6. 2015 schedule

The Ravens will have one of the toughest schedules in recent years this season as they will open up the season in Denver. The last time they played there was in the playoffs in 2012. Three of the four games following their opener will come against divisional teams, continuing the thick competition from last season.

They will also have a few games on the schedule against teams they haven’t seen in the regular season in recent years, including the Seattle Seahawks who came close to winning back-to-back Super Bowl titles last year, the 49ers without Jim Harbaugh involved though, and the Arizona Cardinals in a night game in Arizona.

The Ravens will have a roster equipped to battle it out against these teams, but whether or not they’ll place well enough to make another playoff appearance, we’ll just have to wait and see.
