Save on every ticket. Guaranteed.
The defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens (How’s that sound Baltimore fans?) are back to work in 2013 looking to become the become the first team to repeat since the New England Patriots in 2004 and 2005. Though they’ll have to make do without defensive stalwarts and future first-ballot Hall of Famers Ray Lewis (retirement) and Ed Reed (Houston Texans), the Ravens boast one of the league’s most successful front offices and a rocket-armed Quarterback dead set on proving his worth as one of the best in the NFL.
Named for legendary Baltimore poet Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven, the Baltimore Ravens came to be in 1996 after team owner Art Modell moved his Cleveland Browns to the city in one of the most controversial business decisions in the history of sports. (Among the other infamous moves on that list: In 1983, Baltimore had their beloved Colts stolen away from them by Indianapolis.)
With Ozzie Newsome in place as the General Manager since the team’s inception, the Ravens have been a model of excellence and consistency, winning two Super Bowls and making nine playoff appearances since 2000.
Building a Dynasty in Baltimore
Playing in the smash-mouth AFC North alongside fierce rivals the Pittsburgh Steelers, Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns, the Ravens have long been known for their hard-nosed, ball-hawking defense. But in the last few years, thanks in large part to the continued evolution of Joe Flacco, a crew of talented receivers and emergence of Rutgers product Ray Rice, the Ravens now boast one of the league’s most explosive offenses. After knocking off the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game, head coach John Harbaugh got to face his brother Jim and the San Francisco 49ers where they won a Super Bowl so electrifying the stadium lights buckled under the pressure.
