Steve Smith has been a great NFL receiver for 16 years and has continued to produce at a high level into his late 30’s. Don’t tell that to Malcolm Butler, though.
In Monday night’s match-up with the Patriots, the five-time Pro Bowler was held to four catches for 57 yards and was absolutely manhandled by Malcolm on this 2nd & goal situation in the third quarter:

Joe Flacco did throw a touchdown to Darren Waller on this play, but the only thing Pats fans will remember is young Malcolm asserting his dominance over a Hall of Fame receiver. 21 continues to win us over every time he steps onto the field.
