- REPORT: RAVENS TO OPEN IN DENVER FOR 2013 KICKOFF -
 
The 2013 NFL schedule is set to be released tonight at 8 p.m. ET, but the first game of the season won’t be in Baltimore, as we all thought it would be due to the fact that the Super Bowl champions traditionally host the opening game of the new season. Instead the Ravens will travel to Denver and play the Broncos for the 2013 Kickoff game, according to CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. The Ravens can’t open the season at M&T Bank Stadium because the Orioles have a home game scheduled at Oriole Park on Thursday night, Sept. 5. Since the two teams share parking lots, there’s no way both games can be played at the same time and Major League Baseball was not willing to reschedule the O’s game. But this Kickoff game should be a great one. It has plenty of storylines to build on. The last time these two team met were in the AFC divisional playoff game. Just as it seemed the Broncos were on their way to the AFC Championship game, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco hit Jacoby Jones for a deep pass that gave the Ravens the go-ahead score. Also this game will be the defensive end Elvis Dumervil’s first time playing against his old teammates since leaving Denver to go play in Baltimore (insert “Fax“ joke). This is the most logical and best way for the season to open. It’s not fair for the Ravens to have to open on the road, but it’s awesome that the fans get to see a great game kickoff the 2013 season.
