BTN will provide the team rankings of the Ravens opponents for an easy comparison tool for the remainder of the season.


 

The rankings after week 14 have changed very little. Because the passing game is below average, the Ravens are not built to come from behind. A stretch run to the playoffs will be built on the defense creating turnovers and the offense cashing in…just like we saw in the Redskins game.


 

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 14.
