Rivalry Games. Hoover v. Spain Park. Alabama vs. Auburn. Baltimore v. Pittsburgh.
Before the the game, the Baltimore Sun was able to catch up with the Hoover alum to see how eager he was to dip in the Ravens-Steelers rivalry. “When I got up here, not knowing a lot about this organization, a lot of the first things I heard were, ‘Beat the Steelers,’ ” he says. “I realized right then this rivalry was something serious. It seems like the players turn it up a little bit. The coaches turn it up. So I’m excited. I think I kind of have an idea, but the way guys talk about it, I’m not sure I do.”
So how did Marlon and his Ravens perform Sunday against the Steelers in his new rivalry? In the first place duel, the Steelers were able to come out 26-9. This is the first time the Ravens have lost to the Steelers at home since December 2012.
Marlon added to his 43 snap count Sunday as he played in 28 defensive snaps and had 4 solo tackles in the loss.
Next up for the Ravens are the Oakland Raiders. The Ravens will travel to the Coliseum as the kickoff is scheduled for 3:05 CT.
In rivalry games, Marlon is 3-1 with the lone loss being Sunday. Due to Region alignments, Humphrey played cross-town rival, Spain Park, once as the Bucs won 20-0. During his Redshirt year at Alabama, the Tide won the shootout against the Tigers 55-44. In the two Iron Bowls that he played, he had a total of seven tackles. In 2015, he had five solo tackles and one assist while recording one tackle in 2016 before sitting out the second half with an apparent hamstring injury.
Good luck this week #29.
