Ravens 2021 Schedule at a Glance
Baltimore’s 2021 schedule is going to be right in the middle of the pack in terms of difficulty. The Ravens will play their normal slate of games against the AFC North, which features battles against the likes of the resurgent Cleveland Browns, steady Pittsburgh Steelers and potentially improved Cincinnati Bengals. Otherwise, the team’s crossover for the NFC will come in the form of contests against NFC North foes like the Green Bay Packers, Chicago Bears, Minnesota Vikings and Detroit Lions. The Ravens will also face games against the Los Angeles Rams, Los Angeles Chargers, Kansas City Chiefs, Miami Dolphins and Indianapolis Colts in 2021.
As a whole, this will make the Ravens’ schedule fairly difficult overall, but the team managed to go 10-6 last season even as there were plenty of struggles, so they could be looking at similar results this season or even better if their offense comes around.
This is merely the start of what figures to be a tough season for Baltimore in 2021, and an exciting moment for fans who get to see their team in prime time again as well as enjoy them in plenty of big matchups.
