Ravens really couldn't have drawn up a better schedule themselves

Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti and head coach John Harbaugh have long clamored for the Ravens to get a home Monday night game; their last five and 11 of their past 12 Monday night games have been away from M&T Bank Stadium. Their game against the Texans is their first Monday night home game since 2012 ... when they won the Super Bowl.

September 17 CLEVELAND BROWNS - M&T BANK STADIUM - 1:00 p.m.

Sunday, Oct. 1, at M&T Bank Stadium vs. Pittsburgh Steelers, at 1 p.m.

Sunday, Oct 15, CHICAGO, 1 p.m.

Sunday. Oct. 22, at Minnesota, 1 p.m. The Ravens are 5-0 on Thursdays at M&T Bank Stadium.

Sunday, Nov. 19, at Green Bay Packers, at 1 p.m.

Sunday, Dec. 17, at Cleveland, 1 p.m. It's the new home of the RotoExperts in the Morning and brand new shows featuring your favorite hosts, such as Tony Cincotta, Scott Engel, Jake Ciely, Nando Di Fino, Corey Parson, Pat Mayo, Joe Pisapia and many more!

Monday, Nov. 27, at M&T Bank Stadium vs. Houston Texans, at 8:30 p.m.

In this year's cycle, the Ravens will face off against the AFC South and the NFC North, which means three more playoff teams from last year, the Lions, Packers, and Texans.

For the 11th-consecutive season (2007-17), the Ravens and Steelers will face off in a nationally-televised contest when Baltimore travels to Pittsburgh for a Sunday night showdown on December 10.

The Baltimore Ravens might have more prime-time games and might have had a better 2016 record, but Las Vegas oddsmakers aren't exactly high on them starting the season off on the right foot.

No matter how good or bad Cincinnati is, they are a headache for the Ravens; they barely survived them at home last November when a loss would have all but killed their season.

When Baltimore hosts Miami on October 26, the Ravens will enter the game with wins in six of their last seven Thursday night tilts.

With the suspension of Kenneth Dixon, newly acquired Danny Woodhead will be given the chance to be the lead dog of this running game for the first month of the season.

Besides the Sunday night game in Pittsburgh, the quirk in their late schedule is in Week 16, the Saturday afternoon before Christmas at home against the Colts, always an emotional situation for Baltimore fans. They will open the season in Cincinnati.

Baltimore seeks its first-ever victory (0-3) at Green Bay's Lambeau Field, where the Ravens have not been scheduled since 2009. Since 2013, Baltimore is 2-6, with one of their wins coming in overtime.

The Ravens have that complicated schedule after the bye, in the final seven weeks, so they need to jump out to a good start (it helped them a year ago when they started 3-0).
