The Ravens will be opening up their season on the road due to scheduling conflicts with the Orioles
This will be the first time a Superbowl winning team will play on the road as their season opener. Normally, the winning team from the Superbowl opens up at their home field as the first game. In this case, the Ravens will be on the road for their first game of the season. The Orioles and Ravens share parking lots, and would play at the same time, causing too many problems for both teams and fans with parking issues.
MLB and NFL came together to try and resolve the situation, and came down to a possible double header in the same day, where the Orioles would play during the day, and the Ravens at night. Unfortunately, they were unable to come to an agreement and said it posed too many problems
“After thorough discussions among the Orioles, the NFL and the Ravens, it became clear that holding both an Orioles’ game and the Ravens’ regular season opener on the same day would create logistical situations, would cause serious issues for the city of Baltimore, and fans for both teams. The Ravens greatly appreciate the willingness of the Orioles to adjust the start of their game in an effort to make this sports spectacular happen. in the end, anticipated problems with parking, rush-hour traffic, plus crowd and car congestion around Oriole Park and M&T Bank Stadium will keep the doubleheader from taking place.” - Dick Cass, president of Baltimore Ravens
The opponent playing the Ravens is unknown
