Mike Preson, columnist: The first four or five games of the season seem to work in the Ravens' favor. I like the season opener here with Buffalo, Sexy Rexy Ryan, Tyrod Taylor, Ed Reed and the Buffalo Bills coming to town. And then the Ravens have two road games against Cleveland and Jacksonville, and those two cities are not places where it's hard to win on the road. It certainly isn't like the Ravens' road schedule last year when they went to the West Coast four times in the first half of the season. Plus, the Ravens are playing teams from the NFC East, not exactly a bunch of world beaters. I like the Ravens getting the bye week before they play the Pittsburgh Steelers, but the last four games on the 2016 schedule will make or break the Ravens season. They play New England on the road and then host Philadelphia, but then play at Pittsburgh and Cincinnati. That's a tough stretch.
