The Baltimore Ravens are undoubtedly one of the best teams in the NFL. They’ve proven over the last few years that they deserve to be in the conversation when talking about the NFL’s elite.

As such, it’s no surprise to see them ranked as high as they were in Pro Football Focus’ latest power rankings ahead of the 2021 season.

PFF ranked the Ravens as the fourth-best team in the NFL behind just the Kansas City Chiefs, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Buffalo Bills going into this year.

That’s ahead of some of the other best teams in the league like the Green Bay Packers, Los Angeles Rams, and Cleveland Browns.

The Ravens are one of the best teams in the NFL according to PFF.

Despite their high ranking, the Ravens were actually given a very low chance to win the Super Bowl. While PFF gave teams like the Chiefs and Buccaneers 14-15 percent chances of emerging as Super Bowl winners, Baltimore was given just a five percent chance.

Meanwhile, the Packers, who were ranked behind the Ravens at No. 5 on the power rankings, were given an 11 percent chance. That’s double the odds of Baltimore winning the Super Bowl.

Even the Cleveland Browns, who came in at No. 8 on the power rankings, had a higher chance to win the Super Bowl with a six percent chance.

While that may be a little confusing, it is worth noting that the Ravens still have the sixth-best odds to win the Super Bowl, per PFF’s algorithm. It’s hard to complain about that.

PFF isn’t wrong either. You’d be hard-pressed to find a reputable source that doesn’t believe the Ravens are one of the best teams in the league.

They have a borderline top-five quarterback in Lamar Jackson, an ascending young running back in J.K. Dobbins, and a much improved offensive line and wide receiver corps.

And on defense, the Ravens boast one of the stronger overall units with an uber-talented secondary, a veteran-heavy defensive line, and a linebacker corps led by a young Patrick Queen.

Baltimore’s roster is stacked from top to bottom. They’ll look to finally get over the hump in this season with a Super Bowl victory.
