GREG ROMAN is in his third season as the Ravens' offensive coordinator. Under Roman's leadership, Baltimore's rushing attack has been superb. In 2020, the Ravens' run game finished No. 1 in the NFL (191.9 ypg) for the second-straight season and produced the third-most yards (3,071) in a 16-game NFL season. (The Ravens own two of the Top 3 marks, setting the single-season rushing record in 2019 with 3,296.) Entering 2021, Baltimore has rushed for 100+ yards in 39-straight games, posting the second-longest streak in pro football history. Since 2018, the Ravens have averaged the most rushing yards per game (183.5) and scored the most ground TDs (64) in the NFL. In 2020, Baltimore also registered an NFL-best six games with at least 200 rushing yards, including a franchise record 404-yard output in Week 17's victory at Cincinnati. The Ravens' 24 rushing TDs in 2020 set a new single-season franchise record. In his first season at the helm (2019), Roman led Baltimore's attack to record-setting heights, ultimately earning him NFL Assistant Coach of the Year honors. The "revolutionary" Ravens posted the best offensive season in team history, helping Baltimore to a franchise-best 14-2 record. Led by 2019 unanimous NFL MVP QB Lamar Jackson, the Ravens ranked No. 1 in points (33.2) and rushing yards (206.0) per game, while they finished No. 2 in total yards (407.6). The Ravens set a new NFL single-season rushing record (3,296), besting the 1978 Patriots (3,165). Baltimore became the first team ever to average 200 passing and 200 rushing yards per game in a season. The 2019 Ravens also set season team records for TDs (64), points (531), net yards (6,521), rushing yards (3,296), first downs (386) and fewest turnovers (15). Jackson accounted for a league-high 43 total TDs, including an NFL-best (and franchise-record) 36 passing scores. Jackson also rushed for 1,206 yards (sixth most in the league), setting a new NFL single-season record by a QB. TE Mark Andrews had 10 receiving TDs, ranking No. 1 among all NFL tight ends and tying (WR Cooper Kupp) for second by all players. RB Mark Ingram II posted 15 total TDs, tying a single-season team record (Ray Rice, 2011) and ranking fourth overall in the NFL. In 2018, Roman coached a young group of tight ends, all of whom played a role in the team's offense. Rookie Andrews (third-round draft pick) ranked No. 1 among rookie NFL tight ends in receiving yards (552) and No. 3 in receptions (34). In Roman's first season (2017) back with the team, the offense made significant strides, particularly in the latter part of the year. Following that season, Roman was promoted to assistant head coach/tight ends coach. Since his first term in Baltimore (2006-07), Roman became a successful NFL offensive coordinator both in San Francisco (2011-14) and Buffalo (2015-16). With each team, Roman worked with NFL QBs who, at the time, totaled their highest single-season passer ratings under his guidance: SF's Alex Smith (104.1 in 2012) and Colin Kaepernick (98.3 in 2012) and Buffalo's Tyrod Taylor (99.4 in 2015). (Smith eclipsed his own mark while with KC in 2017 - 104.7.)
