The full 2013 NFL regular season schedule will be released on Thursday afternoon, but we already knew one bit of information prior to the official release. After a scheduling conflict that kept the Baltimore Ravens from hosting the 2013 season opener, we knew that the defending Super Bowl champions would open their season on the road in primetime.
Finally, we have an opponent.
The Ravens will travel to Mile High where they will face off against the Denver Broncos on Thursday night to officially kick off the 2013-14 NFL season.
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports had the report:
The Ravens will open the 2013 season at Denver in a Thurs night kickoff. Full NFL schedule to be released tonight

Last season, the Ravens ended the Broncos season in the divisional round of the playoffs.
Now, they will be looking for revenge with a new group of weapons, while the Ravens have watched their roster get depleted by retirement and free agency.
We are just a few hours away from the official unveiling of the full regular season schedule, but at least we now have a small taste of things to come and we know who will start the upcoming year of incredible action.
