The Baltimore Ravens just gained a powerful ally.
Pope Francis jumped onto the Ravens bandwagon Tuesday morning when the Baltimore Archdiocese presented him with a custom Ravens jersey signed by Lamar Jackson and John Harbaugh.

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.
Today we give thanks to the Lord for our new #Saints. They walked by faith and now we invoke their intercession.

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.
