TOUCHDOWN! Chase Reynolds scores on a screen pass and the Rams now lead 24-21 with 2:40 left in the 4th quarter. It doesn't mean much but it will be interesting to see if Caleb Hanie can lead the Ravens down the field for a field goal or better. Would be a great way to cap off the preseason.
Marlon Brown was very highly recruited out of high school however never lived up to the hype at Georgia. He tore his ACL last November and looks to be 100% now, showing a great second gear on that last TD. He could be a dark horse for the Ravens this year if he survives the final cut.
