Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh will present specially-made game balls to three season ticket holders following Thursday’s practice at the team’s Owings Mills training facility. The fans, who were chosen at random by a computer, will receive the balls for contributing to the Ravens’ first-ever undefeated (8-0) season at home, which was capped by last Saturday’s win over Cleveland.

"The credit goes to the players, first, it goes to the coaches, but it also goes to our fans," Harbaugh stated following the victory. "I think over the course of time since the Ravens came to Baltimore, and for my experience here in the last four years, there’s not a better stadium in the league than M&T Bank Stadium. There’s not a better bunch of fans than Ravens fans, everywhere, but especially on gameday in Baltimore."

"On behalf of the players and the coaches, we are giving the game ball to the Ravens’ fans for this 8-0 season. … Thank you to our fans, thank you for what you do, and you are a huge part of an undefeated season at home."

Baltimore has won 18 of its past 19 games at M&T Bank Stadium, with the Ravens compiling a 27-5 record at home since Harbaugh became head coach in 2008.
