GREG ROMAN was named Baltimore's offensive coordinator in January 2019. Roman, a 22-year NFL coaching veteran, is in his second stint with the Ravens after re-joining the team in 2017. Since his return, Roman has made an impact on the offense and looks to build on recent success, including the NFL's No. 2-ranked rushing attack (152.6 ypg) from 2018. Due in large part to a pair of rookies (QB Lamar Jackson and RB Gus Edwards), the team racked up the second-most rushing yards (2,441) in franchise history in 2018, while also producing a franchise-best 5,999 total yards. Baltimore also finished as the top team in time of possession, holding the ball for an average of 32:17 per game. Over the final seven games of 2018 (with Jackson starting at QB), Baltimore piled up an NFL high 1,607 rushing yards (229.6 ypg), with Seattle (1,190) rushing for the next-highest total. Also during that seven-game span, Edwards posted the NFL's third-most rushing yards (654, tied, Chris Carson), while Jackson's 556 ranked seventh.
