This will be his fifth appearance out of just six seasons in the NFL, and it was very well deserved.
Baker has also quickly become a fan favorite, with many developing a fondness for his personality as seen in HBO Hard Knocks.
It was a speech given to his team after a devastating loss that showcased his true love for the game.
