John Harbaugh Tries to Explain Two-Point Conversion in Loss Against Steelers

The Ravens faced Pittsburgh in an AFC North showdown.

Down by seven points late in the fourth quarter, Baltimore put together a great drive. Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson ended up connecting with wide receiver Sammy Watkins on a six-yard touchdown pass.  However, Baltimore opted to attempt a two-point conversion rather than kicking the extra point to possibly force overtime.

The attempt was no good.

Following the loss, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh gave a simple explanation on why he chose to go for two.

“[We’re] trying to win the game right there. We were pretty much out of corners at that point in time. It was an opportunity to try to win the game right there.”

Not only did the play cost the Ravens the game, it knocked the team out of the No.1 seed in their conference.

Risky decision with so much on the line.

You love to see the attempt but an overtime game would have been much more exciting.

Tough call by Harbaugh.
