Over the course of nearly two decades, the Baltimore Ravens have established themselves as one of the most dominant defensive forces in the National Football League. In business since 1996, the Ravens have been perennial contenders for a playoff position courtesy of a focused and disciplined approach on defense that stymies the opposition each weekend. The Ravens play all their home games at M&T Bank in downtown Baltimore which is capable of seating 71,008 screeching Ravens ticket holders.
The history of Ravens football actually began in Cleveland, Ohio in 1946. The franchise originated as the first Cleveland Browns football team. Art Modell, who took over ownership of the Browns in 1961, moved the franchise to Baltimore after the 1995 season and returned football to a city which had lost its beloved Baltimore Colts in the 1980s. Despite moving the franchise from Cleveland, the recognized date of origin for the Ravens franchise is 1996. All intellectual property of the Cleveland Browns was left with the city for use with a future expansion team.
From the moment the Ravens arrived in Baltimore, the team began to build a legacy of stingy defense and just enough offense to win. Ravens tickets became a hot commodity in 2000 when head coach Brian Billick led a team loaded with defensive stars like Ray Lewis and Ed Reed to a Super Bowl victory over the New York Giants.
In the years since that first Super Bowl victory, the Ravens have been annual participants in the NFL postseason. Since the 2000 season, Baltimore has reached the NFL playoffs in eight of 13 seasons including a run of five consecutive appearances from 2008 to 2012. The franchise concluded the 2012 season with a victory at Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans.
Today, the Ravens have crafted a slightly different identity then the one the franchise banked on throughout much of its early history. While defense is still plays a pivotal role, anchored by Terrell Suggs, Elvis Dumervil, and others; the offense has grown with Joe Flacco, Ray Rice, Jacoby Jones, and Torrey Smith all providing offensive firepower.
As members of the AFC North, the franchise has developed a number of heated rivalries that make Baltimore Ravens tickets a must have for fans in the region. Each year the Ravens collide with an equally powerful defensive force in the Pittsburgh Steelers, and it is always intense when the Ravens face the modern iteration of the Cleveland Browns.
