The Ravens had a big win over the New England Patriots. The final score was 31-30.
But for receiver Torrey Smith, the game was about more than just football. He played less than 24 hours after learning about the death of his brother.
Smith says being back in the game is helping him a lot. And the support he's received from his teammates and fans has gone a long way.
Smith says he played Sunday's game for his brother. 19 year old Tevin Jones died just before midnight Sunday when his motorcycle crashed into a utility pole in Virginia.
Police say alcohol was not a factor. And Jones was wearing a helmet.
Smith traveled to Virginia to be with his family after learning of his brother’s death.
He says he only got about an hour of sleep before the game and made the decision to play when he got to the stadium.
In the second quarter, Smith was visibly emotional after scoring a touchdown. After the game, he says it was all for his younger brother who looked up to Smith as his mentor.
Smith he looks forward to playing the next game on Thursday against the Cleveland Browns.
