The Baltimore Ravens have been one of the best teams in the AFC over the past three seasons. Baltimore finished 11-5 last year and while the playoffs have been a disappointment, this team is fired up heading into 2021. Still, the Ravens' 2021 schedule may screw this team over.

According to ESPN's Mike Clay, the Ravens own the 10th-most difficult schedule in the NFL for 2021. The order of games has not been set, but based on the current construction of the league's yearly schedule, the opponents Baltimore will face are already known.

Ravens Schedule 2021

Clay used known opponents and the current construction of league rosters to come up with his strength of schedule projection. Baltimore will square off against a group of talented teams hailing from the AFC West and NFC North next year.

Baltimore spent the offseason continuing to surround quarterback Lamar Jackson with talent as well as revamping the offensive line. In the 2021 NFL Draft, the Ravens added three playmakers including Minnesota wide receiver Rashod Bateman at No. 27 overall.

Last year's running game was lethal as the Ravens led the entire NFL with 191.9 yards per game on the ground. That's almost 30+ more yards per game on the ground than the second-ranking Tennessee Titans.

With a revamped offensive line, the Ravens are hopeful to repeat as the league's best rushing attack. As it stands, FanDuel Sportsbook is giving the Ravens +1400 odds to win the Super Bowl. Although, this 2021 schedule isn't going to make things any easier.
