2021 NFL Power Rankings: Baltimore Ravens

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:

Below you will find a Week 3 roundup for the Ravens in our consensus 2021 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 9

Fantasy surprise: WR Marquise Brown

The Ravens added wide receivers in the draft (27th overall pick Rashod Bateman) and in free agency (Sammy Watkins), but Brown has become a legitimate No. 1 target. Teams have crowded the middle to take away tight end Mark Andrews as an option, and Lamar Jackson has responded by getting the ball more to the outside and into the arms of Brown. His 182 yards receiving ranks 10th in the NFL -- more than DeAndre Hopkins and Stefon Diggs. Perhaps Brown's production shouldn't be a surprise. Dating back to Week 12 of last season, Brown has caught eight touchdown passes in his past eight games. No one in the NFL has more. -- Jamison Hensley

NFL.com -- Rank: 3

Lamar Jackson reminded the football world on Sunday night there's nobody quite like him, and his utter uniqueness is what makes the Ravens capable of beating anyone. The former MVP willed his short-handed team to a thrilling 36-35 comeback win over the defending conference champion Chiefs, who were shut out 12-0 in the game's final quarter. Jackson seemed to do it all, but he did have some help: The defensive hero was rookie first-round pick Odafe Oweh, whose forced fumble and recovery late in the fourth quarter halted a seemingly preordained game-winning drive by Kansas City and set the stage for Baltimore's gutsy fourth-and-1 conversion to seal the game. The Ravens are in business.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 9

That was an impressive victory over the Chiefs, a team that had their number in recent years. The offense looked great, but the defense needs to be better.

USA Today -- Rank: 7

QB Lamar Jackson has claimed another of Michael Vick's spots in the record book after hitting triple digits in both passing and rushing yards in a game for the ninth time. And Jackson edited in style while beating Patrick Mahomes and Kansas City for the first time.

The Athletic -- Rank: 5

Lamar Jackson the runner was outstanding in the comeback win over the Chiefs, rushing for 107 yards. Lamar Jackson the thrower had a pair of interceptions, but was pretty accurate (18-of-26) while also adding a touchdown through the air. There's no question he's Baltimore's franchise QB -- as with Baker Mayfield, we're just awaiting his next contract. Sunday night's game showed some of Jackson's limitations, but also how he can bring his team back against the game's best.
