2020 NFL schedule release: Ravens to play five primetime games

To the surprise of no one, the Ravens will play on primetime a lot during the 2020 season - five times as a matter of fact. 

While there can always be more games flexed to different times later in the season, the Ravens are set to play in primetime five times this season: twice on Monday Night Football, once on Sunday Night Football, once on Thanksgiving and once on Thursday Night Football. Two of their five primetime games will be played on the road. 

The Ravens will open up with the Browns on Sept. 13 at home, immediately getting a divisional game under their belt in a strong matchup to open the season.

They'll alternate home and road games for the first seven weeks of the season, where they'll face the Texans in Houston, host the Chiefs (on Monday Night Football), head to FedEx Field to face the Redskins, host the Bengals, head to Philadelphia to play the Eagles and finish the first part of the season at home against the Steelers

After the bye week, they'll head on the road twice in back-to-back weeks to face the Colts and Patriots - the latter game on Sunday Night Football. 

Then, they'll come home to face the Titans in a rematch of last year's playoff defeat before heading to Pittsburgh on a short week for a Thanksgiving night game at Heinz Field on Nov. 26. 

A week later, they'll host the Cowboys on Thursday Night Football and then head to Cleveland on Dec. 14 for Monday Night Football, the final scheduled primetime game of the season. 

Their final two home games of the regular season will come on Dec. 20 and 27, as they'll host the Jaguars and Giants in weeks 15 and 16. 

Baltimore will end its regular season in Ohio against the revamped Cincinnati Bengals, who will be finishing their first year with Joe Burrow as the franchise quarterback. 

The schedule is highlighted by the number of primetime games, as from Nov. 15 to Dec. 14, four of the Ravens' five games will be played in primetime of some sort.
