The Baltimore Ravens have the easiest schedule in terms of strength of schedule heading into 2020.
Outside of a matchup with Kansas City, nothing on the schedule is particularly scary, especially with their trip to Foxborough not seemingly as difficult as it would have been in years past.
The club will take on the NFC East in non-conference battle. In addition to those clubs, and their own division, they get the AFC West.
Ravens’ Early Light Travel Schedule
As Peter King points out in his latest FMIA, the Ravens won’t need to get on a plane for a major stretch of the season. Cleveland comes to town in week 1 and they travel to Houston in week 2, but after that, the Ravens won’t get on a plane until week 9.
|Week 2||at Texans|
|Week 4||at Redskins|
|Week 6||at Eagles|
|Week 9||at Colts|
|Week 10||at Patriots|
|Week 12||at Steelers|
|Week 14||at Browns|
|Week 17||at Bengals|
The two road games between week 3 and week 9: Washington, which is a 31-mile bus ride, and Philadelphia, which is a 106-mile bus ride.
After their plane-less stretch, the Ravens will fly five times in the final nine weeks of the season, as King writes.
At Indianapolis, Week 9: A 82-minute flight.
At New England (Providence airport), Week 10: A 52-minute flight.
At Pittsburgh, Week 12: A 38-minute flight.
At Cleveland, Week 14: A 54-minute flight.
At Cincinnati, Week 17: A 71-minute flight.
This is something to keep an eye on for bettors when handicapping games for the Ravens.
