Ravens One Of NFL's Best With Challenges

Posted Mar 23, 2014

As the NFL considers changing replay rules, take a look at how Harbaugh has done in the current format.


The annual NFL Owner’s Meeting begins this week in Orlando, and officials from the league’s 32 clubs will discuss a number of proposed rules changes.

One of the items on the docket is the possibility of allowing head coaches to challenge any official’s decision, except scoring plays. If the proposal passes and more plays are then subject to review, then the Ravens could stand to benefit because they have been one of the NFL’s most successful teams at challenging calls during Head Coach John Harbaugh’s tenure.

Harbaugh has challenged a league-high 57 plays during his six seasons in Baltimore, and had an NFL-best 28 of those plays reversed. Last season, he also had the most challenges in the NFL (12), and seven of those plays were overturned in the Ravens’ favor. The Ravens won 58 percent of their challenges last year, which ranked 14th in the NFL.

Here’s an overview of how the Ravens have performed with their challenges over the last six seasons:
