Due to a torn right pectoral muscle, Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey is out for the remainder of the season. He can only be a spectator in Baltimore’s Week 15 contest against the Green Bay Packers from the sideline. So far, the two-time Pro Bowler is liking what he sees an awful lot.
Lamar Jackson was also sidelined with injury so Tyler Huntley — or, Snoop Dogg, if you ask NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport — got the start under center for the Ravens. He threw two touchdowns to Mark Andrews in the first half. Both the first and second catches were impressive grabs. Andrews tallied six catches for 95 yards in the first half.
Mark Andrews AGAIN.

Jackson was thrilled to see the Huntley-to-Andrews connection working so well. So was Humphrey, who boldly declared Andrews was the best tight end in the NFL.
Stop playing with the Best TE in the League

Travis Kelce and George Kittle would probably like a word with this tweet. While Andrews is certainly one of the better tight ends in the game, those two have a leg up, maybe even two legs, on the rest of the competition.
The argument could be made, though, that Andrews is having one of the very best seasons for a tight end in 2021. The Ravens’ leading receiver ranks second in his position in receiving yards and catches (behind Kelce) and fifth in receiving touchdowns. Kelce, again, has him beat there.
Despite those stats, Humphrey will likely stick with his guy. And since Andrews is still among the best at his position, that isn’t too bad of an option.
