As the Ravens’ season ended Sunday, their 2022 schedule started to come into focus.
The Ravens will face at least five playoff teams next season, including a home game against the AFC East champion Buffalo Bills and road tests against the NFC South champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the New England Patriots.
In addition to their six games against the AFC North — three at home and three away against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals — the Ravens will face the entire AFC East, the entire NFC South and the last-place finishers in the AFC West, AFC South and NFC East.
Under the NFL’s scheduling rotation, the Ravens will host the Carolina Panthers, Miami Dolphins, Atlanta Falcons and Denver Broncos along with the Bills. They’ll play road games against the New York Jets, New Orleans Saints, Jacksonville Jaguars and New York Giants as well as the Buccaneers and Patriots.
For the first time since 2017, the Ravens don’t have Kansas City on their regular-season schedule. The Chiefs’ four-game winning streak in the series ended this season with a 36-35 loss in Baltimore in September. With the Ravens scheduled to face Tampa Bay, they’ll also likely face quarterback Tom Brady for the first time since he left New England for the Buccaneers after the 2019 season.
Home: Bengals, Browns, Steelers, Bills, Dolphins, Falcons, Panthers and Broncos
Road: Bengals, Browns, Steelers, Patriots, N.Y. Jets, Saints, Buccaneers, Jaguars and N.Y. Giants
