2015 Baltimore Ravens Schedule: Predicting Every Game

3 of 6

Week Six: @ San Francisco 49ers

The 49ers might have had the roughest offseason of any NFL team, so it’s hard to say what they might do in 2015.  I tend to think they will regress, perhaps a lot, after waving goodbye to one of the best linebackers in the game and multiple other key players and coaches.  They did sign former Raven Torrey Smith, so how he performs will be interesting to watch.

Prediction: Ravens 23, 49ers 14 (4-2)

Week Seven: @ Arizona Cardinals

This is a tough spot, no matter how you look at it.  A long trip and a late night against a team with one of the best coaches in the NFL equals a potential disaster.  Not to mention Carson Palmer has traditionally been a Raven killer, racking up more wins against the team than any other quarterback.

Prediction: Cardinals 27, Ravens 13 (4-3)

Week Eight: vs. San Diego Chargers

Assuming that Phillip Rivers is still in a Charger uniform this season, this won’t be an easy game.  The Chargers beat the Ravens on their own turf last year in a game that went down to the wire.  If Rivers is still around, expect him to be pretty motivated in a contract year.  Still, I have some faith that they will pull this one out in a close contest and head into the bye with some confidence.

Prediction: Ravens 27, Chargers 26 (5-3)

Week Nine: Bye Week
