LONG TERM OUTLOOK: TRENDING DOWN
The Ravens are competing to make the playoffs but their chances are on a downward trend. In our pre-season forecast they had a 63.6% chance of making the playoffs. On 10/5 they had a 90.3% chance before dropping to 13.3% on 11/11. From the start of the season to now their chances are down significantly to 16.8%. Before the start of their 3 game losing streak they were at 86.1%. They have a 3.6% chance of winning their division. Oddsmakers have them at 5/1 to win the division which has an implied probability of 16.7%. The odds still give them a sliver of hope to win the AFC at 2.2% (45/1 odds) and a 1% chance of winning it all (100/1).

SEASON-TO-DATE GRADE: F
Early in the season, we include last season in the analysis. At 4-5 the Ravens are behind their money line projected win total of 5.2 wins. They have been below expectations on the road and at home. Their 2-3 road record is -12% lower than expected. Their 2-2 home record is -12% lower. Losers of 3 in a row they have a 8.1% chance of seeing that extend to 5 straight, but they also have a 25.6% chance of turning things around and winning their next 3 games. The Ravens are a good team (in simulations) and won 55.6% of the simulations vs every other team playing on a neutral court with players available in the playoffs (#9 in the league). Their peak rank was #3 in the league back on 10/16.
They are an average team in points per game. Offensively, they are the #17 ranked team in yards per play. They are the #18 ranked team in offensive TD rate [(PassTD + RushTD) / (Pass Att + Rush Att)]. They are an elite scoring defense, which make sense given their strong yards per play allowed rank.
TEAM OFFENSE (League Rank):
NEXT 4 GAME OUTLOOK: MIX
The forecast for their next 4 games is a mixed bag. They have 2 likely wins where they are winning >62% of the simulations which translates to being at least a -5 point favorite, and just 1 game where they are a clear underdog. They have a 6.4 percent chance of winning four over this stretch.
