Trace McSorley produces 1st NFL score on clutch 70-yard TD for Ravens
After Robert Griffin III came out of Wednesday’s game for the Baltimore Ravens, former Penn State starting quarterback Trace McSorley came in and threw his first-ever NFL touchdown pass.
It was a 70-yard touchdown pass to Marquise Brown, who burned both Terrell Edmunds and Minkah Fitzpatrick in the process.

After McSorley produced the touchdown, Ricky Rahne, who was McSorley’s quarterback coach and offensive coordinator his senior year at Penn State, had some exciting thoughts for the rest of McSorley’s career:

James Franklin also had some kind words to say about McSorley after he saw the play:
James Franklin off the practice field right now on Trace McSorley: "It doesn't surprise me at all. I was coming off the practice field and they told me Trace just threw his first touchdown pass. … I'm a big Trace McSorley fan."

It ended up getting the Ravens right back in the game at 19-14, though Baltimore would end up losing the game to that same score.
Despite that though, it was still a great moment for McSorley who had waited a long time for it. He saw his first NFL action in 2020 Wednesday after replacing the injured Griffin. Griffin was making the start after star quarterback Lamar Jackson tested positive for COVID-19.
