OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens plan to be more creative in how they use their tight ends this season to get them more involved in the passing attack.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Practice this week for the Baltimore Ravens looked a bit like it did at the end of last season.
Several significant absences — including quarterback Lamar Jackson.
Wednesday was the first day reporters were invited to observe one of the Ravens' organized team activities.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens have signed coach John Harbaugh to a three-year contract extension through 2025.
The Ravens announced the move Tuesday. Harbaugh is entering his 15th season at the helm.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens hired Kerry Dixon as an assistant quarterbacks coach.
The Ravens announced the move Monday.
Dixon joins coach John Harbaugh's staff after 15 seasons as a college assistant, most recently as wide receivers coach at Georgia Tech from 2019-21.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Ravens coach John Harbaugh has begun the process to make Baltimore a contender again after a frustrating season that ended with six straight defeats.
“I’m pretty fired up, excited, ready to go,” Harbaugh said Monday during his first news conference since the season ended.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens have hired Mike Macdonald as their defensive coordinator, bringing him back from the college ranks after a season at Michigan.
Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Friday night he is parting ways with defensive coordinator Don Martindale.
“After several productive conversations, Don and I have agreed to move forward in separate directions," Harbaugh said in a statement.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Lamar Jackson will miss a fourth consecutive game for the Baltimore Ravens to end the regular season.
Baltimore ruled Jackson out for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh because of his ankle injury.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Baltimore star Lamar Jackson missed practice again Friday because of his injured ankle, and the Ravens listed him as questionable for Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Rams.
Just like the Super Bowl, the draft, and the Jets missing the playoffs, there is another ritual in every NFL season.
The coaching carousel.
It's spinning already with two openings, in Las Vegas and Jacksonville, forced by the departures of two disgraced coaches, Jon Gruden and Urban Meyer.
Lamar Jackson is back at practice, and Tyler Huntley could be available soon.
The Baltimore Ravens won't ever return to full strength this season, but with two games to play, perhaps the worst is behind them.
The Baltimore Ravens have remained competitive all season despite injuries that have decimated the roster.
Against Cincinnati, it finally looked like one team's backups trying to stop another team's stars.
CINCINNATI (AP) — A Baltimore Ravens team ravaged by injuries and illness had no choice but to put Sunday’s battle for first place at Cincinnati in the hands of a quarterback who was signed 10 days earlier.
CINCINNATI (AP) — Depleted by injuries and COVID-19 protocols, the Baltimore Ravens have dropped three straight but remain in the thick of the crowded AFC playoff race.
The inconsistent Cincinnati Bengals are tied with the Ravens for the lead in the AFC North, but the potential postseason field is so crowded that a loss will send one of them tumbling back into the pack.
2 go or not 2 go. That is the question.
It's a query Ravens coach John Harbaugh has faced twice lately, and many times in the past. It's one that fellow AFC North coach Mike Tomlin of the Steelers — yes, two of the NFL's best sideline men — also has been asked a bunch.
John Harbaugh again went for the win and the AFC North became even more jumbled.
The Ravens (8-6) lost their third straight game Sunday when Tyler Huntley threw incomplete to Mark Andrews on a 2-point conversion attempt after Baltimore had rallied for two touchdowns in the final five minutes to get within one point of Green Bay.
BALTIMORE (AP) — In the past three weeks, the Baltimore Ravens have gone for three big 2-point conversions.
If they'd converted any of them, they might be in a much safer spot right now in the playoff chase.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Lamar Jackson missed practice because of his injured ankle, and the Baltimore Ravens are bringing in another quarterback just in case.
Jets coach Robert Saleh announced that Josh Johnson was heading to Baltimore from New York’s practice squad.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — This was the absence Baltimore could least afford. The Ravens are hopeful it won't linger.
Lamar Jackson missed most of Sunday's loss at Cleveland after spraining his ankle, but a day later, coach John Harbaugh said the star quarterback did not have a high ankle sprain.
Baltimore Ravens star quarterback Lamar Jackson left the stadium in a protective boot after spraining his right ankle in Sunday’s 24-22 road loss to the Cleveland Browns, a concerning sight for a banged-up team trying to hold on to the AFC North lead.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Lamar Jackson's right ankle is even less sturdy, and so is Baltimore's hold on the bunched-up AFC North.
The Ravens' superstar quarterback suffered a sprain in the first quarter and didn't return Sunday as the first-place Ravens lost 24-22 to the Cleveland Browns, who kept their playoff hopes alive with a bounce-back win.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens came within inches of creating some much-needed breathing room in the AFC North.
Instead, they fell short in an agonizing loss to a division rival — and now coach John Harbaugh's team has yet another major injury concern.
John Harbaugh has the best kicker in the NFL, currently and possibly ever. Yet, trailing by one point, he left Justin Tucker on the sideline Sunday night and went for a 2-point conversion in the dying seconds at Pittsburgh.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — John Harbaugh went for the win, and it didn't work out for the Baltimore Ravens.
Lamar Jackson led Baltimore to a touchdown with 12 seconds to play, but his throw on the 2-point conversion was too far in front of tight end Mark Andrews.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — If the end is near for Ben Roethlisberger, he's not telling. Not publicly anyway. The longtime Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback insists he won't make a final decision about his future until January at the earliest.
BALTIMORE (AP) — Give John Harbaugh and the Baltimore Ravens credit for self awareness.
They have the best record in the AFC now, but at this point it's hard to deny that they have a lot of room for improvement.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens activated linebacker Malik Harrison from injured reserve Saturday, less than four weeks after he was struck on the leg by a stray bullet.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — No matter who is at quarterback, the Baltimore Ravens are a tough team to put away in close games.
This time it was Tyler Huntley, forced into action because Lamar Jackson was ill, who led Baltimore to a touchdown in the final minute Sunday for a 16-13 victory at Chicago.
CHICAGO (AP) — Tyler Huntley was on the way to the game Sunday when he got the message from Lamar Jackson.
The Ravens' star quarterback was too sick to play.
Subbing for Jackson, Huntley led a winning drive capped by Devonta Freeman's 3-yard run with 22 seconds remaining, and the Baltimore Ravens beat the Chicago Bears 16-13.
CHICAGO (AP) — Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears because of an illness.
Jackson's absence is a huge blow for the Ravens (6-3) as they try to bounce back from a loss at Miami and maintain their slim lead in the AFC North over Pittsburgh (5-3-1), with Cincinnati (5-4) and Cleveland (5-5) not far behind.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens have ruled out receiver Marquise Brown for Sunday's game at Chicago with a thigh injury.
The Ravens also added Lamar Jackson to their injury report Saturday.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Justin Houston reached the 100-sack mark, then made good on his plan to ask for a keepsake from the opposing quarterback.
“We switched jerseys after the game, so I was able to get the jersey,” the Baltimore linebacker said.
In a most unpredictable of NFL seasons, with only the Detroit Lions showing true consistency — and not quite what you seek — pinpointing the best performances at the halfway mark is a particularly difficult task.
The Baltimore Ravens weren't climbing out of this hole. Not the way their offense was sputtering, completely unable to counter what Miami was doing.
“This falls squarely on me as the head coach,” Baltimore's John Harbaugh said.
The Baltimore Ravens do nothing easily.
Yes, they have the AFC's best record among teams that have had their bye (6-2; Tennessee is 7-2). Their excitement quotient is off the charts, and their special teams are, well, very special.
The last time the Minnesota Vikings played at Baltimore was eight years ago — yet Ravens coach John Harbaugh can still recall many of the details vividly.
“I remember getting the lead with like two minutes left and thinking it's OK.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens are back from their open date — and they were still practicing without Sammy Watkins and Latavius Murray on Wednesday.
It was a reminder that the team's injury issues are too significant to be cured by one week off.
Tom Matte, who spent his entire 12-year NFL career as a gritty running back for the Baltimore Colts — except for a star turn for three games in 1965 as their quarterback — has died. He was 82.
The Baltimore Ravens confirmed Matte's death during coach John Harbaugh's news conference Wednesday.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Baltimore Ravens starting linebacker Malik Harrison was recovering Monday after being struck in the leg by a stray bullet while police said he was outside a Cleveland nightclub.
The Ravens released a statement saying Harrison suffered a non-life-threatening injury when he was shot in the left calf while attending a gathering Sunday night.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — When the Baltimore Ravens lost running backs J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards to preseason knee injuries, it felt like a crisis — and the team's health concerns have not exactly gone away since then.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — After the past two weeks, John Harbaugh’s point about the nature of the NFL is well taken.
“A week ago, you’re being crowned the best ever, and we’re sitting there going, ‘Whoa whoa, it’s one week,’” the Baltimore coach said Monday.
BALTIMORE (AP) — Humiliated at home by a team they usually dominate, the Baltimore Ravens lamented their untimely penalties, missed tackles and shoddy pass coverage in a 41-17 blowout loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — At first, John Harbaugh said this was just one excellent game. It didn't necessarily indicate anything about his team's long-term prospects.
Then, when asked whether a 28-point victory over another division leader might raise eyebrows around the NFL, Harbaugh admitted it probably would.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Baltimore coach John Harbaugh was asked recently to rank the pulsating finishes these past few weeks that have put his team atop the AFC North.
“The next one is going to be the best one,” Harbaugh said with a laugh.
BALTIMORE (AP) — Even more than usual, the Baltimore Ravens needed Lamar Jackson to do pretty much everything as they tried to climb out of a second-half hole.
Their running backs had been stopped, and another key offensive player had left with an injury — but the Ravens still had their star quarterback, whose latest scintillating effort may have been the best of his young career.
Monday, Oct. 11
Colts at Ravens, 8:15 p.m. EDT. The Colts (1-3), who played in Baltimore from 1953-83 before their middle-of-the-night move to Indianapolis in March 1984, are coming off their first win of the season.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — By the end of last week, it was clear that Baltimore's streak of 100-yard rushing games mattered to coach John Harbaugh.
His players are also aware of it, although some of them have downplayed it to some degree.
DENVER (AP) — Victory formation is for losers. The Baltimore Ravens wanted the rushing record.
So, John Harbaugh isn't one bit sorry for not having Lamar Jackson take a knee to close out their rout at Denver.
DENVER (AP) — Vic Fangio didn't appreciate John Harbaugh's decision to have Lamar Jackson sweep left on the final snap of Baltimore's 23-7 win in Denver just so the Ravens could match the longest streak in NFL history of 100-yard rushing games.
DENVER (AP) — Lamar Jackson won this one with his right arm. He used his quick feet to crown Baltimore's 23-7 thumping of the Denver Broncos and tie an NFL rushing record.
The Ravens (3-1) were in danger of coming up just short of matching the Steelers’ longstanding mark for consecutive games with at least 100 yards rushing before Baltimore cornerback Anthony Averett intercepted Broncos backup QB Drew Lock in the end zone with 3 seconds left.
