Two Ravens were honored for their roles in the Ravens’ fantastic finish to Sunday’s win over the Vikings.
Wideout Marlon Brown was named Pepsi Next Rookie of the Week after recording career highs of seven catches and 92 receiving yards. He also made the game-winning touchdown catch with four seconds remaining in the victory over Minnesota.
Brown beat out Bengals running back Geovani Bernard, Jets quarterback Geno Smith, Vikings receiver Cordarrelle Patterson and Buccaneers defensive end William Gholston.
Joe Flacco also received a weekly award for the winning touchdown, as he earned the GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Week.
The moment was described as follows: “Quarterback Joe Flacco threw a touchdown pass to rookie receiver Marlon Brown with four seconds left to cap a frenzied final two minutes and lift the Baltimore Ravens to a thrilling 29-26 win over the Minnesota Vikings. Despite playing in a snowstorm, the Ravens and Vikings combined for five touchdowns in the game’s final 125 seconds. The Flacco-to-Brown score finished a five-play, 80-yard drive that eclipsed all but four of the game’s final 45 seconds. The Ravens’ rally also included a 77-yard kickoff return for a touchdown by Jacoby Jones. The win was the Ravens’ third in a row and put the team on the inside track for an AFC wild-card playoff spot.”
