Baltimore ravens



    The Baltimore Ravens are a professional American football team based in Baltimore. They compete in the National Football League (NFL) as a member club of the American Football Conference (AFC) North division. The team plays its home games at M&T Bank Stadium and is headquartered in Owings Mills, Maryland. The club was established in 1996, after Art Modell, who was then the owner of the Cleveland Browns, announced plans to relocate the franchise from Cleveland to Baltimore in 1995.[9] As part of a settlement between the league and the city of Cleveland, Modell was required to leave the Browns' history and records in Cleveland for a replacement team and replacement personnel that would resume play in 1999. In return, he was allowed to take his own personnel and team to Baltimore, where such personnel would then form an expansion team.-->

    Baltimore Ravens

    After the controversial relocation of the Colts to Indianapolis, several attempts were made to bring an NFL team back to Baltimore. In 1993, ahead of the 1995 league expansion, the city was considered a favorite, behind only St. Louis, to be granted one of two new franchises. League officials and team owners feared litigation due to conflicts between rival bidding groups if St. Louis was awarded a franchise. In October Charlotte, North Carolina was the first city chosen. Several weeks later, Baltimore's bid for a franchise—dubbed the Baltimore Bombers, in honor of the locally produced Martin B-26 Marauder bomber—had three ownership groups in place and a state financial package which included a proposed $200 million, rent-free stadium and permission to charge up to $80 million in personal seat license fees.Baltimore, however, was unexpectedly passed over in favor of Jacksonville, Florida, despite Jacksonville's minor TV market status and that the city had withdrawn from contention in the summer, only to return with then-Commissioner Paul Tagliabue's urging. Although league officials denied that any city had been favored, it was reported that Tagliabue and his longtime friend Washington Redskins owner Jack Kent Cooke had lobbied against Baltimore due to its proximity to Washington, D.C., and that Tagliabue had used the initial committee voting system to prevent the entire league ownership from voting on Baltimore's bid.This led to public outrage and The Baltimore Sun describing Tagliabue as having an "Anybody But Baltimore" policy. Maryland governor William Donald Schaefer said afterward that Tagliabue had led him on, praising Baltimore and the proposed owners while working behind-the-scenes to oppose Baltimore's bid.

      Week 5 Offensive Film Room: Decisions, decisions

      Week 5 saw a very one-sided game between the Ravens and Bengals, however Lamar Jackson still struggled to move the ball. It was certainly not his best game, and attempting to pass the ball 37 times was a questionable decision from the coaching staff. Baltimore handedly won this game, but the puzzling decisions and unfortunate executions left an odd taste after the game. Today, we’re gonna take a look at three plays from the Baltimore vs. Cincinnati game, and why these examine why they are important. Our first play comes with 12:13 left in the first quarter on 2nd-&-3. Baltimore has a lot of big bodies on the field with only one wide receiver out wide left and the other, Duvernay, in the slot on the right side. The Bengals have a wall set up behind the line, discouraging any sort of run up the middle. The play is a triple option, where Lamar Jackson can either keep it himself, give it to Ingram, or give it to Duvernay whose running in the opposite direction of the other two. Once the play starts and both Ingram and Lamar move to the right side, you can see every single Bengals defender move to that side, fully prepared to take on either. Jackson hands it off to Duvernay and he finds salvation in all that daylight, as well as an easy 42 yards. This play is significant because it’s a perfect example of what Baltimore could be doing on a play-by-play basis. Everyone knows the strategy at this point, running shrouded...

      Patrick Queen named AFC Defensive Player of the Week

      After a standout performance against the Bengals in Week 5, rookie LB Patrick Queen has been rewarded by earning AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors for the first time in his young career. Queen’s finger prints were all over the Ravens 24-point victory and dominant defensive performance. He led the Ravens in tackles with nine, contributed in the sack department, forced a fumble, and recovered a fumble and returned it for a 52-yard touchdown. In addition to a gaudy stat line, Queen earned an impressive PFF grade of 88.7. It was a masterful performance from the former LSU Tiger, who got the best of his former collegiate teammate Joe Burrow. Humphrey ripped the ball loose from Bengals WR Mike Thomas, and Queen was in the right place at the right time. He scooped up the fumble and ran 52 yards untouched into the end zone. Queen has been a healthy source of statistics and impact plays all season long, but like most rookies, inconsistencies had plagued him at times through Week 4. However, against the Bengals, Queen put everything together for his best all-around showing of the year, one that can be described as near-perfect. The arrow is pointing up for Queen and this figures to be one of many times he represents the AFC as Defensive Player of the Week.

      NFL Power Rankings Roundup: Ravens are a consensus top 5 team once again

      Led by a dominant performance by their defense, the Ravens blew out the Bengals 27-3 on Sunday. Subsequently, they have slightly risen in this week’s power rankings and are a consensus top-five team for the first time in two weeks. ESPN kept the Ravens at number four and cited their passing offense as their biggest weakness. The Ravens were hoping to see Lamar Jackson take the next step as a passer, but that hasn’t consistently happened through five games. Baltimore ranks 31st in passing, averaging 178.8 yards per game. Only the banged-up New York Jets are worse. Jackson recently acknowledged he is “not happy” with the passing game but said he believes there’s plenty of time left in the season to turn it around. With the running game not being as dominant as last season, Jackson has to become more accurate and efficient in throwing the ball if Baltimore wants to beat the likes of the Steelers, Colts, Titans and Patriots in November. — Jamison Hensley CBS Sports moved them up to number five. They still haven’t clicked on offense yet. The defense was impressive against the Bengals last week, but they need more from the offense. They moved up to fourth in Sports Illustrated’s rankings. There are questions on offense, a lot of them stemming from the rocky performance from the interior line (which is what happens when your Hall of Fame right guard retires after an All-Pro season). But what this defense did to poor Joe Burrow on Sunday was a bit much, and their Week 1 trouncing of Cleveland will come in handy in the three-way AFC North race (that’s the...
