Ravens #1 in ESPN, SI Power Rankings

The Baltimore Ravens have been named the #1 team in ESPN's and SI's power rankings after the first two weeks of the season. The Ravens are one of nine teams that are currently 2-0 on the season, and thanks to their surprising offense and dependable defense, they land as the #1 team on the list.

The win over the Chargers in San Diego gave the Ravens a huge lift in respect despite that it was close. The fact is whenever you win on the road on the opposite side of the country against a potential playoff team, it is a huge win. Obviously both of the Ravens wins were closer then they would have liked, but the fact is they are 2-0.

Normally, the Ravens would not do well with expectations, but under John Harbaugh, the team always seems ready for games, no matter what. The Ravens host the Browns at home this weekend, and if the Ravens play their game, then they should be 3-0.
