Ravens QB Lamar Jackson connects with WR Devin Duvernay for first touchdown of 2022 season

·1 min read

The Baltimore Ravens and New York Jets got their 2022 seasons off to a slow start. The first touchdown of the game did not come until late in the second quarter, with a quarterback and wide receiver duo that was expected to be a big part of Baltimore’s offense entering the season.

With 3:52 left to go in the second quarter, Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson completed a 25-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Devin Duvernay as the team’s first touchdown of the 2022 regular season. Jackson placed the ball in the perfect spot, while Duvernay made a spectacular catch.

Duvernay was expected to have a big role on offense after Baltimore traded away wide receiver Marquise “Hollywood” Brown to the Arizona Cardinals during the 2022 NFL Draft. Duvernay has showcased his ability both as a receiver and a return specialist, and will almost certainly have more opportunities in the end zone as a receiver moving forward.

The third-year receiver later added a second score later in the game.
