The Ravens have been one of the most surprising teams in the NFL this year, but their standing atop the AFC is no small feat.
They’ll need to keep their foot on the gas if they want to stay above the juggernauts below them in the standings, including the Chiefs and Miami Dolphins.
Regardless of what happens in the coming weeks, for now, the Ravens are the top seed in the AFC.
Upon seeing this, fans reacted accordingly, with many Ravens fans expressing their excitement.
Lamar winning it all this season.

Most of the responses to this tweet were from Ravens fans.
These fans are elated to see what this team has done thus far and are anticipating what is yet to come for this team.
The Ravens have one of the NFL’s best defenses coupled with Lamar Jackson playing elite football.
Many believe that Jackson has played himself into the MVP race again this year, which has fans even more excited.
One of the negatives surrounding the Ravens coming into the year was based on Jackson, as some believed he couldn’t improve as a passer.
He has continued to prove his doubters wrong, which has resulted in the Ravens’ spot atop the AFC.NEXT: Ravens HC Reveals Surprising Update On Mark Andrews Injury
