2020 NFL Power Rankings: Baltimore Ravens

Throughout the 2020 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:

Below you will find a Week 7 roundup for the Ravens in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 4

EPR and I have the Ravens and Titans flip-flopped. Before the season, if you would've told Ravens fans that they'd be 5-1 with an NFL-best plus-75 point differential going into their bye, they probably would've been thrilled. But as weird as it might seem, their performance has been uneven. On Sunday, the Ravens got outscored 22-6 in the fourth quarter, and the Eagles were a two-point conversion away from tying the game. Baltimore had 12 penalties for 132 yards. Offensively, the Ravens are all the way down to 23rd in TruMedia's Expected Points Added (EPA) model. This team is talented, well-coached and has a high ceiling. But the bottom line is they need to play much better to reach their Super Bowl aspirations.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 4

They are 5-1 heading to their bye and I still don't think they have played close to their best. They have the Steelers coming out of that bye, so they better be ready.

USA Today -- Rank: 6

Baltimore is 5-1 for the third time in franchise's 25-season history. The other two occurrences were precursors to Super Bowl victories.

ESPN -- Rank: 4

Most impactful injury: CB Tavon Young

Since Young suffered a season-ending knee injury in Week 2, the Ravens have replaced their top nickelback with the combination of Jimmy Smith and Anthony Averett. There's no doubt Baltimore would be stronger if Young were covering the slot receiver. The Ravens believe he is one of the top nickelbacks in the NFL when healthy. But Baltimore also is used to not having Young, who has only played in one full game since the start of the 2019 season. If there is a position where the Ravens can absorb an injury, it's in a deep secondary. -- Jamison Hensley

NFL.com -- Rank: 4

The Ravens' offense has been ... fine this year. Baltimore continues to put up points and win games, but this is not the same attack that ripped up the NFL last season. In Sunday's 30-28 win over the Eagles (a strange game Baltimore almost let slip away through lack of attention), the Ravens logged just one drive of more than 50 yards and went three-and-out on five possessions, something that's never happened in the Lamar Jackson era. There's no reason to panic when a team is averaging nearly 30 points per game, but it's something that you notice when you watch the Ravens this year. They're ... fine. Just not unstoppable.
