The Baltimore Ravens joined the NFL in less than conventional circumstances in 1996. Art Modell, who at the time was the owner of the Cleveland Browns, announced plans to relocate the franchise to Baltimore in 1995. A legal battle between Modell and the city of Cleveland followed and a settlement was reached. The settlement allowed Modell to take his own personnel and team to Baltimore, but the Browns’ history and records remained in Cleveland. The Baltimore Ravens would officially be recognized as an expansion team entering the 1996 regular season.
Despite the relocation, the Ravens didn’t take long to find success in their new city. Just five seasons after their move, Baltimore won its first Super Bowl (XXXV) in dominating fashion, downing the New York Giants 34-7. The Ravens would make it back to the Super Bowl (XLVII) in the 2012-13 season, this time taking on the San Francisco 49ers in what would become one of the most bizarre Super Bowls on record. The Ravens currently remain the only team in the NFL with a perfect record in multiple Super Bowl appearances.
Baltimore has made the playoffs 13 times in their abbreviated history, posting 16 playoff victories prior to the start of the 2021-22 season. Baltimore has appeared in the AFC Championship game four times (2001, 2009, 2012 and 2013) and have laid claim to six AFC North division titles (2003, 2006, 2011, 2012, 2018 and 2019).
