I take a look at the Baltimore Ravens finalized 2017 schedule
Now that the Pro Bowl is over, the last official game of the 2017 NFL season will take place on Sunday. If you are not a Patriots or Falcons fan, you will suffer watching the Super Bowl, wishing your team was playing in the big game. Ravens fans know the feeling, especially since their team missed the playoffs again this season. But like any sports season, there is always another one to look forward to next year.
The official dates for games have not been released yet, expect for the London games. While the dates have not been released, the home and away opponents have been finalized. The Ravens will travel all over the country as well as across the pond for the first time.
Here are how schedules are made in the NFL (Per NFL.com): The Ravens 2017 Schedule
- Play a division from opposing conference (NFC North)
- Play all the teams in same division twice (Browns, Steelers, Bengals)
- Plays one game against each of the four teams from a division within its conference. Based on a rotation. (AFC South)
- Play remaining 2 games against teams from two divisions in own conference that finished in same place. (Dolphins/Raiders)
Based on these opponents, I give my 3 games to look forward to for the 2017 season.
