>>Childs Walker, reporter: I know the schedule isn't overwhelming if you only look at winning percentages from last season. But, man, that road slate looks rough, with away games against the Falcons, Panthers, Chiefs, Chargers and Titans on top of the usual divisional fare. If we had to set the odds today, would the Ravens be favored in any of those games? On top of that, they have to play three road games in a row and four in five weeks during the first half of the season. None of those first-half trips are particularly long, but still, the Ravens will be hard-pressed to jump off to a roaring start. On the plus side, they get their Thursday game out of the way early, the bye falls at an optimal time, and they won't have to travel at all in November. The home schedule is less daunting, with games against Buccaneers and Broncos. And from an attendance/routine standpoint, they have to be thrilled that all but one of the home games are on Sunday at 1 p.m. I just don't see a lot of easy games for a Ravens team that's still trying to sort out its offense, especially if the Browns score big in the upcoming draft. I don't believe in projecting a team's record now, when there's still so much we don't know. But at first glance, it seems the Ravens might have to fight to stay above .500 again.
