The Baltimore Ravens are a professional American football franchise based in Baltimore, Maryland. They are a member of the American Football Conference's North Division in the National Football League (NFL). The team's name is a reference to the poem "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe, who lived and worked in Baltimore at various points during his life and is buried in the city. Its triumph over the New York Giants in Super Bowl XXXV at the conclusion of the 2000 season remains its best season. The Ravens are currently one of only four teams to win in their lone Super Bowl appearance. - Source: Wikipedia
