It's nice to see the Ravens attract some of the attention they deserve.
Yesterday, the NFL announced that the Ravens' Week 2 preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles will be nationally televised on NFL Network. Mark your calendars for Saturday, August 22nd, as the Ravens will take on the Eagles in Philadelphia at 7 PM EST. For those of you who are Baltimore locals, the game will still be broadcast on WBAL in Baltimore and WJLA in Washington, D.C.
This matchup will create a lot of buzz, as the Ravens and Eagles will practice for three days together leading up to their Week 2 preseason meeting. Philadelphia is also very buzzworthy in the NFL community, with Head Coach Chip Kelly's unique offense attracting much attention, as well as media darling Tim Tebow, who the team signed recently.
This is now the Ravens sixth scheduled primetime game on their schedule for the upcoming season:
- (Preseason) Week 2, Aug. 22: at Philadelphia Eagles
- Week 4, Oct 1: at Pittsburgh Steelers (Thursday Night Football)
- Week 7, Oct. 26: at Arizona Cardinals (Monday Night Football)
