The 2021 Ravens ended the season in the only possible manner--another excruciating loss. This time it was a 16-13 overtime quasi-thriller in the muck against the hated Steelers, who somehow slipped into the postseason as a result. Baltimore's 'what might have been' season comes to a merciful end with its sixth-straight defeat, all of them (save one rout by the Bengals) eyelash-close. Baltimore fell some 20 percentage points in DVOA from last year's strong showing. A tidal wave of injuries certainly was part of that, but it will be an interesting offseason in Baltimore as the Ravens assess the wreckage of a last-place finish and decide how best to approach a comeback campaign in 2022.
