With the AFC North champion Ravens enjoying a bye week before beginning their push to the Super Bowl in Indianapolis, the completion of the regular season allows us to take a look at what teams await in the 2012 season.
Of course, most of the schedule was already set with the Ravens taking on the AFC West and the NFC East in addition to their annual six AFC North games. The Ravens finishing in the top spot of the AFC North means they will welcome the New England Patriots to Baltimore and travel to Houston to take on the AFC South champion Texans.
The dates and times for their 16 games won’t be revealed until April, but the Ravens now have a better idea of what lies ahead in 2012.
Baltimore’s eight home games: Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver, Oakland, Dallas, New York Giants, New England.
The Ravens’ eight road games: Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Kansas City, San Diego, Philadelphia, Washington, Houston.
(Editor’s Note: The NFL confirms the Ravens will host the Denver Broncos and play a road game in San Diego in contrast to previous reports.)
