The NFL has announced it will release the 2018 schedule Thursday night at 8 — and of course it will be on NFL Network. Who doesn’t like a good “schedule release” show?
In anticipation of the riveting drama about to unfold, here’s a reminder of the teams the Ravens will play at M&T Bank Stadium and on the road:
» Home: Bengals, Browns, Steelers, Bills, Broncos, Buccaneers, Raiders and Saints.
» Road: Bengals, Browns, Steelers, Falcons, Panthers, Chiefs, Chargers and Titans.
The Ravens finished the 2017 season with a 9-7 record and out of the playoffs for the third consecutive year.
They deserve a nice bump for their trade for Trent Richardson alone, but how about that win over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday? This team -- not the Houston Texans -- are officially the one to beat in the AFC South.
