The Bottom Line
The moral of the story here, is that the Ravens are getting big results from unexpected places. Before the season there are always unknowns. There are things that can be seen only as toss ups. When the season finishes we see what we were right about and what we were wrong about. It looks like the Ravens are glad analysts were wrong about some concerns.
The Ravens success has a lot to do with the efforts of Ozzie Newsome. Fans have been critical of Newsome during the struggles of the season. Some of this is valid criticism however valid praise is also warranted. At the end of the day, the Ravens have a chance to go to the playoffs. With a 7-5 record and a team that is getting hot, anything is still possible.
Baltimore is getting surprising results from some of their players. There is no doubt about that. This team surprised everybody against the Dolphins. Hopefully this team is full of many more positive surprises.
