Last year the Baltimore Ravens made it to the NFL’s Final Four, and they were a dropped pass away from the Super Bowl. But this year the Ravens have seen Terrell Suggs, perhaps their best all-around player, suffer a torn Achilles tendon. So does that mean the Ravens fall out of the Top Four?
Yes, but not by very far.
In our preseason power poll, we’ve put the Ravens in fifth place. Losing Suggs for some or all of the season will hurt, but there’s still a lot to like about the Ravens, and we still view them as the team to beat in the AFC North.
