Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti is excited by the return of “Monday Night Football” to Baltimore. But on Friday, before the Ravens officially announced their expanded partnership with Under Armour, Bisciotti expressed disappointment with the NFL front-loading those primetime home games into the first month of the season.
Bisciotti also pointed out that the Ravens could potentially add another Sunday night game in the second half of the season because of the flex scheduling. They will be flex candidates if they are contenders again.
But at least Bisciotti, clad in a purple sport coat as he held court with Under Armour founder and CEO and Kevin Plank, was able to a silver lining for hosting those three primetime games in the month of September.
“It will be an exciting way to start the season, but I certainly wish those three prime-time games had been spread out a little,” Bisciotti said. “But from the weather standpoint, it will be nice because it’s the hottest time of year we’re going to get evening games as opposed to getting evening games in December.”
