Here is where the Baltimore Ravens rank in terms of average, best and worst:

  • Average ranking: 3.4 (3rd)

  • Worst ranking: 4th (Multiple)

Below you will find a Week 10 roundup for the Ravens in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 3

They delivered one of the most impressive coaching jobs of the week. The Ravens lost left tackle Ronnie Stanley last week. They were playing without cornerback Marlon Humphrey. And Calais Campbell suffered a calf injury in the first quarter and didn't return. It didn't matter. After giving up an early touchdown to the Colts, the Ravens' defense allowed just one field goal on the next nine drives. Marcus Peters came up with a huge interception that turned the game around in the third quarter, and the Ravens' offense seemed to finally find a rhythm in the second half.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 3

That team that showed up in the second half against the Colts is the one we expected to see this season. Maybe that will get the offense cranked up.

USA Today -- Rank: 4

Sunday's triumph at Indianapolis wasn't pretty, but it was the first time QB Lamar Jackson brought Baltimore back from a halftime deficit

ESPN -- Rank: 3

Recalibrated expectation: A wild-card berth

The Ravens began the season looking to repeat as the AFC's top seed, but they have failed to prove their place among the elite teams after falling to both the defending Super Bowl champion Chiefs and undefeated Steelers at home. Baltimore will make the playoffs, but it will likely have to take a different route this time. Trailing the Steelers by two games in the AFC North, the Ravens will probably have to take to the road in the postseason after winning the division the previous two years. -- Jamison Hensley -- Rank: 4

"I will just say the devil was busy this week for us, and we just overcame it." That's how Lamar Jackson summed up a hellish eight-day stretch for the Ravens, one that included a bitter defeat to the Steelers, the loss of star left tackle Ronnie Stanley to injury, Marlon Humphrey's positive coronavirus test and the ensuing march of six Ravens to the COVID-19 list under the "close contact" designation. That's a lot of obstacles, but Baltimore still delivered a 24-10 win over the Colts in Indianapolis. The Ravens had just 55 total yards of offense in the first half, but Jackson and Co. got hot after the intermission, while the Ravens defense gave Philip Rivers and the Colts attack no path to success. A win to build off.
