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

 
That thud you heard was the Ravens offense dropping in rank in nearly every category after the loss to the Giants.  Red Zone Conversion % and Rush yards per game are the only rankings holding their own from last week. The question now becomes did the offense peak during the four game win streak?

 
From a statistical viewpoint the Eagles are the toughest team left on the schedule as they are the only remaining opponent ranked in the top 10 in both offense and defense.

 
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 11.
