ESPN released their Preseason Power Rankings on Thursday and the Baltimore Ravens rank 9th on the list. Baltimore is behind Green Bay, New England, Philadelphia, New Orleans, Pittsburgh, Atlanta, the New York Jets and Indianapolis.

ESPN’s AFC North blogger James Walker said that the Ravens will go as far as Joe Flacco will take the take in his fourth year. After a slow, and somewhat disappointing off season, I couldn’t agree more.

Around the AFC North, the Cleveland Browns are ranked 28th and the Cincinnati Bengals find themselves in last at 32.
