ESPN's Mike Greenberg says Baltimore Ravens QB Tyler Huntley is a 'star in the making'
With Lamar Jackson out with a sprained ankle, former Utah quarterback Tyler Huntley nearly led Baltimore (8-6) all the way back from a 31-17 deficit against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. An 8-yard touchdown run with 42 seconds left pulled the Ravens within one point, but the Ravens decided to go for two and the win rather than try a point-after attempt and go to overtime.
The two-point try failed and Baltimore lost 31-30 to the Packers, but Huntley drew a number of headlines for his play in the effort.
Huntley threw for 215 yards and a pair of touchdowns in just his second career start at the NFL level. He posted a QBR of 82.4 and added another 73 yards and two more scores rushing on just 13 carries.
On ESPN’s ‘Get Up’ show Tuesday morning, Mike Greenberg suggested Huntley can be a star.

“The Ravens may have a star in the making and it’s quarterback Tyler Huntley,” Greenberg said. “He is good.”
The network hosts made it clear they weren’t suggesting there should be a quarterback controversy in Baltimore when Jackson returns to full health, but Greeny made clear he thinks Huntley can be a starting quarterback in the NFL.
Huntley has played extensively in three games this season in relief of Jackson. He’s up to 743 yards passing on the year, with three touchdowns against just one interception and a nice 69% completion rate. He also has 168 rushing yards and two scores on the ground.
