2013 NFL Kickoff: ? at Baltimore; 7 months away
 
7 months away, and Baltimore will open the 2013 NFL season hosting who?

They host the Packers, Patriots, Texans, Vikings, and Jets, plus their 3 divisionals.
Of course, that includes the Steelers and Big Ben.

So realistically, it's down to:

-Patriots (45% chance IMO)
-Steelers (45% chance)
-Packers (9%)
-Texans (1%)

2014 Super Bowl Odds to Win
http://www.betvega.com/super-bowl-odds/

Denver Broncos
7/1

San Francisco 49ers
7/1

New England Patriots
15/2

Green Bay Packers
10/1

Baltimore Ravens
12/1

Seattle Seahawks
12/1

Houston Texans
14/1

Atlanta Falcons
18/1

New Orleans Saints
18/1

Pittsburgh Steelers
18/1

Chicago Bears
20/1

New York Giants
20/1

How the hell is Chicago as high as the Giants?
I'll take the Giants at 20-1, in an odd# season (2007 & 2011 champs).
Denver 1st overall? After the flop-choke-job this year with everything set on a tee for them? I don't see that.

Anyway, the Ravens will host 4 of those teams.
Who do you THINK will be the game that NBC gets for that Thursday Night Opener
Who do you WANT if different?

(BTW, in case you were wondering, Raven fans, their road games are:
Buffalo, Miami, Chicago, Detroit, Denver.
Rematch in Denver will get a high bid from NBC and ESPN.
I hope the game at Detroit is on Thanksgiving
.)

I suppose they could put the Jets just for the New York and/or comedy factor.

As soon as I saw this thread I assumed we were slated to play the NFC North this year.

I'd love to see the Steelers play this one. Probably going to be NE though.

KCJ58 02-05-2013 11:22 PM

i voted for the Steelers because those games are always entertaining. But you could add Denver and even the Bengals to the mix

Browns.....

I prefer non-divisional games to kick things off. Things are so screwy in Week 1. To have a team put in a potentially bad spot later in the year because of what happened in Week 1 isn't something that I like to see.

I'd actually like to see Atlanta v. Baltimore.

Houston would be a great test with how Houston steam rolled the Ravens this year and marquee matchup between Watt and Flacco, plus see the Ravens run defense without Ray Ray manning the middle, and you have all those Texan migrants on the Ravens who got rings.

I'd like to see Packers at Ravens. I'm a fan of non-conference primetime matchups because the teams face each other so rarely. I'm guessing it will be the Patriots though. Probably a better storyline involved.

Atlanta doesn't play Baltimore next season.

I agree with those non-conference marquee matchups.
I loved seeing San Fran @ New England.

But I think it will be the AFC Title game rematch of New England at Baltimore.

But they might want to save that game for later in the year.... and have the Ravens open with the Steelers here, and then finish at the Steelers in week 17.

Do we really need two threads trying to predict the week one scheudle? Whatever, Broncos.

CJSchneider 02-06-2013 09:56 AM

I went with the Steelers.
