History

The Baltimore Ravens are a member of the NFL’s American Football Conference. In 1996, the club began to play in Baltimore as the Ravens after a controversial move from Cleveland. At the time, team owner Art Modell was in financial trouble and decided to move the Cleveland Browns franchise to Baltimore where he could benefit from a new stadium in the near future.  Although the club relocated and brought along players who were under contract during the time, the team was legally recognized as an expansion franchise by the NFL. Since this was the case, the Browns’ name, team colors, and heritage would remain in Cleveland which was promised a new franchise by the NFL by no later than 1999.

The name Ravens was inspired by poet and famous Baltimore citizen Edgar Allan Poe and was chosen by fan voting within the city of Baltimore. The Ravens began play at Memorial Stadium in 1996 before moving to the new M&T Bank Stadium in 1998. Since the Ravens brought along a full roster of players from Cleveland, they did not endure the usual growing pains most expansion franchises experience.  

After several seasons in Baltimore, the Ravens emerged as one of the better teams in the NFL, led by a hard-nosed defense featuring star linebacker Ray Lewis. Lewis was a huge part of the club’s Super Bowl XXXV championship. During regular season of that year, the Ravens set an NFL record for the fewest points allowed in a 16 game season. (Just 165.)

Ray Lewis became the face of the franchise over the next 13 seasons and helped the Ravens to a second Super Bowl title in 2013 before retiring. The Ravens have become a franchise known for their tough defensive play since moving to Baltimore. The club has qualified for the NFL’s post-season nine times and won four division titles since the 2000 season. The Ravens have truly been one of the most dominant teams in the NFL since their inception. In 2013, Jonathan Ogden became the first Raven to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Ogden played for the Ravens as an offensive lineman from 1996 to 2007.
