2017 season recap:

The Baltimore Ravens finished with a winning record (9-7) for the first time in three seasons. Defensively, they led the league in interceptions (22), and takeaways (34). However Baltimore's offense struggled in the pass game, ranking 29th. Though the end of the regular season looked like it was enough to push the Ravens into the playoffs, they missed the mark due to the Titans and Bengals end-of-season victories.
