After trashing Los Angeles Rams on Monday, Baltimore Ravens are considered to be a legitimate Super Bowl contender this season. The confidence is high in the Ravens’ locker room as well, with safety Earl Thomas having no doubt his team will go all the way.

Thomas had a chat with reporters ahead of Ravens’ matchup with San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, when he was asked whether this game perhaps offers a preview of Super Bowl LIV.

“You think the 49ers are going to the Super Bowl? It could be, let’s see,” – said Thomas. “We’ll just go out there and try to play the best football we can possibly do. And when the Super Bowl comes, whoever we play, they’re going to be in trouble.”

While some might say that Thomas is a bit too confident, the fact is that Baltimore Ravens look like the best team in football at the moment. The Ravens are currently on a seven-game winning streak and have the league’s largest point margin of plus-184. They also lead the NFL in rushing offense and are second in total offense.

Baltimore is currently favored to win Super Bowl according to ESPN’s Football Power Index, having a 26.2 percent chance to take it all. New England Patriots are second with 25.7 percent.
