Before that historic game at Allegiant finally before fans, let’s look at some key aspects of John Harbaugh’s team.
11-5, tied for second place in AFC North. Went 1-1 in playoffs. Lost at Buffalo in AFC divisional playoffs.
2021 preseason record:
3-0. Baltimore has won 20 straight games in the preseason, which is an NFL record.
Week 1 factoid:
The Ravens have been monsters in Week 1 recently. In the past four season openers, Baltimore has outscored its opponents by a score of 164-19. You read that correctly. That means they are averaging 41 points a game in that stretch, while allowing an average of just 4.75 a game. Clearly, Harbaugh focusses on winning in training camp and it shows.
Early Ravens’ injury report:
Running back J.K. Dobbins is out for the season with a knee injury. Receivers Rashod Bateman and Miles Boykin are out for at least three weeks. Tight end Nick Boyle is questionable to play Monday with a knee injury. We will hear more about Baltimore’s injuries as the week progresses.
Ravens -4.5 points. O/U 52.
