Ravens to open season hosting Cincinnati on Monday night

April 17, 2012 | WNST Staff

After publicly campaigning to play a Monday night game in Baltimore, Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti will finally get his wish.

WNST.net has learned the Ravens will open the season by welcoming the AFC North rival Cincinnati Bengals to town in a nationally-televised game on Monday, Sept. 10. It will be the first Monday night game played in Baltimore since the Ravens played the Patriots on Dec. 3, 2007, a game in which New England won in the closing seconds to remain undefeated.
