The Baltimore Ravens have the ability to be contenders in 2017
The past two seasons have left Baltimore Ravens fans frustrated. 5-11 and 8-8 seasons are not acceptable in an organization that has a winning reputation.
While it may be hard to find optimism for the upcoming season, I am here to tell you otherwise. I think the Ravens can absolutely be contenders next season. Every year you see NFL experts talking about the Ravens as contenders. You always see Chris Berman picking the Ravens for his Super Bowl pick. Even after a down season, the birds cannot be counted out.
It is too early to predict a Lombardi trophy, but I know the Ravens will be in the conversation.
Here are my 5 reasons why the Ravens can be contenders next season.
