the ravens had two distinct seasons in 2012.

the regular season(10-6) included losing 4 out of their last 5 and a defense that gave up a lot of yards on the ground(200 yards to a second string dallas cowboys RB tandem) and could not hold a lead late (philly and pissburg)

in the the post season (4-0) the ravens displayed an explosive offense and a clutch defense.

prediction for 2013:
with all of the new additions on defense and an enhanced coaching staff i would expect the raven to have a much better regular season record especially if they can continue to show the knack to win games they shouldn't have like they did in 2012(dallas/new england/san diego).

as far as the post season, i don't think anyone could match the ravens run that they had through the SB. That run was truly miraculous.

in conclusion, hope to have a very good regular season that will give the ravens an entree into their 6th straight playoff season and than sit back and see what happens in the playoffs.
