Baltimore Ravens: 5 reasons they are a playoff team
5. Lamar Jackson has energized the team:
Lamar Jackson has energized the Ravens and it is pretty obvious. The Ravens have rallied around their rookie quarterback and he has been a leader. The Ravens rookie quarterback is absolutely unflappable. He doesn’t get rattled and he barely ever stops smiling. Jackson has made plays that have made the Ravens an exciting team to watch. The energy the Ravens take into the postseason is a lot because of what Jackson brings to the table.
The Ravens have a swagger that they didn’t have when they were 4-5. Maybe it was there, but it was hard to see in all that was going wrong. Maybe it’s because the offensive line enjoys the constant chance to be aggressive and run block. Maybe it’s because the Ravens are winning and it’s given them a new sense of purpose. One thing is for sure, the team believes they can beat anyone and the good vibes started when Jackson took over.
The Baltimore Ravens made it to the playoffs because they got hot when they needed to. Jackson has a lot to do with that. He’s made the Ravens an exciting team and they might be the most fun team to watch in the NFL playoffs.
