The Baltimore Ravens are coming off a truly remarkable 2019 season. They may not have managed to win a playoff game, but they were undoubtedly one of the best teams in the NFL. They out-scored their opponents by a league-leading average of 15.6 points per game, finishing 14-2. That was led by one of the most effective rushing attacks in NFL history, rushing for a record-setting 3,296 yards.

Now, CBS Sports predicts the Ravens' offense is set for even bigger things in 2020.

As a bold prediction for the 2020 NFL season, they are projecting the Ravens to break their own single-season rushing record. The last record stood for 41 years (after being set in 1978 by the New England Patriots), but CBS Sports projects this one to fall much more quickly.

The Ravens still have most of the pieces in place that carried them to the rushing record in 2020. The offensive line is mostly intact, though they did lose Marshal Yanda to retirement this offseason. But every player that recorded a single rushing yard for the Ravens in 2019 is still under contract for the upcoming season.

Making things even better, they've also added college standout J.K. Dobbins, who ran for 2,003 yards at Ohio State in 2019.

It's always going to be tough to break an NFL record, but this unit certainly looks well-equipped to outdo themselves.
