EXCERPTS FROM THE ARTICLE:
The Ravens ditched the synthetic turf they had used for 13 years, and the initial reviews from players were overwhelmingly positive about the new surface.
“It’s top of the line,” fullback Kyle Juszczyk said. “It’s premium right now. I could go out and putt on this thing right now.”
The field held up aesthetically and structurally. It looked pristine when the players first walked out for warmups, and nobody had issues slipping because of soft turf.
“That grass was phenomenal,” Juszczyk said. “I’m very pro grass. My knees feel better after practice, and there was good traction all night.”
“I love the field,” running back Terrance West added. “It makes the cuts easier and I like it.”
