The Baltimore Ravens are just a few moments away from finding out what their 2024 schedule will look like as they try to chase a title again. Lamar Jackson is not going to have a cakewalk to a title this time around, as the Ravens will need to get through a murderer's row in the AFC.

The Ravens have the second-hardest schedule in the NFL next season, playing an absurd 10 games against teams who made the playoffs last season. Jackson and the rest of the roster will likely head into this season knowing they will need to flatten some of the best teams in the league.

The Ravens need to take advantage of their "easier" games and simultaneously figure out how to step on the gas against contenders. If they can get through this hellacious schedule, they will be hardened for battle when the postseason comes around.

Ravens schedule 2024: Ranking opponents from easiest to hardest

14. New York Giants
13. Denver Broncos
12. Washington Commanders
11. Las Vegas Raiders
10. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Commanders and Broncos will be trying to take down one of the best teams in the league with a rookie quarterback, which could lead to problems. The Giants' roster is completely in flux, and the Raiders have instability at quarterback that could cancel out the threat of Davante Adams. The Bucs should be a fun matchup if Baker Mayfield stays hot.

9. Los Angeles Chargers
8. Pittsburgh Steelers
7. Cleveland Browns
6. Houston Texans
5. Buffalo Bills

Justin Herbert will be talented enough to give Jim Harbaugh a fighting chance against his brother. Both the Steelers and Browns have elite defenses, but their veteran quarterbacks both have question marks surrounding them. The Texans and Bills have volatile defenses, but CJ Stroud and Josh Allen are set up for some tremendous back-and-forth duels with Jackson.

4. Dallas Cowboys
3. Philadelphia Eagles
2. Cincinnati Bengals
1. Kansas City Chiefs

Dak Prescott and Micah Parsons are both at the top of their game, and the Eagles' collapse at the end of the season shouldn't overshadow how deep and deadly they can be when they start fast. The oft-injured Burrow will present a meaty challenge when healthy, but the opener against Kansas City could be the best game on the schedule.

The Ravens will open the season against Kansas City, giving them a perfect ability to show the rest of the league how good they are right off the bat.
