At long last, the NFL 2014 regular-season schedule will be released at 8 p.m. Wednesday, according to the league.
The full schedule will be revealed on NFL Network and on the league's website. To this point, the Ravens only know their opponents, not the dates and times of their games.
The Ravens will play the Pittsburgh Steelers, Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns, Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans, San Diego Chargers, Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons at M&T Bank Stadium this season.
On the road, they'll face the three other AFC North teams along with the Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Buccaneers and Miami Dolphins.
Five of their opponents - the Bengals, Chargers, Panthers, Colts and Saints - made the playoffs last season. The Ravens, meanwhile, finished last season with an 8-8 record, breaking their five-season streak of making the postseason.
As for the preseason, the Ravens will open up on Aug. 7 against the San Francisco 49ers. The Ravens will play at Dallas the second week of the preseason before returning to M&T Bank Stadium for their third preseason game against the Washington Redskins. They'll then close the preseason on April 28 against the Saints at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, their first trip back to New Orleans since they won Super Bowl XLVII in February 2013.
