Ravens Should Beg to Lose to the 'Skins Each Year

If you live anywhere in Maryland (like I do) or in a surrounding state or district, then you'll probably be reminded on a daily basis about the recent Ravens Super Bowl victory over the 49ers. The Raven fans have come out of the woodwork or jumped on the bandwagon wearing their gear and talking about their team.... and that's fine.

That's what I would do if the Redskins won the Super Bowl (I do it anyway no matter how good or bad the Redskins are playing).

But if a Raven fan decides to crow a little too much about their year or wants to talk some smack about the Redskins all you have to do is remind them that the 'Skins beat the champs with the help of a back up rookie QB.

Matter of fact, the Redskins beat the Ravens in the regular season both times the Ravens won the Super Bowl.

The first came on 10/15/2000 when Stephen Davis stiff armed his way past Rod Woodson for the lone TD of the game. The Redskins won 10-3. The Ravens would later go on to beat the Giants for their first Lombardi.

The second win for the Redskins came this past December with a 31-28 overtime victory.
The Ravens have only faced the Redskins 5 times in the Ravens short history. Currently they lead the series 3-2.

Coincidence or some sort of weird trend? I'll let you decide.

But if it is some sort of trend, the Ravens won't be heading to another Super Bowl for another four years and that's only if they lose to the Redskins.
Hopefully, Washington will get there before the Redskins face the Ravens for their next match up.
