Your official Ravens season-opener drinking game

For The Baltimore Sun

Yeah, we know. The game isn't in Baltimore. And whether you've moved on and are just excited for the season to kick off or you're still in a deep state of depression, there's only one thing to do: drink.

So, why not make it fun? Follow these rules and you'll be among the most boozed Baltimoreans in the city by halftime.

Take a drink if

Peyton Manning calls an audible at the line of scrimmage.

• The names Ed Reed, Paul Kruger or Anquan Boldin are mentioned.
