Trace McSorley throws 70-yard TD pass for Ravens; Franklin not surprised ‘one bit’

Trace McSorley came in at quarterback for the Ravens late in Wednesday’s game against the Steelers, trailing 19-7. McSorley gave Baltimore a chance when he threw this pass to Hollywood Brown, which turned into a 70-yard touchdown.

It was the first touchdown pass of McSorley’s career.

The Steelers held on to win, 19-14.  McSorley finished 2-of-6 for 77 yards, and he also carried three times for 16 yards.

James Franklin had just come off the practice field and was about to meet with the media for his weekly Wednesday press conference when he was told by a PSU communications staffer what McSorley had done.

“I’m a big Trace McSorley fan,” Franklin said.

“Nothing with that guy surprises me one bit. … He’s one of those guys that’s gonna find a way.”

Franklin then talked about the story that Penn State fans know all too well — that McSorley was not highly recruited but still found a way to become a terrific quarterback at PSU.

“He’s a winner,” Franklin said. “He did it in high school, he did it in college, so it doesn’t surprise me at all that he’s doing it again now in the NFL.”
