Now that we are almost through the month of August, our attention turns to the regular season for the Baltimore Ravens. And oh what a season it will be.
There’s nothing quite like NFL Sunday in America: the tailgating, the passionate fans, and of course the sold-out stadiums designed to bring the noise! M&T Bank Stadium is no exception.
If you’ve never experienced a Baltimore Ravens game in real life, here are the four can’t miss games in 2015:
September 27, 1:00 PM
The division-rival Cincinnati Bengals roll into town for what is sure to be a heated matchup. Not only is it the first intra-division game of the season but it is also the home opener for the Baltimore Ravens. Divisional matchups usually don’t need any additional hype, and that is certainly the case here as the Ravens will be looking to seek revenge after losing to the Bengals twice last year.
San Diego Chargers
November 1, 1:00 PM
The San Diego Chargers, coming off a 9-7 season, come into the year as bona-fide playoff contenders thanks to the addition of first-round pick Melvin Gordon and the always reliable, sometimes volatile, Phillip Rivers. After winning nine games and not making the playoffs in 2014, the Chargers are sure to be playing with a vengeance this year. Like the Ravens, they play in a tough division and will be in contention for a wild-card spot if they can’t secure the AFC West crown.
December 13, 8:30 PM
When your game is in prime-time and nationally televised, you know it’s a big deal. And this one certainly will be. The 2012 Champions will face off with the 2013 Champions and two-time defending NFC Champions. Star-studded doesn’t even begin describe this game as two of the most notoriously tough defenses will go toe-to-toe on a chilly December night in Maryland.
December 27, 8:30 PM
Speaking of not needing hype, the Pittsburgh Steelers will be in town two days after Christmas in what is sure to be a game with serious playoff implications. Big Ben, Antonio Brown, Laveon Bell vs Flacco, Justin Forsett, and Steve Smith. It doesn’t get much better than that in what has turned into a true rivalry that all NFL fans can appreciate.
