BALTIMORE, MD - DECEMBER 31: Quarterback Joe Flacco /

The Baltimore Ravens have a difficult schedule in 2018 including dates with the New Orleans Saints, Atalanta Falcons, and Carolina Panthers.

The Baltimore Ravens just missed out on the playoffs in 2017 in heartbreaking fashion and finished up the season with a 9-7 record. They’re looking to get back into the postseason but have some tough games on the schedule. The NFC South sent three teams to the postseason last year and that’s one of the divisions the Ravens drew.

All of their major free agency moves revolved around the offense as they brought in an offensive lineman in Ryan Jensen and receivers Michael Crabtree and John Brown. They’re trying to give quarterback Joe Flacco some type of help as far as speed on the outside. The offense is going to have to score some points because the schedule features games against some high-powered offensive attacks. The defense better come to play this upcoming season.
