With three straight playoff appearances since the arrival of head coach John Harbaugh in 2008, the Baltimore Ravens are one of the most stable franchises in the NFL. Baltimore Ravens tickets deliver plenty of excitement for a fan base that has embraced pro football in a unique fashion for more than 50 years. Baltimore Ravens Tickets: Franchise Overview The city of Baltimore had some strong ties with its first NFL team. From 1953-83, the Baltimore Colts were one of the glamour franchises in the league. With Hall of Fame quarterback Johnny Unitas leading the way, the Colts won consecutive NFL titles in 1958-59 and a Super Bowl in 1970. However, the Colts winning tradition began to crumble by the late seventies. After suffering through six straight losing years in a worn-down stadium, the Colts franchise moved to Indianapolis in 1984. The move was a cruel blow to the residents of Baltimore. After going over a decade without an NFL team, Baltimore returned to the NFL landscape in 1996. The Cleveland Browns left its town for some of the same reasons that the Colts departed Baltimore. The Browns became the Baltimore Ravens in its new locale. Baltimore's Super Bowl Season After failing to produce a winning season to close out the nineties, everything came together for the Baltimore Ravens in the 2000 campaign. With one of the top defensive efforts in the history of the NFL, Baltimore captured the AFC title and a spot in Super Bowl XXXV. In a dominant performance against the New York Giants, the Ravens cruised to a 34-7 victory to bring Baltimore its first NFL title in 30 years. Linebacker Ray Lewis led a defensive unit that was feared by opposing offenses. While the Ravens failed to reach another Super Bowl during the decade, the franchise advanced to the playoffs five more times over the next nine years. Baltimore Ravens Tickets at M & T Bank Stadium Since 1998, the Ravens have played at M & T Bank Stadium (capacity of 71,008). In a modern stadium with a winning team to support, Baltimore Ravens tickets are coveted in a town that loves its pro football. Baltimore Raven's Top Birds With Lewis still going strong, the Ravens have some other stars on its roster heading. Quarterback Joe Flacco, running back Ray Rice and defensive back Ed Reed are also impact performers for Baltimore.
