2014 Baltimore Ravens seasonThe 2014 Baltimore Ravens season was the franchise's 19th season in the National Football League and the seventh under head coach John Harbaugh. The Ravens improved upon their 8-8 record from 2013, when they missed the playoffs for the first time since 2007. Additionally, the Ravens scored a franchise record 409 points and quarterback Joe Flacco passed for a career-high 27 touchdowns and 3,986 yards.
The Ravens clinched the sixth seed in the AFC playoffs following their Week 17 win against the Browns. After winning the AFC Wild Card Game against their divisional rival Pittsburgh Steelers, the Ravens were ultimately defeated in the AFC Divisional Round by the eventual Super Bowl champion New England Patriots, and had failed to upset them on the road for the first time since the Ravens' 2012 Super Bowl winning-season. Until 2018, this was the last time the Ravens made the playoffs, and was their first time doing so in the post-Ray Lewis era.
