The 2001 Baltimore Ravens season was the franchise's 6th season in the National Football League (NFL) and the third under head coach Brian Billick.

Fresh off their victory trip from Super Bowl XXXV, bad news struck the 2001 Ravens as running back Jamal Lewis suffered a knee injury in training camp and would miss the entire season. This weakened the Ravens' running game and defense, and they also failed to improve their 12-4 record from 2000, instead they went 10–6 record that season, but eventually made the postseason for the second straight time in franchise history.

They easily shutdown the Miami Dolphins, 20–3 in the Wild Card Round, but were unable to stop the 13–3 Pittsburgh Steelers, in the next round, due to a series of turnovers and penalties.
