Baltimore Ravens Week 10 NFL Power Rankings Roundup

Throughout the 2021 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

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

  • Average ranking: 6.0 (6th)
  • Best ranking: 5th (CBS Sports)
  • Worst ranking: 7th (USA Today)

Below you will find a Week 10 roundup for the Ravens in our consensus 2021 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 6

Bold second-half prediction: Lamar Jackson will pass for 5,000 yards and rush for 1,000 yards.

Jackson is on pace for 4,694 passing yards and 1,275 yards rushing, so he will have to pick it up through the air. It won't be easy, either. Six of Jackson's final nine games will come against teams that rank in the top half of the league in pass defense. But the Ravens' best playmakers are in the passing game with tight end Mark Andrews and receivers Marquise "Hollywood" Brown and Rashod Bateman. So when Jackson isn't scrambling for yards, he'll need to throw it to beat the likes of the Rams and Packers down the stretch. -- Jamison Hensley -- Rank: 6

The Ravens won on Sunday with a relentless offense that wouldn't let up. Lamar Jackson threw for 266 yards and ran for 120 more, Devonta Freeman looked rejuvenated in a supporting role and Justin Tucker delivered the overtime field goal that clinched a 34-31 win over the Vikings. The Ravens remain an imperfect operation -- the defense was pushed around early and late, and the special teams gave up a 98-yard kickoff return for touchdown on the first play of the second half that would have broken a weaker team. That's not Baltimore, a tough and resilient squad that enters the season's midpoint atop the AFC North.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 5

They made it interesting against the Vikings, but they found a way to win it in overtime. The passing game came to life, which it needed to do. The defense has to pick it up.

USA Today -- Rank: 7

Already the only quarterback to rush for 1,000 yards and pass for 3,000 in the same season, Lamar Jackson is well on his way to a 1,000-4,000 campaign.

The Athletic -- Rank: 6

Are they good? Yes, but you better hold your breath. The Ravens seem to only play close contests, but this is a team you want to trust in those end-of-game situations, between Lamar Jackson's big-play ability, John Harbaugh's coaching chutzpah and Justin Tucker's leg.
