Ravens looking to 2024, Fueled by 2023

The Baltimore Ravens are still angry about their season ending to the Kansas City Chiefs, and they’re using it as fuel as they begin to build for the new season.

“I want them talking about everything,” Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said. “What we’re talking about is confronting everything that has to do with us being the very best we can be as a football team and as an individual player. So, if that’s part of the confrontation, ‘Let’s go, man. Let’s talk about it, and let’s get better, and let’s find a way to beat those guys.'”

Ravens looking to build, not make excuses

“Honestly, I still [haven’t] gotten over it,” WR Zay Flowers said. “I still think about it, but I know next year, we have a chance to get back there and try to make it to the Super Bowl, so that’s why I’m working every day and going hard every day to get back to that moment.”

“I believe we were driving the ball down the field — not how we wanted to — but we drove the ball down the field,” QB Lamar Jackson said. “We just have to put points on the board. We had two costly turnovers in the red zone — the game would’ve been different.”

“We lost to them in the playoffs,” Jackson said. “Just us beating them in the regular season doesn’t really do anything; it just helps us keep stacking up wins to hopefully make it to the playoffs if anything to try to get in that same position again and hopefully be successful. It really doesn’t matter who we play [in the] first game; obviously it’s the Chiefs, but I really didn’t care.”

“I believe it hurts more losing before the Super Bowl than actually being a part of it, because we worked so hard [for] 17 weeks, plus the little playoff games, and we get to a game away and lose,” Jackson said. “We didn’t really put any points on the board, and we were just scoring 30 points against crazy teams — great defenses. Don’t get me wrong, that’s a great defense as well, but [we had faced] the top-ranked defenses. We just have to finish.”
