A Baltimore Ravens vs. New Orleans Saints Super Bowl is not far fetched
The Baltimore Ravens may have lost to the Saints, but they could see them again in the Super Bowl. Think it’s a crazy statement? It’s really not:
The Baltimore Ravens just went toe to toe with the New Orleans Saints. This 24-23 loss stings. There is no getting around it, and there is no moral victory. The perspective gained from this game however, is that the purple and black can compete with any team in the NFL.
The idea of a Ravens rematch crossed my mind. Once the shock of Justin Tucker having the only missed extra point of his career went away, it’s an idea that hooked me. Baltimore could go to the Super Bowl and they could end up playing the Saints. Baltimore sits at 4-3 in a wide open AFC. They have a great defense and are as legitimate as any team in the playoff picture.

Kansas City has a shaky defense. New England isn’t a world killer this season. Jacksonville has had struggles and the entire AFC South is underwhelming. There’s not a team in the mix that isn’t flawed and the Ravens proved that can play against any team in the NFL. The Ravens still have work to do to earn a spot in the postseason. The point is that Baltimore has a chance on a week to week basis. This isn’t a bad team, in fact it still has a chance to be a special season.
The Saints have some stiff competition in the NFC. The Los Angeles Rams look like the best team in football. If it comes down to a battle between Drew Brees and Jared Goff though, it would be hard to bet against New Orleans. If the Rams are the best team in football, the Saints are not far behind. New Orleans could be Super Bowl bound.
The Ravens held the number one scoring offense to 24 points. They were an extra point away from overtime. The Ravens just took a pretty rough punch from the Saints in a heavy weight fight. The Ravens lost but they didn’t get knocked out. They barely got knocked down. The bottom line is that whether or not this was a Super Bowl preview, it sure felt like one in the moment. The game had that kind of energy. A Super Bowl between the New Orleans Saints and the Baltimore Ravens is not out of the realm of possibilities. Now the purple and black know that they can beat them in a rematch.
