The Baltimore Ravens tasted Super Bowl glory in 2000 – the only year the franchise in its current form won the big game.

The Ravens haven’t been around very long, they moved from Cleveland in 1995. However, Baltimore is enjoying its success with a core group of young stars and leadership of its tantalizing veterans.

Here’s a look at Baltimore Ravens on cards as they head to the Super Bowl.

Joe Flacco

The Ravens quarterback faced questions early this season as some wondered if Baltimore could win it all with him. The Ravens closed out the regular season with a 1-4 record. But during the playoffs, Flacco has been great.

He completed 3,817 yards had 22 touchdowns and 10 interceptions during the regular season. In the playoffs, he has thrown eight interceptions and no picks.
