The Ravens have been told to have an easy schedule. It is hard to call their schedule overly grueling but they do play in the toughest division in the NFL. The Pittsburgh Steelers could have the best offensive attack in football. The Bengals have the Ravens’ number. The Browns always battle Baltimore with ferocity.
The Ravens have their toughest tests in the second half of the season. They have two games against the Bengals late in the season, including the regular season finale. They have a Christmas showdown in Pittsburgh. The Ravens have to build wins in the first half of the season. After their bye week it gets much tougher. They also have a late season battle with the New England Patriots, so it’s not just the AFC North they have to fend off. If the Ravens stumble in just a couple of these big battles it could hurt their playoff positioning.
