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 6 roundup for the Ravens in our consensus 2021 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 8

Most improved player: CB Anthony Averett

How they've improved: A fourth-round pick in 2018, Averett has stepped into the starting lineup to replace Marcus Peters. A capable backup for years, Averett has allowed the lowest passer rate in coverage through four games, according to Pro Football Focus. Can the Ravens afford to keep him after the season? Averett could become a more sought-after free agent this offseason because of this improvement. -- Jamison Hensley

NFL.com -- Rank: 7

Lamar Jackson reminded the world on Monday night that he is one of one. The Ravens' quarterback authored the greatest passing game of his career, carving up the Colts for 442 yards and four touchdowns in a ridiculous comeback win. The Ravens fell behind 22-3 early and were trailing by 16 points in the fourth quarter before ripping off the final 22 points of the game. The comeback included two Mark Andrews touchdowns and, ridiculously, two Mark Andrews two-point conversions. When the Ravens won the overtime coin toss, the game was already over. Jackson marched Baltimore through an exhausted Indy defense for 68 yards on 10 plays, ending with the Hollywood Brown game-winner. It was a brilliant comeback that just might have been Jackson's best performance yet.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 8

That was a special comeback by the Ravens on Monday night. Lamar Jackson has made huge strides as a passer. But that defense has issues.

USA Today -- Rank: 7

Credit Baltimore's resolve -- and QB Lamar Jackson's -- as it stole a game it probably didn't deserve to win. Credit the football gods for withholding the record for consecutive 100-yard rushing games, which John Harbaugh's team definitely didn't deserve to claim.

The Athletic -- Rank: 8

Breakout player: Lamar Jackson? Can we say that? On Monday night, Jackson became the first player in NFL history with 400 passing yards and an 85 percent completion percentage in a game. The former MVP had 499 of the Ravens' 523 yards of offense, and nothing against Josh Allen, but Jackson should be getting more MVP consideration because his defense hasn't put up two shutouts.
