BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Ravens have discovered a downside to winning the Super Bowl: they’re locked in a scheduling fight with the Orioles.

The defending Super Bowl champion usually gets to kick off the whole NFL season at home on Thursday night.

This year, the Orioles are scheduled to play at Camden Yards that same night, Sept. 5.

NFL Commissioner Roger Gooddell says the Ravens are working to find a solution.

He says he has twice spoken with MLB Commissioner Bud Selig about switching the baseball game to the afternoon, with the Ravens’ opener beginning later than usual in the evening. Moving the NFL game to Wednesday night is not an alternative, Goodell says, because it is the first night of Rosh Hashanah.

If no solution is reached, the Ravens could open on the road, but “I don’t think that’s fair for the Ravens’ fans,” Goodell said.
