College of the Canyons football alumnus Marquise “Hollywood” Brown made history in the Baltimore Ravens’ Week 1 beatdown of the Miami Dolphins in Miami on Sunday.
In Baltimore’s 59-10 win, Brown caught 4-of-5 passes to finish with 147 receiving yards and two touchdowns with his first NFL reception coming on a 47-yard score and the second coming on an 83-yard bomb.
Thanks to his impressive debut, Brown became the first NFL player in the history of the league to catch multiple 40-yard touchdowns in the first game of his career.
“Coach put me in a great position,” Brown said in an interview with Baltimoreravens.com staff writer Clifton Brown. “All I had to do was catch the ball and make a play.”
Brown’s next opportunity to showcase his elite receiving skills comes this week as the Ravens return home to the friendly confines of M&T Bank Stadium where they will make their 2019 home debut against the Arizona Cardinals. Brown will face his former Oklahoma University teammate and quarterback, fellow rookie Kyler Murray.
Kickoff is set for 10 a.m.
