The 2016 season was the Baltimore Ravens' 21st season in the National Football League and the ninth under head coach John Harbaugh. With a week 12 win over the Cincinnati Bengals, the Ravens improved upon their 5-11 record from 2015, finishing the season 8-8. Despite the improvement, the Ravens failed to qualify for the playoffs for the second consecutive year after losing to the Steelers in Week 16. It was the first time the Ravens missed the playoffs in consecutive seasons since 2004-2005, and their first consecutive non-winning seasons since 1996-1999. They did, however, improve their position in the division, finishing in second place after finishing in third place for the previous three seasons.

Game summaries

Regular season

Week 1: Baltimore Ravens 13, Buffalo Bills 7

The Ravens started the season with the return of their injured starters from last season. While the offense played a fairly average game, the defense was dominant, holding former teammate Tyrod Taylor and the Bills offense to only 160 total yards. The team looked overall much better than last season, with no major injuries and few penalties (6 for 35 yards).

Week 2: Baltimore Ravens 25, Cleveland Browns 20

The Ravens traveled to their division rival Cleveland Browns for their road opener. After Browns' starting quarterback Robert Griffin III was injured in week 1, the Ravens faced Josh McCown who passed for 457 yards against them last season. After a dismal start in which the defense allowed 20 points in the first quarter, they bounced back with a blocked extra point for a safety, after which Joe Flacco and the offense finally returned with full strength, with two touchdown passes to Mike Wallace and three Justin Tucker field goals, shutting out the Browns 25-0 in the final three quarters.

Week 3: Baltimore Ravens 19, Jacksonville Jaguars 17

With the win, the Ravens improved to 3-0 and sat on top of the division with the Steelers' loss to the Eagles.

Week 4: Oakland Raiders 28, Baltimore Ravens 27

The Ravens stayed at home for a matchup against the Raiders who never won at Baltimore. Unfortunately the Ravens could not hold on to the lead after Derek Carr found Michael Crabtree in the end zone near the end of the game. Baltimore began driving down the field but the drive stalled allowing the Raiders to win at Baltimore for the first time in history dropping the Ravens 3-1. With the Steelers win, the Ravens dropped to second place in the AFC North

Week 5: Washington Redskins 16, Baltimore Ravens 10

After a dismal loss to the Redskins in which Joe Flacco and the offense were completely shut out in the second half, the Ravens Fired Offensive Coordinator Marc Trestman.

Week 6: New York Giants 27, Baltimore Ravens 23

Trying to halt a two-game losing streak, the Ravens traveled to MetLife for one of their two straight games there.

The Ravens defense allowed Beckham two 60+ yard touchdowns, helping the Giants win.

Week 7: New York Jets 24, Baltimore Ravens 16

The Ravens had a chance to tie the game but were stopped allowing the Jets to win.

Week 9: Baltimore Ravens 21, Pittsburgh Steelers 14
