BALTIMORE RAVENS

Last Season: 10-6, 4-2 division
<br><br>
Playoffs: Won the Super Bowl
<br><br>
Stat Leaders: QB Joe Flacco (3,817 YDS, 22 TDS, 10 INTS); RB Ray Rice (1,143 YDS, 9 TDS); WR Anquan Boldin (921 YDS, 4 TDS); S Bernard Pollard (98 TACKLES, 2.0 SACKS)
<br><br>
The Buzz: QB Joe Flacco doesn't put up the flashiest quarterback numbers, but he manages the Ravens' offense well and has a new Super Bowl ring to prove it. Running back Ray Rice is another steady player who has not missed a regular-season game in four seasons. Torrey Smith will have to perform well at receiver with last year's leader Anquan Boldin leaving the team and tight end Dennis Pitta out for the year with a hip injury. On defense, Baltimore is hoping Elvis Dumervil can help ease the blow of losing leaders Ray Lewis and Ed Reed.

Luck Factor: After the departure of key leaders from the Super Bowl-winning squad, it will take a big dose of luck to win another title.
