Overall Record: 12-4

Home Record: 6-2

Away Record: 6-2

The Ravens won’t be quite as successful as they were in 2019, but a 12-4 record is nothing to sneeze at. The loss to Kansas City will likely cost Baltimore home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, but they should still be well-positioned to land the second seed in the AFC.

The change in the playoff structure means that they will have to play on Wild Card weekend if that is the case, but it does ensure that Baltimore wouldn’t have to travel until at least the AFC Championship Game. That would be a massive advantage, since they’d still be set up to get further than they did a year ago.

How close Baltimore comes to meeting these expectations depends on what Lamar Jackson does as an encore to his MVP-winning performance of 2019. Jackson became the NFL’s most electrifying player a year ago, but he will need to continue to evolve his game in order to progress into the elite tier of quarterbacks.

The schedule is certainly challenging for Baltimore, but it is manageable for a team so talented. No matter how you slice it this is a bona fide Super Bowl contender, which is an exciting prospect for Baltimore fans, who have gotten used to seeing sustained excellence on the football field.
