The Baltimore Ravens lost in the Wild Card round of the AFC playoffs to the Cincinnati Bengals 24-17. If it weren’t for the quarterback sneak by Baltimore’s Tyler Huntley that resulted in a 98-yard fumble recovery early in the fourth quarter, the outcome might’ve been different. The Ravens’ defense played lights out for the most part, and held quarterback Joe Burrow and the Bengals’ offense in check.
Baltimore inside linebacker Patrick Queen was asked after the game what he will take away from this season and he was direct with his answer, saying he’ll remember the progress that the team made, saying they’ll have “a pretty good shot at it” next year.
“Just the progress that we’ve made, and the chemistry that we all have. I know a lot of us will be back. We’ll have a pretty good shot at it again next year. It’s not like we’re doing a whole rebuild or anything. We just have to come back and put the work in the offseason, don’t dwell on this too much, let it motivate us, and then come out there next season.”
A lot will be going on this offseason for the Ravens, but the defense has the most of the players in place to take another big step to be even more dominant in 2023. The moves that happen now that the season is over will be interesting to see, and this will be one of the most crucial off-seasons in team history.
