Due to a scheduling conflict with the Orioles, the Ravens will play their opening Thursday Night game on the road....Pretty ridiculous, but PFT makes a decent case for Miami.http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/20 ... but-where/
The most intriguing matchup comes in Denver, where the Ravens stunned the Broncos in the playoffs. But why should the Ravens have to roll into the lion’s den for their first game of the season? An argument could be made that the Ravens should be given the ability to choose their opponent for the Week One road opener — or at a minimum to veto the possibility of games at Denver or Pittsburgh.
Our preference would be Miami, which would guarantee a sellout for the Dolphins, a high-profile team (at least for now) via their free-agency moves — which included the pilfering of Ravens linebacker Dannell Ellerbe. Also, having the NFL season start in South Florida could help when the time comes to finagle votes for the Sun Life Stadium renovation referendum.
