SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former Utah Utes quarterback Tyler Huntley had a big performance in the Baltimore Ravens’ 17-14 win over the Saints in his preseason debut.

Tyler Huntley didn’t play in preseason last year as a rookie as those games were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The former Ute has worked his way up the depth chart for the Ravens after signing to their practice squad last year and eventually became the backup QB for Lamar Jackson due to injuries to other QB’s.

In the win over the Saints, Huntley went 12-for-16 passing for 78 yards while running the ball seven times for 43 yards, including a seven-yard touchdown run. That TD and a two-point conversion gave the Ravens a three-point lead over the Saints with 6:35 remaining in the game.

Huntley is fighting for the backup job along with former Penn State QB Trace McSorely, who went 11-for-18 passing for 86 yards and one interception, while running the ball four times for 25 yards.
