The Baltimore Ravens are officially a quasi-expansion franchise, having originated in 1996 with the Cleveland Browns relocation controversy after Art Modell, then owner of the Cleveland Browns, announced his intention to relocate the team to Baltimore. Modell's team was named the "Baltimore Ravens" after a fan contest and began play in the 1996 season. The name was inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's poem The Raven, as Poe once lived in Baltimore. The Ravens triumphed over the New York Giants in Super Bowl XXXV led by MVP Ray Lewis. They also won Super Bowl XLVII over the San Francisco 49ers.
