Baltimore Ravens will have five primetime games:
The Baltimore Ravens are one of the best teams in the entire league with few glaring holes and a plethora of talent loaded throughout the roster. So long as Lamar Jackson is under-center, these Ravens are as potent as a team as you’ll find with a defense to match.
Because of this, Baltimore is a team that will draw crowds and high ratings the league owners will love to see. The Ravens are must-watch football and the best way to give the fans what they want is to feature them in primetime games.
Baltimore will almost certainly get a Sunday Night Football matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs, who are perhaps the only team that can rival the Ravens talent. Baltimore will also have games against the Pittsburgh Steelers and Houston Texans highlighted for another Sunday or even Monday Night Football appearance. The Ravens will likely appear in a Thursday Night Football game, as well.
There are a few other games that should get consideration for primetime as well, such as the New England Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys, and the Cleveland Browns. All of those teams are playoff-hopeful squads that would love to make a statement vs. Baltimore.
All-in-all, five teams were granted five primetime games in 2019 and it seems fair to assume the Ravens will be one of a handful of teams to appear in primetime in 2020. If the owners care about making money, they’ll give Baltimore a slew of opportunities to show off this deadly squad to a national audience.
