SB Nation posted a story on the teams in the AFC, titled, "Why Your Team Will Make The Playoffs." Basically, they looked at every team in th conference and wrote a short paragraph or, in the Baltimore Ravens case, two short sentences, on why the team has a chance to continue to play after the regular season ends.
Joel Thorman, who penned the article, wrote on the AFC North teams, starting with the Pittsburgh Steelers, focusing on their consistency as well as their defense. For the Ravens, he simply started of by writing two words: "See above."
The rest of his reasoning the Ravens will reach the post-season for an NFL-leading fifth consecutive season?
"There are few guarantees in life but we know what Baltimore's defense will do. We know they'll be great and we know Baltimore will enter the postseason on their defense's back."
