The Baltimore Ravens entered the 2022-23 NFL season with many question marks surrounding the franchise.
Between quarterback Lamar Jackson’s contract dispute with the organization and the perceived strength of the AFC North, many doubted the Ravens were built for success.
But five games into the year – Baltimore is looking pretty good. Not only is the team 3-2, but it sits comfortably atop the division.
And it’s not just the Ravens players who thrive. The team’s cheerleaders also make noise.
Last week, a series of photos with the cheerleading unit went mega-viral on social media:
“Best entrance in sports,” one fan wrote.
“Primetime at the bank is the best experience I’ve ever had,” added another.
“Stadium jumped out of the gym,” wrote a third.
While the Ravens cheerleaders haven’t achieved the level of notoriety that a Miami Dolphins dancer has this season, what they’ve been able to do is still very impressive.
Cheerleading as a whole has seen a real resurgence in the past year. Between Alabama’s unit causing a stir at the collegiate level and now the Ravens doing the same in the NFL – it’s been one thing after another.
Big picture, it will be interesting to see how Baltimore fares going forward.
With matchups against the Cleveland Browns, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New Orleans Saints and Carolina Panthers on the agenda – the Ravens can easily go 3-1 over the next four.
That would put them at 6-3 and position them pretty well against their division foes.

And if the squad continues to do well, the cheerleaders will inevitably continue to shine. A win-win all round.
Could this be the year the Ravens shock the world and compete for a Super Bowl?
