The Ravens are scheduled to play against teams in the AFC West and NFC West this upcoming season, which means they'll be packing for a lot of trips out west. In fact, five of the first seven Ravens games this year are on the road; four of them are across the country.
Baltimore has decided to stay out on the West Coast after two of their games, in an effort to "limit the back-and-forth cross-country flights that take a toll on players’ bodies and mess with their sleep cycles." The team's itinerary goes like this:
- After the Week 1 opener in Denver, the Ravens will fly out to California, San Jose specifically, before they play the Raiders in Oakland the following week.
- After the Week 6 game in Silicon Valley against the 49ers, the team will fly directly to Phoenix, Arizona. They will then play the Cardinals the next week on Monday Night Football.
Flacco is cool with the extended west coast travel. His wife? Not so much. http://t.co/P1K561xf99— Baltimore Ravens (@Ravens) June 18, 2015
Ravens faithful on the West Coast however, may luck out, and get a double dose of Ravens football.
