OWINGS MILLS, Md. — The wife of Baltimore Ravens center Matt Skura has received harassing direct messages on social media after his poor snaps in Sunday night’s 23-17 loss to the New England Patriots.
“I appreciate those who have sent encouraging messages to me since the game,” Skura wrote on Instagram. “However, please know my family is off limits when it comes to hateful and threatening messages. They do not deserve to be scrutinized for something they did not do.”
Skura apologized for struggling to snap the ball, writing that he wanted “to take ownership” for his mistakes. In the third quarter, one errant snap to running back Mark Ingram in the Wildcat formation cost Baltimore a chance to convert a fourth-and-1 at midfield and led to a short Patriots field goal. In the fourth quarter, another wild snap to Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson in the pistol formation resulted in a 16-yard loss and ruined a potential Ravens comeback on their second-to-last drive of the game.
This is the second straight week that Skura has had trouble hiking the ball to Jackson. A week ago in Indianapolis, Skura had trouble lifting the ball
