May be a good thing for the Ravens’ sake

Though restrictions may be easing in America and across the globe, the NFL has officially decided there will not be international games played this season.

“After considerable analysis, we believe the decision to play all our games domestically this season is the right one for our players, our clubs, and all our fans in the US, Mexico and UK,” said NFL Executive Vice President, Chief Strategy and Growth Officer Christopher Halpin. “We greatly appreciate the support of our governmental and stadium partners in Mexico and the United Kingdom, who all agree with this decision, and we look forward to returning for games in both countries in the 2021 season.

We also thank our incredible fans in those territories for their passionate support of the NFL. We will continue to serve them through our outstanding media partners and by being active supporters of both grassroots football and COVID-19 relief efforts in Mexico and the UK.”

Confirming the Ravens will not play across country borders may be a good thing, seeing as their last mix-up in London, England, was a 44-7 abomination where Jaguars QB Blake Bortles threw for 244 yards and four touchdowns.
