The Baltimore Ravens are my favorite team in professional sports. They are the source of a lot of my sadness and a lot of my happiness; it’s a bit of a rollercoaster. As I sit here, we are just mere hours away from the beginning of the 2021 NFL season. Before everything kicks off, here are my predictions for the outcomes of the Baltimore Ravens 2021 schedule.
Week 1: Ravens 24 - Raiders 10
Week 2: Chiefs 24 - Ravens 20
Week 3: Ravens 31 - Lions 10
Week 4: Ravens 28 - Broncos 13
Week 5: Colts 10 - Ravens 24
Week 6: Chargers 17 - Ravens 27
Week 7: Bengals 10 - Ravens 24
Week 8: Vikings 14 - Ravens 35 (I’m going to this game!!)
Week 9: Ravens 28 - Dolphins 14
Week 10: Ravens 17 - Bears 10
Week 11: Browns 24 - Ravens 31
Week 12: Ravens 35 - Steelers 14
Week 13: Ravens 24 - Browns 28
Week 14: Packers 31 - Ravens 24 (I’m going to this game too!)
Week 15: Ravens 31 - Bengals 10
Week 16: Rams 17 - Ravens 20
Week 17: Steelers 9 - Ravens 24
There it is, my official predictions. I did my best to remove my bias, but I couldn’t help but give my squad the edge in a lot of these matchups. We’ve been hit hard by injuries this year, but I think the offense will still thrive with Lamar in the backfield. The Latavius Murray signing will also be pretty helpful in keeping that run game alive. Cleveland is as good as they’ve been in decades, and I see them taking one of the two games from us. Can’t say the same for Cincinnati or Pittsburgh, though, as I see both of them having mediocre years.
14-3 is pretty ambitious, but our schedule isn’t that tough. The matchups against Chicago and LA (Chargers) could potentially go the other way, if those teams really ball out this year. I look forward to returning to this list in the coming weeks to see how well (or poorly) it ages. Go Ravens!
