9-7, 2nd in AFC North
Ravens continue WR additions by adding Snead (0:56)

Jamison Hensley ESPN Staff Writer 

Where Willie Snead will make his biggest impact for the Ravens is extending drives. From 2015 to 2016, Snead ranked fifth among wide receivers with 50 catches on third downs. Only Antonio Brown, DeAndre Hopkins, Odell Beckham Jr. and Demaryius Thomas produced more. Since winning the Super Bowl, the Ravens have been the seventh-worst offense on third downs, converting 37.1 percent of the time.

Source: Snead a Raven as Saints won't match

The New Orleans Saints have declined to match the Baltimore Ravens' two-year, $7 million offer to restricted free-agent wide receiver Willie Snead.

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome wanted to change the look of Baltimore's wide receiver group and he certainly has done that this offseason. In: Michael Crabtree, John Brown and Willie Snead. Out: Mike Wallace, Jeremy Maclin and Michael Campanaro.

Ravens officially add wide receiver Willie Snead after the Saints decline to match Baltimore's two year, $7 million offer sheet, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Baltimore has been looking for a slot receiver to pair with free agent additions Michael Crabtree and John Brown. This move doesn't preclude the Ravens from drafting a wide receiver early in the draft.

Ravens opened as 3.5-point favorites over the Bills in the 2018 season opener, according to the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook. Baltimore is 5-1 in season openers at M&T Bank Stadium under coach John Harbaugh.

If the Ravens can add wide receiver Willie Snead (and it seems unlikely that the Saints will match the offer sheet), this would essentially end Baltimore's interest in Dez Bryant. While Snead doesn't bring the same big name or buzz as Bryant, he does fill the Ravens' need for a slot receiver better than Bryant.

Another way the league evened out the schedule pain is back-to-back-to-back road games (3 consecutive). In 2017 there were 12. This season there are 6. (This includes neutral site venues as road games.) Of the 6 three-game road sequences, two teams own 2 of them if you consider neutral site (London/Mexico City) games as road games: Rams and Chargers. The Ravens and Saints own the other two. The Rams second 3-game road sequence includes their Mexico City game, but it's interrupted by their bye. The Chargers actually have an *uninterrupted 4-game road sequence*, counting their London game, which (strictly speaking) includes two 3-game road sequences.
