The Baltimore Ravens (2-0) will try to keep their winning streak alive to stay atop the AFC North before facing two divisional rivals on the road in the next couple of weeks. It will take more than a collective effort after ruling out 10 starters, but there is nothing your superheroes can't do.

The Indianapolis Colts (1-1) will try to win their second matchup in as many weeks while going above .500 for the first time this season, even though they'll have to do that without QB1 Anthony Richardson active.

With just a few hours between now and kick-off time come Sunday, here are some facts and stats you must know about this Week 3 matchup between Colts and Ravens scheduled for 1 p.m. ET (if the weather doesn't interfere) at the M&T Bank Stadium.

1. This is the 28th season of Ravens football in Baltimore. The Colts played there for 31 years

If you're young, you don't remember about this, but it is as true as it gets. The Colts spent 31 seasons in Baltimore from the founding of the team in 1953 all the way through the 1983 season, one year before they relocated to Indianapolis.

The city of Baltimore tried to keep the team in town but they couldn't outbid the offer submitted by the city of Indianapolis to poach the team from Maryland. Thus, the move.

Everybody was mad at it back then, but eventually, Baltimore got what they wanted (and deserved) and landed the Ravens in 1996 in what came to be known as "The Move" when the original Cleveland Browns were moved to the city (not the franchise, but their assets and player contracts) before the Browns were brought back to life in the 1999 expansion draft.

Meanwhile, the Colts are already playing their 40th season in Indianapolis in 2023.
