Bet on the NFL Here is a look at how the Baltimore Ravens rank up as we head into Super Bowl 45 playoff Week 1.
This Sunday kicks off the playoff season for the Baltimore Ravens as they had to Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday for the AFC wild-card match up against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Ravens wrapped up the regular season with a 12-4 record, which included non-stop wins 4 weeks in a row at the end. This will be Baltimore’s third consecutive year in the playoff. When betting on the Super Bowl note that in the last two Baltimore games, the Ravens only gave up 17 points, and have ranked 3rd in the league for points allowed with 270. As for the team leader, quarterback Joe Flacco has faltered in his last three games, unable to pass for more than 200 yards, in addition, Batlimore’s offense struggled this season. They ranked 14th in their running game with 114.4 yards per game, last year their ranked 5th in comparison. Flacco will need the offense to step it up this post season if they want to stand a chance. The offensive line allowed 40 sacks this season. Coach John Harbaugh is keeping it optimistic with the offense as they head into the AFC West champs this Sunday against the Chiefs at 1PM Eastern Standard Time.
When betting on the Super Bowl note that the Ravens have a 3-2 record on the road in the postseason. They lost their last playoff game 20-3 against the Colts.
Oddsmakers put the Baltimore Ravens at plus 1200 to take the title this year. They are currently in second place in the AFC North with a 12-4 record. In recent Ravens’ news Pro Bowl free safety Ed Reed has returned to practice since battling a rib injury, but Ngata and Suggs are still sitting out. When prepping for the Chiefs wildcard game this weekend their plan is to get first downs, keep themselves on the field and run a lot of plays. But in their last game before this weekend they only managed one touchdown, totaled 199 yards and went 2 for 11 in third downs conversions during a 13-7 win over the Bengals.
