It's unsurprising to see with the way Baltimore has become the top team in the AFC. After taking down the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, Baltimore has cemented itself as the new Super Bowl favorite.

The pope already gave his blessing to the NFC-leading New Orleans Saints this season, setting up what could in all likelihood be the Super Bowl LIV matchup.

The Ravens are riding an eight-game winning streak without any kind of previous blessing, but having the pope on their side certainly won't hurt.
