Preston: Ravens are at least one or two playmakers away from contending

Regardless of a team’s record, the season usually comes down to about 10 plays.

If a team has playmakers, it can overcome its obstacles and get to the postseason. These are the players who can make those 10 plays.

The Ravens’ top priority this offseason is to find an offensive playmaker or two. They have other needs, but they are still in the class of the Buffalo Bills or Tennessee Titans, teams that barely found their way into the playoffs.

The Ravens are like a lot of teams in the mediocre, watered-down NFL. But if they get some players healthy and make a strong move or two in the offseason, they could make the playoffs for the first time in four years.
