The Baltimore Ravens will take on the Las Vegas Raiders during Week 1 of the 2021 season. They’ll be under the bright lights of Monday Night Football, and will look to get off to a fast start in their quest to win a Super Bowl. There are plenty of things to look at when analyzing Baltimore’s Week 1 matchup. Some major storylines include the fact that the Ravens have been dealing with a plethora of injuries, while Las Vegas will be working with a very inexperienced offensive line.
The outcome of this matchup will be determined by a few factors. If the Ravens can control the time of possession battle effectively (much like they’ve done over the last few years), all signs will most likely point towards a Baltimore win. However, if Las Vegas can score a couple of quick touchdowns while forcing the Ravens’ offense to punt, Baltimore will have to dig themselves out of a hole against the Raiders.
