BTN will provide the team rankings of the Ravens opponents for an easy comparison tool for the remainder of the season. The upcoming series of three straight road games will define the season and place the team either clearly in or out of the playoff race.


 

While the offense continues to hold the #1 ranking in TOP at 34:04, penalties continue to be an issue and they had an adverse effect on the Red Zone % in the game against the Raiders.  


 

Check back each week to see if
Cam’s new system is leading the boys in the right direction this year. Here’s where the offense stands after week 8.
