The Baltimore Ravens will play their opening game of the 2021 season against the Las Vegas Raiders on “Monday Night Football”. Baltimore has waited a long time to play meaningful football again, and seem motivated to achieve many of their goals this year.
For the Ravens, playing Las Vegas will be no cakewalk. They’ll have to be at the top of their game for 60 minutes, and although the team has been extremely dominant in Week 1 over the last four years (outscoring opponents 164-19), the Raiders have weapons on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball.
