Behind The Numbers: Bye Week Special

Street Talk Behind The Numbers: Bye Week Special

With last week being the Ravens bye week it got me to thinking about how they have faired in games after returning from the break.


 

The Ravens overall record in first games after a bye week is a solid 8-5 (61.5%), but since 2000 they are 7-2 (77.8%) with a 5-1 (83.3%) home record.


 

This year is proving to be good for teams playing at home after a bye week. Overall, teams are 8-4 after the bye week with home teams going 6-2 (75%).


 

The next three games will determine if the Ravens have a legitimate chance at making a run at the post season.  Below is snapshot of the next three opponents.
