The Browns are still holding out hope with their second-half schedule

Last week, Baltimore Ravens fans weren’t believers. In fact, one fewer fan believed in the Ravens after the win against the Cincinnati Bengals. This week, it changed. Fans are now believers after the Ravens went into Seattle and beat the Seahawks in the pouring rain, 30-16.

That’s right, the Ravens jumped from 62% to a whopping 92%, far above any other AFC North team. Speaking...

Help Wanted: Pass Rusher

Heading into the bye week, the Ravens will be looking at every avenue possible to bolster the pass rush

Heading into the 2019 season, the Ravens secondary was being touted as one of the most talented and deep positions in all the NFL. Fast-forward a few weeks and this same secondary had lost both Jimmy Smith for an extended period and newly extended Tavon Young for the season. This same secondary had allowed three straight 300-plus yard passers and looked to be one of the weak spots on a...

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports News & Notes: Brandon Williams Played His Best Game in Seattle - Ryan Mink

“Brandon Williams, I thought, played his best game as a Raven in a long time, since I’ve been here,” said Defensive Line Coach Joe Cullen, who came to Baltimore in 2016.

“He gave us some really good push up the middle and hits on Russell there when we needed it the most. At times he got beat, but he did a great job finding a way to get off blocks, bottling up the run game and...

Ravens Unsung Hero of Week 7

Photo by Abbie Parr/Getty Images

The Baltimore Ravens went into a hostile road environment and overcame MVP candidate Russell Wilson to notch their fifth victory of the season in Week 7.

The defense produced their best showing of 2019 in Seattle. Brandon Williams was dominant up front. The newly acquired Marcus Peters and established playmaker Marlon Humphrey each scored defensive touchdowns. And once again, Lamar Jackson willed the offense to the end zone.

A few unheralded Ravens also...

By whatever means possible

Rewind to three weeks ago. The Ravens had just dropped a home game against the Browns by 15 points. They allowed 40 points, 530 yards of offense and gave up an 87-yard touchdown run to RB Nick Chubb - on top of seeing Jarvis Landry catch eight passes for 167 yards.

It marked the third consecutive game that Baltimore’s defense struggled to prevent big plays and allowed a 300-yard passer: Kyler Murray, Patrick Mahomes and Baker...

Bye week blues ...

With the Steelers and Browns on their bye weeks, the Ravens and Bengals were the only AFC North squads to take the field this past weekend. Cincinnati dropped another home game to the Jaguars and remain winless on the season.

Baltimore, though, picked up an upset victory over Russell Wilson and the Seahawks on the road. Lamar Jackson and company now have a three-game advantage over Cleveland and Pittsburgh in the division and sit...

Ravens News 10/22: Defense regaining form, Bethel waived and more

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports Aaron Rodgers, Ravens’ defense among those returning to form - Gregg Rosenthal

1) The Ravens’ defense is coming around.

With Peters and Marlon Humphrey able to play man coverage on the outside, defensive coordinator Wink Martindale has been freed up to get more creative with his blitzes up front. Against the Seahawks, Baltimore became the first team this season to hold Russell Wilson to less than 8.1 yards per throw and below 64 percent in completion...

Ravens release CB Justin Bethel

On Monday, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh announced the release of cornerback Justin Bethel. He also called him “the best special teams player in the NFL.” Bethel didn’t lose his job for performance reasons. Instead, Harbaugh admitted that the Ravens were releasing the veteran in order to potentially pick up a fourth-round compensatory pick. It’s complicated. Or, as Harbaugh put it, it’s a “funky” rule that will give the Ravens some extra firepower in the draft after...

Ravens LB McPhee (triceps) likely out for season

Ravens outside linebacker Pernell McPhee is expected to miss the rest of the season after likely tearing his triceps Sunday at Seattle, coach John Harbaugh announced Monday.

Ravens OLB Pernell McPhee's triceps injury is expected to end his season

The Baltimore Ravens may be without outside linebacker Pernell McPhee the remainder of the season due to a triceps injury. Shortly afterward, head coach John Harbaugh confirmed this report. McPhee signed a one-year deal with Baltimore this past offseason after spending a year playing with Washington. Originally a fifth-round pick by the Ravens in 2011, he also played with Chicago for three years. On the season, the outside linebacker has tallied 19 tackles and three sacks. For his career,...

Ravens’ Pernell McPhee suffers triceps tear

After some injury-plagued seasons, Pernell McPhee played in the Ravens’ first seven games this season. Unfortunately, the veteran outside linebacker will not participate in the rest of Baltimore’s 2019 campaign. A triceps tear will shelve McPhee, John Harbaugh said (per Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic, on Twitter). McPhee re-signed with the Ravens this offseason, returning to the team for which he began his career in 2011. McPhee battled injuries during his time with the Bears and had not...

Week 7 stats: 126 rushing yards, 3 touchdowns

David Johnson was active despite dealing with an ankle injury, but Chase Edmonds ended up getting the majority of the workload this week. In fact, Edmonds finished with 27 carries and Johnson only had 1. Johnson will certainly have a larger role when he is at full strength. Nevertheless, Edmonds has earned a role in Arizona's offense. Plus, he proved in...

Monday Hangover, Week 7: A game-changing victory

Well, that was awesome. The Ravens went into Seattle facing a proposition; get a win here and be recognized as one of the better teams in the AFC, or take a loss and drop back into relative anonymity among the rest of the conference.

They obviously did the former and they did it in style, with Lamar making some highlight reel-type plays and some new acquisitions coming in and making a big time impact in their own right. There’s a lot to talk about so...

1. The MVP favorite entering Week 7, Russell Wilson was no match for his counterpart on Sunday afternoon in Seattle. Lamar Jackson bounced back from an inconsistent first half to captain one of the most impressive second halves a quarterback has played this season. After going three-and-out on the Ravens’ first possession out of halftime, Baltimore took a lead it would not relinquish on two...
