11. Baltimore Ravens

Believe it or not, Lamar Jackson is officially 3-0 as a starter for the Baltimore Ravens after the rookie quarterback did just enough on Sunday to help his team take down the Atlanta Falcons. A few weeks ago, the Ravens appeared to be heading towards another season of coming up short of a playoff berth, but with three wins in a row, this team is playing some of their best football at the best time.

Normally, Baltimore’s defense has been the major strength of the team, and watching them cause all sorts of problems for Atlanta on offense shows just how good this team can be. And thanks to some help from across the league, the Ravens currently hold the final Wild Card spot in the AFC playoff picture, although they still have plenty of work to do with four games to go.

Still, just seeing this Baltimore team sit at 3-0 since Joe Flacco went down with a hip injury means John Harbaugh deserves a ton of credit for making sure his team stayed focused. When seeing how two of their four remaining opponents happen to be the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers, the Ravens need every win possible at this point.
