Ravens going for 21st consecutive preseason win tonight

The Ravens head into tonight’s preseason game against the Titans on an unprecedented winning streak: Baltimore has won 20 consecutive preseason games, the longest streak in NFL history.

Baltimore hasn’t lost a preseason game since 2015, and last year the Ravens broke the all-time record for consecutive preseason wins, a record that had previously stood at 19 straight by Vince Lombardi’s Packers from 1959 to 1962.

The Packers’ streak was broken in a loss to a college all-star team (yes, NFL teams used to play against college all-star teams in the preseason), and the Packers then went on to win four more consecutive preseason games against NFL teams, so those Packers still have the record for most preseason wins against NFL teams at 23. If the Ravens go 3-0 in this preseason, they’ll match that record.

The preseason is meaningless, so perhaps no one should even care about this record, but Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson said last year that he and his teammates do care.

“We want to win at the end of the day,” Jackson said last year. “I don’t care if it’s preseason. We compete against each other in practice. We want to win. It’s good to just keep winning.”

The Ravens will try to keep winning tonight, and make it 21 in a row.

  1. The AFC North…. One coach owns the ‘No Losing Seasons’ trophy and now Harbawl is about to bring home the coveted ‘Most Consecutive Preseason Wins’ trophy. Look out foe these guys.

  2. Preseason games dont mean much, but not losing a game since 2015 is not an accident! This says a lot about Harbaughs ability to coach.

  3. Only team in the NFL more concerned about preseason wins rather than regular/postseason wins. Pretty soon they are going to hang a banner.

    The Ravens should be more concerned about how many of their players got injured last preseason but sure, keep the streak alive.

  4. How many Super Bowls have they won during this streak? Winning the games in the preseason are far less important than getting your team prepared to win games that count. Is it a fun record for those involved? I imagine it is, but if I were a Ravens fan I would want my coaching staff to be more focused on the regular season. If it will benefit the team down the road to play a player that isnt ready (because he needs the experience and the ups and downs of the NFL game) and lose a preseason game, I’m all for it. If you want to keep that player on the bench so that you can get your preseason win record, it will bite you when the games count and he fails in November because he didnt learn the lesson in August, thats a big fail for the coaching staff.

  5. Pre-season records are meaningless. However the Ravens are my pick to win the super bowl this upcoming season and Lamar Jackson will be the MVP.

  6. That’s like winning 20 consecutive one-man races. It’s hard to lose when you’re the only team in the contest. The other teams are using pre-season to prepare for the regular season. Maybe the Ravens use the regular season to prepare for the pre-season.

  7. I just hope they can rush for over 100yds as a team, win or lose, THATs important 🙄

  8. Good for them, will they get a trophy? All-time meaningless games champions.

  9. I saw that game when the Pack lost to the College All Stars. Lombardi was humiliated and I remember the adults going on about how crazy it was…

  10. That’s pretty impressive.
    How many Super Bowls have they been to in that time frame? Or AFC Championship games?
    Or hell, how many playoff wins?

  11. I hate the Ravens more than anyone. But the uninformed posts on this thread are hillarious. Baltimore has more SB championships than many franchises, and one of the best postseason records in the NFL.

    ————————————————
    2017 Cleveland Browns preseason 4-0. Says a lot about Hue Jackson’s ability to coach. Right? Regular season 0-16. Harbaugh’s ability to coach? Three of those mentioned all win preseasons his team didn’t even make the playoffs. The team that won the SB last season was 0-3 in the preseason. Enjoy!

  13. You think maybe Harbaugh confuses the prefixes ‘Pre’ and ‘post?’
    Records don’t lie…

    With the exception of the AFC West this is the best division in football. Yea I’ll say you better look out for these guys.

  15. Well, they’ve won a bunch of playoff games and a couple rings too, so there’s that.

    More than most your bum teams.

    So maybe there’s something to practicing hard and taking it seriously every time you step on a football field.

    Go figure.

  16. This speaks to the quality of their roster depth and the winning mindset brought by the coaching staff.

  17. I find it interesting that preseason records are even kept. Anyone know who the all-time preseason rusher is?

  18. The 1972 undefeated Dolphins went 2-2 in the preseason. So did the 16-0 Patriots. Maybe the Ravens should keep more important things in mind than rushing streaks and preseason wins.

    Over the last five seasons? No you haven’t. Preseason should be about developing players and building your roster. A preseason “win” is worth zero.

  20. What might not be important to you, may mean something to someone else. What do you get winning preseason games? The same thing you get for losing the Superbowl.

    Not during the “preseason winning streak” they haven’t. I fact, I believe they have a single postseason win during that time

  22. They went 2-2 in the preseason the last time they won the SB. Maybe they should try something different.

  23. The Ravens are annually one of the most overhyped teams in football, maybe due to silly things like preseason victories. Every draft we hear about what an excellent drafting team the Ravens are … check their rounds 1-4 picks 2 to 3 years after being drafted … it’s really not that impressive. Some analysts have them winning the North this year … not going to happen … they have serious question marks throughout their roster (including LT, WR, OLB, ILB). It’ll just be another year of Harbaugh whining about injuries and other excuses while defending his QB.

    ________________________________________________________________________

    Here is an informed post for you. The Ravens have won exactly 13 playoff games in their history as a franchise. Of which 7 came during the playoffs leading to their 2 SB wins. Since the last SB win in 2012/2013 they have won 6 playoff games total. They lost 2 preseason games during both SB seasons. And Brian B. was the coach of the first SB win. While better than a few teams are are always in purgatory it is nothing to be bragging about.

  25. if they present the Lamar Hunt trophy to the post-season AFC champs they at least ought to present the pre-season champs a Lamar Jackson trophy.

  26. The Ravens and Titans don’t like each other. Harbaugh and Vrabel don’t like each other. A streak is on the line, albeit a mostly meaningless one. Things could get interesting.

  27. Honestly, Harbaugh gets more grief about this meaningless streak than he gets props as a good coach – which he is. Ravens need to just let it go & lose a preseason gm- it just brings them more disdain.

  28. What many of you don’t realize is they rarely play their starters. About as much as your average team if not less. Lamar has barely played since his rookie season and isn’t even suiting up tonight.

    If you actually watched their preseason games instead of making uninformed posts based on click bait you would know this.

    They just take a different mental approach since Harbaugh was hired. They take it more serious. So they win more.

    By the way, they are 5 and 2 on opening day since the streak so it might actually count for something.
