Just one team in the AFC North — the Pittsburgh Steelers — made the NFL playoffs last season. Did the Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns do enough in the 2018 draft to reach the playoffs this season?
The Ravens clearly are intrigued enough by Lamar Jackson to bring in the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback in for a pre-draft visit. But that doesn't mean they are taking him with the 16th overall pick.
Coming off a 9-7 season and missing the playoffs for the third straight year, the Ravens found out how tough their road back to the playoffs will be when the 2018 NFL schedule was released Thursday night. The Baltimore Sun staff weighs in on the schedule's difficulty.
The Ravens open at home against the Buffalo Bills, will be done with AFC North road games after Oct. 7, have a three-game road trip, have a three-game homestand, face four straight 2017 playoff teams in the midseason, and have back-to-back road games against the Falcons and Chiefs in December.
Ozzie Newsome will step down as Ravens general manager next season, handing the reigns of the player personnel decisions over to Eric DeCosta, owner Steve Bisciotti said at Friday’s State of the Ravens address.
Owner Steve Bisciotti is late in delivering the "State of the Ravens" address with the team in the most critical state in the franchise’s 22-year history in Baltimore and it is time for him to address the fan base and its concerns.
