Where the Ravens defense can improve in 2018

While the Ravens offense justifiably receives the most scrutiny and examination, the defense will need to elevate their play as well to snap the playoff drought in 2018.

Lamar Jackson says Chargers were first team to ask him to work out as receiver

Before the draft, new Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson refuted reports that multiple teams wanted to him to work out as a wide receiver.

Ravens are betting on young pass rushers to rise in 2018

While the Baltimore Ravens defense led the NFL in turnovers last season, they struggled down the stretch, and the team’s playoffs hopes were ended in Week 17 against the Cincinnati Bengals when the unit was burned on the now infamous 4th-and-12 play.

The defense had 41 sacks a year ago, but other than play from Terrell Suggs and Matthew Judon, not much of it came from the outside. Suggs and Judon combined for 19 of those 41 sacks last season. In 2018, Baltimore will look to get more...
