Defending the Lombardi Trophy is a tough task in today’s NFL. And it doesn’t get any easier when the captain of your defense is hosting Monday Night Football and your best defensive back is now an opponent.
Yet the Ravens are still in the hunt and have had some early season developments that will surely impact their chances of reaching the playoffs.
I’ve taken the liberty of ranking these developments in terms of importance to the Ravens' postseason chances. While other developments are important, such as draft rumors, they are not prevalent to this season. News that affects other teams is also prevalent to the Ravens chances and is included in the rankings, but the spot reflects how it directly relates to Baltimore. For example, it’s not very relative that Von Miller returns to the Broncos because the Ravens have already played Denver.
