Question Marks:

  • Super Bowl Hangover/Roster defections - The Ravens are the defending Super Bowl champions, and could face the dreaded Super Bowl hangover this season. Add in the massive roster turnover they will have, including the retirement of Ray Lewis, and the 2013 Ravens are a very different team from the 2012 version.
  • Wide receiver - Anquan Boldin was traded to the San Francisco 49ers. Some combination of Jacoby Jones, Deonte Thompson, and Tandon Doss will be expected to replace Boldin opposite Torrey Smith.
  • Joe Flacco - After leading the Ravens to the Super Bowl, Flacco was paid a enormous contract. Will he play to a level to justify that deal?
