If you think the Ravens have been trending up leading to their superbowl win, then I think you and I have different definitions of trending up.
Ravens have been stagnant. As a matter of fact, with the age of that roster and the injuries they had I might even say they've been trending down.
But that means nothing because last year when it mattered most, they played good football. Trending in the NFL means very little.
