With three games left at home and on the road, Ravens schedule is favorable

The week 11 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Heinz fields was arguably the hardest game on the schedule for the Baltimore Ravens in 2012. While they may have caught a break by facing a Steelers team without Ben Roethlisberger, the Ravens were able to make it out of Pittsburgh with a victory against their biggest rivals and are now standing tall in the AFC with an 8-2 record.

The Ravens still have many tough opponents including the Broncos, Giants, and Steelers left on their schedule. However, they will be playing them on their home turf where they have a current NFL-best 15 straight wins.

It’s no secret that the Ravens play their best at home, and because of this, the Ravens have a very favorable schedule for the rest of the season. Their remaining road game opponents have a combined record of 13-17, which bodes well for the Ravens who struggle greatly on the road.

This Sunday, the Ravens face the San Diego Chargers, who are in peril as the poor play of their quarterback, Phillip Rivers, has put them in a tough position within their division. While desperate for a win, the Chargers have not played a decent game in three weeks and don’t look to threating to the Ravens, who are on a three-game win streak.

The Ravens will also see the Washington Redskins on the road in week 15 as they gear up to face the electrifying Robert Griffin III, who has been nothing short of spectacular this season. While his mobility does bring a new element and challenge to the Ravens defense, the ‘Skins have been very inconsistent this season and have been affected by various injuries.

The final road game for the Ravens will be in week 17 against the Cincinnati Bengals, who they haven’t seen since week 1. The Bengals have a lot of upside with the young talent of Andy Dalton and A.J. Green, but all of their wins this season have come against inferior teams, with the exception of the New York Giants. They don’t play particularly well against teams above .500, which we all expect the Ravens to be come week 17.
