Named in honor of the Edgar Allan Poe poem, the Baltimore Ravens Limited Partnership owns and operates Baltimore's
National Football League
franchise, which won its first Super Bowl following the 2000 season and its second championship after the 2012 campaign. The team was created in 1996 when former
owner Art Modell relocated his franchise to Maryland. As part of the deal, Modell agreed to give up all rights to the Browns' name, colors, and history. The team plays host at M&T Bank Stadium. Stephen Bisciotti, a local businessman who founded staffing firm
, acquired control of the team from Modell in 2004.
