Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh is not afraid to be bold and go against the popular consensus with his in-game decisions. But his decision late in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 23-20 loss to the Buffalo Bills is pretty outrageous, even for him.
With the Ravens and Bills tied, 20-20, with less than four minutes to play and his offense facing a fourth-and-goal from inside the five, Harbaugh elected to keep his future Hall of Fame kicker (Justin Tucker) on the sidelines and go for a touchdown.
It backfired horribly, as Lamar Jackson was intercepted in the end zone, keeping the game tied.
Buffalo then drove down the field and kicked a game-winning field goal as time expired.
All of this enraged Ravens defensive back Marcus Peters who could be seen screaming at Harbaugh and needed to be restrained.
