The Baltimore Ravens' season began with a half-hour delay in Denver because of lightening. The Ravens then faced torrential rain and 40 mile-per hour gusts last month in Chicago, where there was a tornado watch in the area.
Maybe that's why no one should have been surprised Sunday when the Ravens played for the first time in the snow in their 18-year existence.
“Is there other weather we haven’t seen yet?," coach John Harbaugh said after the Ravens' 29-26 win over the Minnesota Vikings. "I don’t even want to say that because something is going to happen."
If there was a team that earned a game in a dome, it's the Ravens. Baltimore plays its first game indoors Monday night, when they play the Detroit Lions at Ford Field.
But the cold weather has worked to the Ravens' advantage. In their history, the Ravens are 15-2 in home games when the temperature at kickoff is below 40 degrees.
"We’re ready to play any type of game," tight end Ed Dickson said. "What else can they throw at us? I mean, the Super Bowl is in New York this year.”
