2020:  The big story is, of course, the healthy return of Big Ben.  If he really is at full strength, the Ravens will have a far tougher road to the AFC North crown in 2020.  The D was very Steel Curtain-ish last year, and could be better this time around.  Chase Claypool may have been the steal of the draft in round 2, and could be that rare WR who has an impact in year one.

Projected 2020 Record: 11-5-0
