Below you will find a Week 15 roundup for the Ravens in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 8

Linebacker Patrick Queen (28th overall) has been a starter from day one. He's had ups and downs but has filled up the stat sheet (91 tackles, two sacks, six QB hits, two forced fumbles and an interception). If the season ended today, the Ravens would miss the playoffs. But after their thrilling win over the Browns, they're positioned to make a run in the final three weeks.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 10

Winning at Baltimore Monday night was huge for this team. The schedule is soft the rest of the way. They are getting it going at the right time.

USA Today -- Rank: 10

QB Lamar Jackson has started 34 games, and Baltimore has rushed for 100 yards in every single one ... and is on verge of being playoff entry in all three of his NFL campaigns.

ESPN -- Rank: 10

The Ravens are the only NFL team to rank in the top 10 on offense, defense and special teams. So why is Baltimore battling for its playoff life? Lamar Jackson and the Ravens have regressed from an unstoppable force to an inconsistent attack. Baltimore went from being the only offense averaging more than 30 points per game last season to being in the middle of the league in scoring. An injury to All-Pro left tackle Ronnie Stanley, highly criticized playcalling and the lack of a dominant wide receiver have all contributed to the Ravens' occasional struggles on offense. -- Jamison Hensley -- Rank: 8

"And here comes Lamar Jackson!" It was a call by ESPN's Steve Levy that will go down in Monday Night Football history. Jackson emerged from the locker room just in time to save the day -- and possibly the season -- for the Ravens in a 47-42 win over the Browns in Cleveland. That is what an MVP does. Jackson's heroics provided cover for a Ravens defense that imploded in the final quarter, and Justin Tucker reaffirmed his status as the greatest kicker alive with his 55-yard game-winner in the final seconds. The Ravens are suddenly alive and well in the AFC playoff race, and Jackson looks like a man on a mission ... as long as he can get those mysterious cramps under control.
