Daniel Faalele made the most of his first NFL start on Sunday.

The former Minnesota Golden Gopher offensive tackle and current Baltimore Raven rookie did well at protecting Lamar Jackson and the Ravens’ backfield in the loss to the Buffalo Bills Sunday.

Going up against one of the NFL’s premier linebackers Von Miller, Faalele had 43 pass blocking snaps and allowed 0 sacks. He helped keep the Ravens in the game despite a shaky performance from Jackson.

The performance will likely lead to more starts in what is sure to be a great career from Faalele.

Faalele, a Melbourne, Australia, native, played at Minnesota from 2018 to 2021 and was drafted by the Ravens in the fourth round of the 2022 NFL Draft.
