It’s been an amazing year for Baltimore’s offense in 2009. The emergence of Ray Rice and Joe Flacco have brought this offense to places Ravens’ fans have never seen before and with a solid win Sunday, the Ravens could break a lot of their franchise records.
In 2008 the Ravens’ three-headed monster rushed for 20 TD’s. This year with mainly Rice and Willis McGahee carrying the load the Ravens have rushed for 19 TD’s. So if the pair can get in the endzone twice Sunday, another franchise record will be broken.
Another record will be replaced if the Ravens can put up 14 points Sunday. They sit one TD behind of their 1996 total of 44.
With 434 total net yards Sunday, the Ravens can surpass their 1996 franchise-best marks. If they have a really good day on third downs they can also surpass their 1996 third-down percentage of 43.8.
Also, 22 points against Oakland will give the Ravens the most in franchise history, breaking their 2003 total of 391.
Joe Flacco is having one of the best years a Ravens’ QB has ever had. His 89.5 passer rating and 63.3 completion percentage are the best in Ravens history, his 304 completions and 7.31 yards per attempt come in at second all time. With 22 completions Sunday, Flacco will pass Vinny Testaverde and be top in that category in franchise history.
Ray Rice’s 5.3 yards per attempt tie him for first in Ravens history and his 1,952 yards from scrimmage rank him second. In both categories, Jamal Lewis is the man infront of Rice.
