Ravens hope Evans just getting started

Could wide receiver's 30-yard catch be a springboard?

January 18, 2012|By Edward Lee

Lee Evans’ 30-yard catch in the third quarter of the Ravens’ 20-13 victory over the Houston Texans in Sunday’s AFC divisional round was the second longest of his season and nearly accounted for half of the receiving yardage (74) he had accrued in the regular season.

More contributions like that from Evans – especially in the postseason – would be a huge benefit to the offense as it would forced opposing defenses to pay attention to another threat in addition to wide receivers Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith, tight ends Ed Dickson and Dennis Pitta and running back Ray Rice.

“It’s something that we’d like to see as we go forward here, trying to get that done,” Harbaugh said Monday. “We’re not going to stop trying to get that done. Like you said, seeing that play get made, you get excited. You say, ‘Hey, you know what? He’s certainly capable of making those plays.’ We’ve seen him make them his whole career. I think it brought a smile to everybody’s face. We’ll be looking forward to more of that.”
