further ado:

Glenn’s Pats on the Ass:

5. QB Lamar Jackson

I understand the argument for him being higher on the list. He does everything. He’s superman. He’s truly unbelievable. BUT he struggled in the first half and the overtime interception (to be fair, a good play by Anthony Barr) was never going to be a completion and could have been a dagger. The standard is high, obviously. 

4. LB Josh Bynes

Not only was he a tackling machine, he also made some plays in pass coverage too. 

3. LB Tyus Bowser

He’s been setting the edge well this season but it was nice to see him a bit more truly disruptive as the game went on yesterday.

2. RB Devonta Freeman

There were so many good options that were left off the list entirely. Rashod Bateman, Patrick Ricard, even Devin Duvernay were quite deserving. But the Ravens finding real production out of a running back? That could be season changing. I’m not going to overreact because the Vikings’ defense was worn down in the second half and already depleted. But it’s hard to ignore six yards per carry. 

1. WR Marquise “Hollywood” Brown (two pats)

He was a monster. He totally took over the game and looked like vintage Derrick Mason. 

Paul Valle’s Pats on the Ass:

5. Justin Tucker

He didn’t do anything spectacular. He simply did what Justin Tucker does: He went out and made his kicks. We take Tucker for granted here in Baltimore, but if he misses any of those kicks yesterday, the Ravens probably lose. 

4. Tyus Bowser

I hadn’t heard Bowser’s name much this season, but against the Vikings he was disruptive on Sunday. It was a solid effort from a guy who hadn’t put many together this season

3. Josh Bynes

He had 11 tackles, 8 solo. Helped stuff a solid Minnesota run game whose stats were pad by one long run. The defense still needs a lot of work, but Bynes has been a stabilizer.

2. Hollywood Brown

9 catches, 119 yards. Thats a nice day for sure, but when you dig a little deeper, you’ll see Brown had just two catches for 13 yards in the first half. When the Ravens were down big in the second half, he stepped up with 7 catches for 106 yards. He has become Lamar’s most reliable target with the game on the line this season.

1. Lamar Jackson

If the Ravens had lost, Lamar would have made my “Slaps” list, too. He needs to play better in the first half as he time and time again misses open receivers. But with the game on the line, nobody has played better this year. He’s Baltimore’s version of Superman.
