Baltimore Ravens 2020 schedule release: 3 big things
2. The Ravens could coast through the finish line:
The last stretch of games in this schedule aren’t the most intimidating match ups. The Ravens play the Browns in week 14. That game is always tough but the Ravens proved last year that if they have their head on straight they should prevail in that game. The final three games are against the Jacksonville Jaguars, the New York Giants and the Cincinnati Bengals. Strength of schedule doesn’t mean much this time of year because every year is a a different season. However, it’s hard to think that these games will be daunting to the Ravens.
The Jaguars are that team that can never seem to figure things out. They have some good players, but they aren’t expected to make a trip to the playoffs. The New York Giants could be decent if Daniel Jones takes the next step in his development, however the Giants seemed like a team that was more than a good offseason away from being a contender. The Bengals just had the number one pick. Plus, Jackson has seemingly been an unstoppable force in his three games starting against the Bengals.

Even if these three teams exceed expectations, it’s impossible to imagine them being in the Ravens’ class. The Ravens need to take care of business because they should be able to sweep the final quarter of the season.
The thing the Ravens have to continue to do in 2020 is to have a consistent effort on a week to week basis. In 2019 the Ravens squashed good teams and bad teams the same exact way. If the Ravens can continue this level of discipline and not play down to the level of their opponents, the Ravens should own the back portion of this schedule. That’s the key. The Ravens have to stay focused because they should be better than most of their competition.
