Broncos coach Vic Fangio objected to Baltimore’s final offensive on Sunday, with the Ravens running quarterback Lamar Jackson to extend the team’s streak of 100-yard rushing games.
The Broncos overturned it with three seconds to spare on quarterback Drew Locke’s interception.
The Ravens held onto their 20-yard line and instead of taking a knee to end the game, Jackson ran five yards to the left when time ran out.
“Yeah, I thought it was a kind of bull (sleep), but I expected it from them,” Fangio said. “Thirty-seven years in pro ball (as a coach) and I have never seen anything like it. But it was to be expected. And we expected it. “
Why did Fangio, who was on John Harbaugh’s first Baltimore staff, expect this?
“Because I just know how they work,” Fangio said. “It’s their way of operating – player safety is secondary.”
Asked if he saw the Ravens play dirty throughout the game, Fangio said: “I’m sure there were some, but I can’t give you a number.”
Responding to that comment, Harbaugh told Baltimore media: “I thought we were on good terms. We had a good conversation before the game. But I promise you, I’m not going to give that insult a second. What is meaningful to us may not necessarily be meaningful to them as well.
Harbaugh the Ravens plans to send videos of several of Jackson’s hits to the league office for review.
