Rob Long: The Baltimore Ravens Schedule
The National Football League has managed to make a huge production out of releasing their schedule. That’s why the NFL are who they are. Fans all over the country have been anticipating this for weeks.
Now, that the schedule has been released, fans of the Baltimore Ravens are scratching their heads wondering who’s against them. By all accounts, the 2012-13 season is going to be BRUTAL.
The Ravens fell one game shy of the NFL’s maximum five prime time games. They start the season with an AFC North opponent, the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals are expected to be competitive again this year. Some experts believe the Bengals could challenge the Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers for divisional supremacy.
The other prime time games for the Ravens include the New England Patriots, Cleveland Browns and Steelers. If things play out the way you expect, and they never do in the NFL, this could be a very challenging season.
