For the Ravens to win the Super Bowl again this year, they first have to defend the title they won in February. Here's how they can do it.

The Baltimore Ravens head into the upcoming season as reigning Super Bowl champions, but that doesn't make them the favorite to return to the big game come next February. With so many factors at play, the path to a Super Bowl win is often unpredictable, but to walk that path two seasons in a row is nearly impossible.

The last time a team won back-to-back Super Bowls was the New England Patriots in 2004 and 2005; before that, it was the Denver Broncos in 1998 and 1999. History has shown it can be done. However, with all the changes the Ravens roster has undergone since winning their franchise's second Lombardi trophy in February, right now, the focus needs to be on defending the crown and approaching the season one week at a time.

Here's a blueprint for how the Ravens can be the toughest, most intimidating team possible in their quest to defend their Super Bowl championship and, perhaps, to make it back to the NFL's biggest stage for the second consecutive season.
