I thought I read somewhere that the Ravens schedule was very "fair" as in very balanced. Either way, the rookies and 2nd year QB have a lot ahead of them.
Whatup brother Jigga
Always nice to see you.
Lets do this together then, because I went through this with my Ravens fan friend and we were absolutely terrified. There don't appear to be many "gimme" games, and it has a few BRUTAL runs in my humble opinion. It is a 1st place schedule thanks to them winning the North, and I truly believe that when the Ravens saw it, that influenced them going all-in on a developmental year for the offense / to match up with all the track meet games they may find themselves in now.
Remember - they literally lost all of their LB's. This is not the 2018 Ravens D.
Week 1 @Miami Dolphins - warm up game. Lovely! Easy W
Week 2 Arizona Cardinals - fun game, could be a track meet. Slight edge to Ravens, but Cards will be much improved... W
Week 3 @ Kansas City Chiefs - full track meet game, defense lost too much to be a repeat of last season - L
Week 4 Cleveland Browns - Browns are a juggernaught now, probable L
Week 5 @Pittsburgh Steelers - 50/50 game, lets say they split the series with home wins so L
Week 6 Cincinnati Bengals - Probable W
Week 7 @ Seattle Seahawks - Probable L
Week 8 BYE
Week 9 New England Patriots - Probable L
Week 10 @ Cincinnati Bengals - Probable W
Week 11 Houston Texans - Awesome game if everyone's still healthy, I would pick the T's so L
Week 12 @ Los Angeles Rams - Slugfest, probable L
Week 13 San Francisco 49ers - 50/50 game, if 49ers are as improved as I think they might be, probable L
Week 14 @ Buffalo Bills - Sneaky trap game, but lets say W
Week 15 New York Jets - will be much improved, could very well be an L but lets say W
Week 16 @ Cleveland Browns - probable L
Week 17 Pittsburgh Steelers - split series so W
So that would be 7-9, and would presume they take care of business in the few "easy" games they do have. Injuries will obviously shape this and the hindsight on this post will no doubt be wonderful... but with the rise of the Browns, and the Steelers always competent - I see the AFC North as a total slugout this year.
