The Baltimore Ravens are set for what promises to be a 2021 season not lacking in excitement. And with a league-high five primetime games, the spotlight will certainly be on the organization.

The Ravens will begin the year on the road under the bright lights of Monday Night Football as they travel to Las Vegas to take on the Raiders in Allegiant Stadium.

It’s a highly anticipated matchup, but there are other games on the schedule that more people are looking forward to. In fact, a pair of games on Baltimore’s schedule might be two of the most anticipated matchups of the entire season.

NFL.com’s Adam Schein recently released a list of the top nine primetime games in the NFL this season. And the Ravens made multiple appearances on the list.

The Ravens have an exciting schedule on tap for 2021

Schein ranked the Ravens’ Week 12 matchup with the Cleveland Browns on Sunday Night Football as the sixth most must-see primetime game of the season.

He then listed Baltimore’s early-season Week 2 showdown with the Kansas City Chiefs as the fourth-best primetime game of the year.

In fact, the Ravens were one of only three teams to appear on the list twice alongside the two teams that squared off in Super Bowl LV — the Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Needless to say, the Ravens will be must-watch football this year.

Of course, Baltimore’s rivalry with the Browns dates back decades at this point and has become increasingly competitive in recent years. Now with Cleveland boasting their best roster in a long time, their 2021 matchup could prove to be an exciting affair.

Especially since the two teams are set to meet just two weeks later in a rematch.

As for the Chiefs game, the two have formed a thrilling rivalry in recent seasons, although one that’s been pretty one-sided. The Ravens are 0-3 against the Chiefs with Lamar Jackson under center and will be looking to end that streak this year.

To do so, they’ll have to defeat a stacked Chiefs team in their home opener in Week 2. This one promises to be an exciting showdown with plenty of scoring.
