Ravens propel themselves into the top spot of the division with a record of 11-6
Baltimore is one of the most consistent teams from a competitive aspect among these clubs in the division. The Steelers are probably the only other franchise that has been more consistent when you look at win-loss totals in recent history. Baltimore should be on their way to winning another division title in 2022.
Many fans that cheer on the Steelers will hate this idea of one of their most hated rivals getting another throne for the AFC North. It could very well happen after the Ravens struggled in 2021 as they dealt with many different issues. The biggest problem for them was the number of injuries that piled up for them rather quickly and early on.
That put them behind the eight ball and the biggest issue was the play of Lamar Jackson at quarterback. He seemed to be dealing with injuries of his own and that created a stale offense that could not carry them. This is an improved roster after a successful offseason of solid additions.
This team is still not perfect and presents its own flaws that will cause them to lose. They are an experienced team that will have impact starters back and, in the fold, as healthy contributors. That will pay dividends and get them back into the playoffs as division winners.
The Ravens get back to winning the AFC North after a year of injuries hampered them. The Steelers have too many question marks to win the division but they should stay competitive.
