Baltimore Ravens Schedule - NFL 2014

Overview of the Baltimore Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens joined the National Football League in unique circumstances in 1996. Cleveland Browns owner Art Modell's plan to move his franchise to Cleveland was blocked, however he was able to keep the Browns' existing players and staff and start a new franchise in Baltimore. The Ravens have been very successful in their short history qualifying for the playoffs in almost half of their seasons. The Ravens won the Super Bowl in 2000; a team which is considered one of the greatest in NFL history and last season against the San Francisco 49ers.

Statistics Overview of the Baltimore Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens were established in 1996. They have played all but their first two seasons at M&T Bank Stadium. The Ravens qualified for their first only Super Bowl in 2000 and defeated the New York Giants 34-7. Their second Super Bowl Victory came in last season's defeat of the San Francisco 49ers 34-31. The franchise has won the AFC North four times and has qualified for the playoffs an amazing nine times, considering their short history. They have an overall record of 150-121-1 and a playoffs record of 14-7. Their rivalry with the Pittsburgh Steelers is one of the tightest and competitive rivalries in the NFL with both teams dominating the AFC North in the last decade.

Baltimore Ravens: Star Players for 2014

Quarterback: Joe Flacco

Joe Flacco was selected by the Baltimore Ravens with the 18th pick of the 2008 NFL draft. Flacco was made starting quarterback in his rookie season and has not missed a game since. Flacco was extremely successful in his rookie season joining Matt Ryan as the first rookie quarterback to start all sixteen games and make the playoffs, becoming the first rookie quarterback to win two playoff games and ultimately named NFL Rookie of the Year. The Ravens have qualified for the playoffs every season but one since Flacco's debut. Flacco has however been criticized in some quarters for his lackluster passing statistics. Flacco holds the Ravens franchise record for most career passing yards, completions and touchdowns. After a lackluster 2013 season, Flacco will be fighting to restore his former glory that got him to Super Bowl MVP in 2012.

Offensive Star: Ray Rice

Ray Rice was the 55th selection in the 2008 NFL draft. In his short career Rice has turned into one of the premier running backs in the NFL. As of 2013, he is ranked as the Raven's second all-time leading rusher behind Jamal Lewis. Rice saw limited game time in his rookie season but won the starting job in 2009. He finished the 2009 season with 1339 yards and seven touchdowns, earning selection in the AFC Pro Bowl team. Rice rushed for 1,220 yards in 2010 but missed out on Pro Bowl selection. Rice dominated the Ravens offense in 2011; rushing for 1364 yards as well as gaining 704 receiving yards. Rice is a legitimate duel threat and perhaps the most complete running back in the NFL, having now earned a Super Bowl ring.

Defensive Star: Daryl Smith

Daryl Smith signed a one year contract with the Ravens in June 2013 as a way of strengthening the Raven's Linebacker core following Ray Lewis's retirement. Smith soon took control of the job. During Week 3 of the regular season, Smith had his first interception return for a touchdown in a 30-9 victory against the Houston Texans. In December he broke Ray Lewis's franchise record for most pass deflections in a single season (17) with 19. He ended up making 57 overall tackles and five sacks in the 2013 season. If the Ravens can sign him on for longer than one year he'll become a strong part of their defensive line.

Head Coach: John Harbaugh

John Harbaugh began his NFL coaching career as Special Teams Coordinator for the Philadelphia Eagles in 1998. Harbaugh stayed at that post for almost a decade before being chosen as Ravens head coach in 2008. The Ravens have been very successful under Harbaugh, qualifying for the playoffs every season except the latest since he took over as head coach, peaking in 2012 with Super Bowl victory against the San Francisco 49ers, a team coached by Brother Jim.
