One thing the Ravens have never lacked, even in the early days where losses were commonplace, is confidence.
The Ravens are one of a handful of teams that can go into any stadium and not let the crowd get to them. And with wins in hostile environments building over the years, the Ravens seem to exude this confidence no matter the location. The last three times the Ravens have been in New England they've played excellent. Two of those times were wins. The other one was as close as it possibly gets.
As Ravens receiver Torrey Smith told reporters this week, it doesn't matter where they play.
"We could be going to play on Mars and I’d still be very confident," Smith said. "That’s just how it is. We’re confident in our team; we’re confident in the work we’ve put in. We don’t feel like we’re here by surprise. And it really doesn’t matter if we don’t go out there and win on [Saturday], but we have to put our best foot forward. That’s what we’re doing in practice, and [we are going to] go out there and try to win a ball game."
