December record: 5-0
2019 record: 14-2
AFC North standings: First (5-1 record)
What a season.
The Baltimore Ravens 2019 season was incredible. The team finished with an NFL best 14-2 record and the top seed in the AFC playoff picture. Obviously, the Ravens dominated AFC North play with a 5-1 record en route to the AFC North division crown.
Baltimore was seemingly unstoppable this year. After a 2-2 start and plenty of questions surrounding the team, the Ravens rallied to a 12-game win streak with big-time wins over Super Bowl contenders i.e. the Seattle Seahawks, New England Patriots, and San Francisco 49ers. The team won ugly games, too, proving they can do it in all.
Lamar Jackson‘s season was one for the record books, as we saw the 22-year old smash the single-season quarterback rushing yards record and put up a league-high 36 touchdown passes. Oh yeah, and he did it in just 15 games… no big deal.
The Ravens also set the NFL single-season team rushing yards record previously held by the 2978 New England Patriots, accumulating 3,172 total yards. The offense was outstanding and the defense held their end of the bargain, too, finishing third in PPG.
To put a bow on it, the 2019 edition of the Baltimore Ravens are good; they’re serious title contenders behind a historic offense and stout defense. As defending AFC North champs, they deserved more credit than was given, but they wrapped up the division easily. On to the post-season.
