Breaking Down the Baltimore Ravens Schedule

3 of 18

Week 2: Oakland Raiders – Sept. 20, 2015 (4:05 p.m.)

2014 Record: 3-13
Head-to-Head Record: 7-1
Last Meeting: Ravens 55 – Broncos 20 (Nov. 11, 2012)

To say the Ravens have owned this series is an understatement. The Raiders lone win came in 2003, but other than that, Baltimore has demolished Oakland by a total score of 193-96 in the eight games.

The Raiders are coming off a 3-13 season, but the record does not do them justice in terms of effort. The Raiders battled with some teams down the stretch, but also had lapses where they looked down right pathetic. They are expecting better things in 2015 with another year of experience for Derek Carr, but should not put up much of a fight in a strong AFC West.

The meeting with the Raiders could be a gift for the Ravens if they should falter in Week 1 at Denver. John Harbaugh would feel confident entering divisional play if Ravens were to start the season 2-0.

Next: Week 3
