Some teams, and certain matchups, are just destined to produce TV gold under the big lights of primetime football. The Baltimore Ravens are one such example as a team that competes and wins games year after year, rarely missing the playoffs. It also doesn’t hurt that they compose one half of one of the greatest rivalries in all of sport: Ravens vs. Steelers.
So we already know that we are going to see at least one or two primetime TV games on the 2015 Ravens schedule. It’s an annual trend and one that doesn’t promise to stop anytime soon, unless the team suddenly goes off the rails. This trend holds true for the 2015 season as the Ravens are set to play at least 5 primetime games, unless any additional ones get flexed out.
The following games are scheduled to be played “under the lights:”
@ Pittsburgh Steelers, Thursday Oct. 1st @ 8:25 pm
@ Arizona Cardinals, Monday, Oct. 26th @ 8:30 pm
@ Cleveland Browns, Monday, Nov. 30th @ 8:30 pm
vs. Seattle Seahawks, Sunday, Dec. 13th @ 8:30 pm
vs. Pittsburgh Steelers, Sunday, Dec. 27th @ 8:30 pm
The fact that the Ravens once again face their bitter rivals, the Steelers, on primetime for both regular season matchups solidifies the fact that this is one of the best rivalries in sports. These two teams always put on a slugfest of physical football, no matter whose stadium they are playing in.
Playing at Arizona is a particularly tough spot as well, as is the home game against the Seahawks. Unlike most teams, don’t expect Seattle to be phased by a roudy M&T Stadium, since they play in what might be the rowdiest of all.
Still, I expect the most interesting game of the bunch to be the last one as the Ravens host the Steelers in week 16. That game might just decide the division as all four AFC North teams face a rough schedule next season. And wouldn’t that just be a fitting way to do it.
