The Schedule in 2013
The Baltimore Ravens are ready to take flight in 2013 as they take on some of the best competition
that the National Football League has to offer. This team is coming off a 2012 season in which they put together a phenomenal
playoff run and won the Super Bowl. The Ravens are looking to repeat as NFL champs this season, but they'll have to run the
gauntlet of their challenging schedule first.
The Ravens will host the Cincinnati Bengals on November 10th for what
should be a great contest between division rivals. Both of these teams surely have their sights set on the AFC North title
this season, and this contest could go a long way in deciding who has the upper hand in the division. The Ravens will have
to look to contain wide receiver A.J. Green, who has catapulted himself to the upper echelon of wideouts in the NFL in just
a few short years. If the Ravens can lock down Green, then they should have a good shot at winning this game.
has another division rival coming to town on Nov 28th, when the Pittsburgh Steelers show up. M&T Bank Stadium is sure
to be rocking for this one, as this rivalry has become one of the best in the entire league. The Steelers always have a hard-nosed
team that is looking to pound the ball down their opponents' throats, but the Ravens know this team well and have outmaneuvered
them in the past.
Perhaps the biggest test of the season for Baltimore, however, will take place on December 22nd when
they play host to the New England Patriots. The Ravens and Patriots have had some epic battles in the past, both in the regular
season and playoffs, so every player is going to be amped up for this contest. The key to stopping New England, as always,
is to attempt to slow down quarterback Tom Brady. That is easier said than done, though.
Baltimore Ravens are coming off a fantastic 2012 season in which they were crowned the Super Bowl champs after defeating the
San Francisco 49ers in the big game. The Ravens come into 2013 with high hopes for a repeat, though there was a lot of roster
turnover in the offseason. The Ravens gave quarterback Joe Flacco a big contract in the offseason, and it appears that this
signal caller is ready to live up to his hefty deal. The Baltimore offense, however, starts with running back Ray Rice. Rice
has been one of the most dynamic and versatile backs in the National Football League for several years now. If a defense that
lost a lot of key players in the offseason can come together quickly, the Ravens should have a decent shot at winning the
AFC North and perhaps beyond.
There is nothing better than seeing a sporting event live
and in person. Sports have been a part of cultures around the world for a very long time, and spectators have always enjoyed
watching athletes compete at the highest of levels. When you're there in the stands at a sporting event like this one, you're
treated to seeing some of the most talented athletes in the entire world going head to head with everything on the line. There's
nothing that compares to the atmosphere at a game, where you're surrounded by fans that are all there to enjoy a great spectacle
The National Football League is the premier sports league in the United States of America for a reason, as
it boasts some of the most incredible athletes known to man. The NFL has become renowned for its brand of exciting football
that you can't find anywhere else in the world. With quarterbacks that can put the ball anywhere on the field, running backs
that can make a move to avoid a defender and be on a breakaway for the end zone in no time, receivers that routinely make
highlight reel catches and defensive players that put some of the hardest hits on opponents game in and game out, the NFL
is simply the cream of the crop when it comes to a sports-watching experience.
People from all over the world love the
National Football League, and there is even talk of the NFL going global. There are already multiple games played in London,
England each and every season, and many people thinks it's only a matter of time before the league has teams based in Europe.
The NFL is taking over for a reason, because it's simply riveting to see a game in person when these amazing athletes hit
the field to do battle on the gridiron.
What served as inspiration for the name Baltimore Ravens?
answer is the famous poem "The Raven," written by Edgar Allen Poe.
The Baltimore Ravens are actually
an incarnation of the original Cleveland Browns franchise, as the team moved from Cleveland in 1999. Though the Browns were
recreated in Cleveland shortly thereafter, the Ravens technically retain all of the Browns history prior to 1999. The team
quickly gained popularity upon moving to Baltimore, winning the Super Bowl after the 2000 season. The Ravens won the Super
Bowl again following the 2012 campaign.
