Lost in the dominant performance by the Ravens in their 24-10 victory over the Cleveland Browns Sunday afternoon, was the fact that rookie sixth-round pick Tyrod Taylor made his regular season debut.
Taylor, the Ravens' backup quarterback, came in for one play in the first half, a two-yard run.
On that play, the Ravens split out starter Joe Flacco and let Taylor take the snap.
He eventually had to make his debut, and why not have him do so in a game that wasn't really in doubt?
With Taylor now in the mix, he's now another thing defenses have to think about when gameplanning for the Ravens in their final four regular season games.
