This coming September, the Baltimore Ravens will be on a mission. Two-time Superbowl winners are eager to add a third to the trophy cabinet. Especially after last season where top seeds fell short of playoff expectations.
However, they can take comfort in the fact that they have a fantastic AFC Divisional run. Today, the frustration still lingers, but the Ravens realize they are one of the NFL’s best teams and a Super Bowl favorite.
“Going into our season last year, we were the iceberg,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. “Ninety per cent of what we can do is still underwater and people haven’t seen it yet. Starting next year, we won̵7;t be an iceberg. People will come to us. We will be the most important game.
Can the Baltimore Ravens do it this time around?
Since 2018, Lamar Jackson has taken the mantle from Joe Flacco and led the franchise in that year’s playoffs. A year later, Jackson and the Ravens offense came back together, while the defense was not far behind.
Despite a shock to the Titans in last year’s playoffs, everything is still going on. However, they all know that many teams aim to raise them, so there is no place for fun.
“They just pissed about it,” Harbaugh talks about losing to Tennessee. “They are not happy about it. I hope our guys can learn from there and understand what it takes to beat an opponent determined to beat you.”
In a way, he is right, because there is no greater motivator than loss. So, Baltimore Ravens fans can be sure their team will come back stronger than ever.
