Following Week 10, the Baltimore Ravens (6-2) are one of two teams in the AFC with only two losses (Tennessee Titans). As such, they’re pretty high in the recent roundup of power rankings.

No. 6 (+1)

The Ravens won on Sunday with a relentless offense that wouldn’t let up. Lamar Jackson threw for 266 yards and ran for 120 more, Devonta Freeman looked rejuvenated in a supporting role and Justin Tucker delivered the overtime field goal that clinched a 34-31 win over the Vikings. The Ravens remain an imperfect operation — the defense was pushed around early and late, and the special teams gave up a 98-yard kickoff return for touchdown on the first play of the second half that would have broken a weaker team. That’s not Baltimore, a tough and resilient squad that enters the season’s midpoint atop the AFC North. — Dan Hanzus

They made it interesting against the Vikings, but they found a way to win it in overtime. The passing game came to life, which it needed to do. The defense has to pick it up. — Pete Prisco

“Lamar Jackson once again proves how valuable he is to the Ravens, and to the NFL.” — Mike Florio

The Ravens don’t always make it easy but they find a way to get the job done. Baltimore leads a very competitive AFC North. They have a chance to make a run at the No. 1 seed in their conference. — Brandon Lee Gowton

No. 5 (+4)

“Justin Tucker’s 18th career game-winning field goal beat the Vikings, 34-31, and extended his streak to 53 consecutive makes in the fourth quarter and overtime. The Ravens have three wins after trailing by double digits during the second half. The stat of the game was first downs: Ravens 36, Vikings 13.” — Ryan Dunleavy

Bleacher Report

No. 5 (+3)

“The Baltimore Ravens appear to enjoy cutting things close. For the third time this season, it took extra time for a game involving them to be decided. And for the second time, it was the Ravens who came away with the victory.

“In many respects, the game was a microcosm of the Ravens as a team. There were good things, whether it was the 386 total yards posted by quarterback Lamar Jackson or the nine passes for 116 yards hauled in by wide receiver Marquise Brown.” — NFL Staff
