The Ravens will have to open up the 2013 NFL season on the road because of a scheduling conflict with the Baltimore Orioles, and the NFL couldn’t be happier with the opponent or location. Yahoo Sports is reporting that the Ravens will travel to Denver to battle the Broncos and Peyton Manning to kickoff the regular season on Thursday September 5. Since 2002 the winner of the Super Bowl has been given the honor of opening the regular season at home and in primetime. That will not happen for the first time in 11 years because of a scheduling conflict with the Orioles. The Ravens and Broncos split their two meetings during the 2012 regular and post-season. The Broncos dominated the Ravens 34-17 in Baltimore on Dec. 16, and  the Ravens would get their revenge with a 38-35 double overtime win over Denver in the divisional round of the AFC playoffs on Jan. 12. We all remember Jacoby Jones getting behind the Broncos secondary to haul in the 70 yard touchdown that forced overtime.
