The Ravens didn’t enjoy quite the same offensive explosion Week 2 against the Cardinals as they did in Week 1 in Miami, but they still made some big plays when they needed to most.
Thanks to their success against both opponents, the Ravens offense is now being mentioned along some of the most prolific offenses in NFL history.
The latest impressive stat? The Ravens have gained 1,083 yards on offense through two games, which is the third-most in NFL history.
The two teams ahead of them are the ‘91 Bills and the ‘11 Patriots, both of whom eventually made the Super Bowl.
Of course, this doesn’t guarantee anything for Baltimore. The Dolphins are actively tanking, and may end up as one of the worst teams in NFL history, while the Cardinals are coming off a season in which they fielded one of the worst defenses in the league. Plus, they were without Patrick Peterson in their secondary.
But plenty of teams have started hot before, and plenty have faced weak competition. And yet only two teams have ever been more successful than the Ravens through two weeks.
Lamar Jackson set a few records of his own Sunday, including becoming the first player in NFL history to pass for at least 270 yards while rushing for 120 yards in the same game.
It’s another in a rapidly-growing list of historic accomplishments for the Ravens’ new-look offense. Expect even more fireworks in Week 3, as Lamar Jackson leads the Ravens against the Chiefs’ own high-octane offense in Kansas City.
