Ravens Never One-And-Done In Playoffs Under John Harbaugh

Posted Jan 1, 2013

The Ravens have won a playoff game each year under Head Coach John Harbaugh.


In John Harbaugh’s five years in Baltimore, the Ravens have been to the playoffs every season, the only NFL team to do so.
 
They have also won at least a playoff game in each of those seasons, never going one-and-done in the postseason under Harbaugh.
 
Harbaugh and the Ravens hope to continue that trend in Sunday’s wild-card game with the Colts, and they plan to stick with the approach they have taken during each week of the regular season.  
 
“We will stick to our process,” Harbaugh said. “We will try to do it the best we have done it all year. We’ve had 16 chances to practice it, to go through this process, [and] we should be at our very best this time of year. And we need to be.”
 
One area where the Ravens (10-6) have a clear advantage over the Colts (11-5) is in playoff experience.

 
The Colts have a young roster led by rookie quarterback Andrew Luck, while the Ravens have fifth-year quarterback Joe Flacco who has led the Ravens to their five straight playoff appearances. The majority of the Ravens’ roster has played in the postseason, including 18 of the 22 starters.
 
“We’ve got a number of guys that have been here before,” Harbaugh said. “I think the shared experiences that we’ve had and then what we can impart upon the guys that haven’t been a part of all that – the triumphs and the disappointments – all factor in to who you are and what you bring to the table. I’m hoping that we’ll be able to bring all that to bear on Sunday.”
 
In their recent playoff experiences, the Ravens have won both at home and on the road.
 
Last year they beat the Houston Texans, 20-13, in the divisional round at M&T Bank Stadium, which was the first home playoff game under Harbaugh.
 
The Ravens went to Kansas City and beat the Chiefs, 30-7, in 2010 and beat New England, 33-14, in Foxboro in 2009. The Ravens made a run to the AFC championship with two straight road wins (over Miami and Tennessee) in Harbaugh’s inaugural 2008 season.
 
As they prepare for their 10th playoff game since 2008, Harbaugh likes what he sees in his team.
 
“I feel great about where we are at,” he said. “I’m very excited about our team right now. I like us a lot. I’ve liked us all year. 
 
“I like the fact that we’ve overcome a lot of adversity – both personal and team. I like the fact that our guys have stuck together through a lot of that. I think that’s what makes a team what it is. I’m looking forward to seeing who we are for the next one game through however many games we are able to play. It’s going to be a big challenge. It’s a great opportunity, and I wouldn’t want to be coaching any other team besides the Ravens at this stage.”
