The book is officially closed on the Ravens 2020 season following a 17-3 playoff defeat at the hands of the Bills last weekend. With this in mind, it’s never too early to begin thinking about what the future holds next season for the team.
With almost $30 million in cap room for 2021, Baltimore can be more aggressive than most as it pursues Jackson’s extension and elevating the skill around him to hopefully make a legitimate Super Bowl push.
The Lamar-era Ravens will enter their fourth season in 2021 seemingly just a few tweaks shy of establishing a legit run at a Super Bowl appearance. They remind me of the early McNabb years of Philly when the Eagles did an extended run of NFC near-dominance (2001-2005) riding a dynamic young QB with legs and a stiff defense.
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson had a miserable showing against the Buffalo Bills on Saturday night. Jackson's Ravens teammates had some thoughts on how the QB can improve over the offseason.
We correctly predicted the Ravens would need to hold the Buffalo Bills to 17 points in order to win. Unfortunately for Baltimore, the Ravens were completely throttled on offense by an ingenious mix of blitz pressure, running lane containment and zone pass coverage from Sean McDermott and his DC Leslie Frazier.
