The national spotlight has shifted away from the Ravens. They’re no longer the team that dominated in the regular season only to be ushered rapidly from the postseason stage. Quarterback Lamar Jackson is no longer the reigning Most Valuable Player. Many prognosticators have flipped to treating the Cleveland Browns as rulers-in-waiting of the AFC North.

They’re still an aspiring Super Bowl contender built around one of the most exciting young players in the game. They’re still trying to answer for a plug-ugly playoff defeat that shook fans’ confidence. They’re still a team that will command plenty of time on prime-time broadcasts and morning show debates. The Ravens are still plenty intriguing.
