The NFL seems to want to make the AFC North bookends this year. Baltimore and Cincinnati play each other on the first and last weeks of the season (open in cincy, finish in Baltimore), Pittsburgh and Cleveland do the same.
Other interesting tidbits from the schedule:
Ravens play week 3 in London against the Jaguars then play the Steelers the next weekend at home. Next game have to travel to Oakland. That's an interesting stretch.
A home Thursday night game against the Dolphins.
Finally get a home Monday night game against the Texans.
A Sunday night trip to Pittsburgh.
Only two 4p Sunday games, at Oakland, home against Colts.
Their bye is in week 10.
