Ravens finally get a break

The Ravens will finally get a break after a tough early-season schedule.
Following Thursdays 23-16 victory over the Browns, a game where the Ravens had to grind out a decision over a stubborn Cleveland team that wouldnt go away, Baltimore now gets a few days off.
And the Ravens are looking forward to that down time.
Im tired, man, Ray Rice said when talking to the media after Thursdays game. I cant wait to have this weekend off. Four games, 17 days, 3-1. I just cant wait to have this weekend off. This win wasnt one of our prettier ones, but its a division win, and were alone in the top of our division. It feels good to come away with the win at home.
The Ravens have played three of their first four games at night, which is a little different from most contests, which teams play in the afternoon. After this, the Ravens will return to the earlier games for most of the rest of the season.
But first, the Ravens get a few days off and will then return next week to the type of weekly schedule they usually deal with.
Well be looking forward to a normal seven-day schedule, and weve got some 1 oclock games coming up, said coach John Harbaugh when talking to media after Thursday's game. So, we are looking forward to that.
The Ravens are fortunateespecially on offense to make it through these first four games without any major injuries. There are some players dealing with some smaller, more nagging injuries and now having 10 days before their next game (in Kansas City) lets them heal up a bit.
The schedule also wound up being tougher because the Ravens didnt play on Sunday afternoon but at night against the Patriots before coming back just four days later for this contest.
I thought we were fortunate to get both of the games home, so we didnt have to travel and something like that, said quarterback Joe Flacco. Its tough, its physically tough. Its good that we came out with a win and now we can get a couple of extra days to heal up and get ready to play Kansas City.

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Sports Illustrated predicts Ravens defense will regress this season

With training camp just eight days away, here is the latest news surrounding the Baltimore Ravens.

1. The Ravens are expected to have one of the best defenses in the NFL this season, but not the No. 1 ranked. Sports Illustrated's Andy Benoit says he predicts the Ravens defense will actually regress due to the loss of C.J. Mosely and Terrell Suggs in free agency. However, not as much as one would expect, he says.

2. Speaking of defense, Ravens outside linebacker Matthew Judon is entering his contract year. The Athletics' Jeff Zrebiec writes that this upcoming season should be a breakout year for Judon who could make a big impact on defense.

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Lamar Jackson organizes private workout with receivers

With training camp just nine days away, here is the latest news surrounding the Baltimore Ravens.

1. Quarterback Lamar Jackson organized an off-site work out with Ravens wide receivers Chris Moore and Willie Snead IV over the weekend. The second-year quarterback followed through with his plan of working with his receivers on his own time before training camp begins next week. Backup quarterback Robert Griffin III was present as well.

2. With the addition of six-time Pro Bowler Earl Thomasthe Ravens secondary was ranked the deepest group in the NFL, according to NFL.com's Chris Wesseling. Pairing Thomas with safety Tony Jefferson creates one of the best safety tandems in the league, and Baltimore has a deep group of cornerbacks in Jimmy Smith, Marlon Humphrey, Brandon Carr, and Tavon Young. The Ravens defense allowed just 17.9 points per game a season ago, which was the second-best mark in the NFL.
