To celebrate the first 8-0 home season in franchise (the Baltimore version of it) history, the Ravens will be giving a game ball to the fans.
In lieu of buying footballs for every season-ticket holder, the team instead will present specially-made balls to three randomly-selected fans.
“The credit goes to the players, first, it goes to the coaches, but it also goes to our fans,” Harbaugh said in a statement released by the team. “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.”
The Ravens have compiled a 27-5 record at home in four seasons under Harbaugh. But the Ravens have yet to play a home playoff game.
With a win on Sunday in Cincinnati, they will.
