2014 Schedule Will Be Favorable For Baltimore Ravens
For the first time since the 2007 season, the Baltimore Ravens will be watching the start of the NFL playoffs on the couch. One silver lining you could look at is that it will provide a slightly easier schedule next year. Here are the teams that the Ravens will be playing next year.
Home: Cincinnati Bengals, Pittsburgh Steelers, Cleveland Browns, San Diego Chargers, Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans, Carolina Panthers, Atlanta Falcons
Away: Cincinnati Bengals, Pittsburgh Steelers, Cleveland Browns, Miami Dolphins, Indianapolis Colts, Houston Texans, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Ravens will have six games against 2013 playoff teams and 10 games against non-playoff teams. Only one game is against one of the four teams that had a first round bye (Panthers at home). Another thing that sticks out right away is a really light travel schedule. The Ravens will never once have to travel outside of the Central Standard Time zone.
What could wind up being the most favorable thing in my opinion is not having to play the Denver Broncos or New England Patriots. The Ravens have had to play both teams the past two years in the regular season. In the wacky world of the NFL, it’s common for there to be parity in the league, but typically not with any team with Peyton Manning and Tom Brady at QB. I think the Ravens will gladly take their chances with the Dolphins and Chargers instead.
There’s still a long time before the kickoff of the 2014 season. With the proven track record of the Ravens, I expect nothing less then a bounce-back year. In Ozzie Newsome we trust.
