As the Ravens’ 2016 season comes to an end this weekend, Baltimore Sun photographers Kenneth K. Lam, Lloyd Fox and Karl Merton Ferron look back through the images they captured. From the thousands of photos taken at games this year, about 360 appeared in the print edition of The Baltimore Sun. Here are some gems that didn’t make the first cut.

Fanatic fans, marching bands, cheerleaders and lots of game action are just part of the spectacle that is the NFL. This week photojournalist Kenneth K. Lam covered the Baltimore Ravens loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-27 at Heinz Field. The Ravens will not make the playoffs.
