The Baltimore Ravens have won three playoff games in two years under John Harbaugh, including sending the Patriots to their first home playoff loss in the Bill Belichick-era last January. In both seasons, the Ravens reached the postseason as wildcards. Now, with some key roster additions, the sky is the limit for the new favorites in the AFC North. Our 32 NFL teams in 32 days season preview series continues with a look at the 2010 Baltimore Ravens. Football Scores

Sample StatFox Power Trend for 2010

  • Over the L2 seasons, BALTIMORE is 9-1 ATS (+7.9 Units) vs. teams with a losing record. The Average Score was BALTIMORE 31.1, OPPONENT 9.62010 OUTLOOK NFL Lines
    The Ravens seem to have this wild-card thing figured out. While Pittsburgh and Cincinnati finished atop the AFC North in 2008 and ’09, respectively, Baltimore gained entry to the postseason each season and has a combined three victories. Could the Ravens’ 33-14 dismantling of the Patriots in Foxboro last January be a sign of things to come? With unflappable QB Joe Flacco entering his third season, along with head coach John Harbaugh, this team isn’t too far away. The front office made a bold offseason move, acquiring WR Anquan Boldin (Cardinals), to help achieve the goal of reaching the next step…Baltimore’s running game has ranked among the NFL’s best five in consecutive seasons and elusive Ray Rice (1,339 yards, seven touchdowns) and powerful Willis McGahee (544, 12) comprise one of the best 1-2 punches in the business. Flacco, a year after becoming the first NFL rookie signal-caller to win two playoff games, continued progress with 3,613 yards passing, and 21-12 TD-Int ratio. The addition of Boldin helps his cause and allows coordinator Cam Cameron to go deeper in the playbook. The front line is as solid as they come…Ray Lewis & Co. don’t need an introduction, but the front office felt a little reinforcement for a unit, aging in certain spots, couldn’t hurt. Sergio Kindle (2a-Texas) joins a LB corps that already included Lewis, Terrell Suggs and Jarret Johnson, and beefy Terrence Cody (2b-Alabama) will fit right in with Kelly Gregg and Haloti Ngata in the trenches. In the secondary, when Ed Reed’s healthy and doing his thing, it’s hard to find a better safety in the business…While a wild-card spot would be nothing to complain about, the Ravens have bigger goals in mind. As long as the key parts stay healthy, especially on defense, the AFC North is theirs for the taking. Another double-digit win season and more January action looks like a safe Regular Season Wins Prop: Over/Under 10
    StatFox Steve’s Take: As I just indicated earlier, double-digit wins seem like a safe bet for this team. The real key to how this team has gotten to the upper levels of the NFL has been the offense. Baltimore is not a one-trick pony anymore, and has a potent offense to match its intimidating defense. This is a true Super Bowl contender. I see 12-4. OVER. Football Spreads
