Heading into 2022, many pundits are touting the Baltimore Ravens to go all the way this year with a stacked roster and a thirsty quest for revenge.
Former Ravens quarterback Robert Griffin III, who briefly played in Baltimore from 2018 to 2020, recently went on The Rich Eisen Show and shared his thoughts on the Ravens’ squad this season.
Compared to heavyweights like the Buffalo Bills and Los Angeles Rams, the Ravens could be considered more of a dark horse contender for the Super Bowl, but they are a contender nonetheless.
Barring another injury catastrophe, the Ravens have the key roster pieces to make a deep postseason run, and even though they play in one of the toughest divisions in the cutthroat AFC, Baltimore could very well win a ring in 2022.
Baltimore Ravens are projected to be Super Bowl contenders this season
‘Tis the season of speculation and prediction, and RB3 is just one of many pundits voicing their opinions ahead of the start of the season.
The Bills, Rams, Chiefs, and Bucs enter 2022 as arguably the favorites to reach the Super Bowl, and while the Ravens sit in a tier below those teams due to their relative lack of playoff experience, they have the talent and depth to hold their own.
A rejuvenated offense of Lamar Jackson, J.K. Dobbins, and Rashod Bateman will take the field, hopefully buoyed by the dominant return of Ronnie Stanley.
Defensively, the Ravens added more juice in the form of Marcus Williams and Kyle Hamilton, but the team’s weakest link is the pass-rushing unit which hasn’t changed much from last year.
The Ravens also have another intangible reason for going far this year: redemption. After finishing bottom of the division in 2021, Baltimore has a point to prove to its AFC North rivals and the rest of the league.
No team is better positioned to make a Super Bowl run on the heels of a losing record than the Ravens, and this season should show the team’s true and fiercest colors.
