Ravens’ loss is good news for the Eagles

New, comments

Here’s to a bad season for Baltimore.

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

The Baltimore Ravens were defeated by the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday night, 34-23. With the loss, the Ravens drop to 1-1 on the 2018 NFL season.

This result is a good one for the Philadelphia Eagles, who own Baltimore’s second-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

The Eagles acquired that pick by moving down from No. 32 overall in the 2018 NFL Draft. In addition to their 2019 second, the Ravens gave up 2018 picks No. 52 and No. 125 in exchange for No. 32 and No. 132.

Philadelphia later ended up trading up a few spots from No. 52 to No. 49 in order to select tight end Dallas Goedert. The Eagles then took slot cornerback Avonte Maddox at No. 125.

The biggest asset from that deal, though, was obviously the Ravens’ 2019 second-round pick. If Baltimore continues to lose, that pick could end up being a real nice one for the Eagles.

It’s obviously way too early in the season to know just how the Ravens will finish, but it’s good to see them take a step back with their loss to the Bengals after obliterating the Bills this past Sunday.

The Ravens will return to action in a home game against the Denver Broncos in Week 3. Go Broncos.

We’ll continue to monitor the status of Ravens pick owed to the Eagles throughout the season.
