A quarter of the Baltimore Ravens season has passed, and it has been very eventful so far. Through four games, the Ravens have sole possession of first place in the AFC North, and are tied for the best record in the AFC. All three of their victories have been by 17 points or more, and their only bad game so far has been a letdown loss to the Tennessee Titans.
Now in Week 5 the Ravens can kick back and enjoy their bye week. It's an early bye week, but for the Ravens it comes at an ideal time, as they have several players that need to recover from injury. After resting and getting healthy, they are preparing to take on the Houston Texans at home in Week 6.
The season's success can be attributed to many of the familiar faces responsible for their current three year playoff streak. But there have also been some surprise players that have contributed to this year's 3-1 start. The combination of these familiar and surprise players are helping the Ravens go for one of their best regular season records ever.
Here are those players that have been the biggest surprises so far.
