The Baltimore Ravens are preparing for what should be an exciting 2021 season. Fresh off an 11-5 performance a year ago, the Ravens will be looking to return to the postseason for the fourth consecutive season.

Following three straight disappointing playoff defeats, Baltimore will hope to finally get over the proverbial hump and compete with the AFC’s best.

To do so, they’ll have to navigate through a very difficult 2021 schedule.

The Ravens are set to have the second-hardest schedule in the entire NFL in 2021 when factoring in 2020 records. The first half offers a few challenging matchups, but the true challenge comes in the second half.

Numerous late-season divisional games paired with a few difficult matchups down the stretch make the second half of the schedule somewhat of a gauntlet.

Essentially, if the Ravens are going to return to the playoffs in 2021, they’re going to have to earn it.

The team is also set to play in a total of five primetime games, the maximum allowed by the NFL. The spotlight will be on the Ravens to perform this season — hopefully they’re up to the task.

But which games on their 2021 schedule are the most difficult, at least on paper? We take a look at the three hardest games the Ravens will play in 2021.
