The Baltimore Ravens are a professional American football team based in Baltimore, Maryland. Established in 1996, the Ravens play as a part of the American Football Conference (AFC) North division in the National Football League (NFL).

The Ravens were established after Art Modell, then owner of the Cleveland Browns, wanted to relocate the team to Baltimore. The relocation agreement stipulated that the Browns’ history and records would remain in Cleveland itself which led to the birth of the Ravens as a new franchise in the league.

The team’s name, Ravens, was inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s poem, The Raven. As a matter of fact, before the football team, there was a wheelchair basketball team under the same name in the city. The wheelchair basketball team was founded by Ralph Smith in 1972.

The team plays their home game at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. It has been their home stadium since the 1998 season. Before that, the Ravens played their home games at Memorial Stadium for two seasons since their inception in 1996.

Championship Wins

The Baltimore Ravens are one of the last teams to join the National Football League (NFL). In nearly three decades in the NFL, the Ravens have won the Super Bowl twice.

They won their first Championship at the Super Bowl XXXV in the 2000 season. They defeated the New York Giants with a score of 34-7 claiming their first Super Bowl, just four years after their entrance in the league.

Twelve years later, the Ravens won their second Super Bowl championship after the 2012 regular season. They defeated the San Francisco 49ers by 34-31 in the Super Bowl XLVII played at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana on February 3, 2013.
