Ravens Told They May Take on the Jaguars in London in 2017

New York Giants v Los Angeles Rams

The Ravens have been informed by the NFL that they are under consideration to play a 2017 road game against the Jacksonville Jaguars at Wembley Stadium in London, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.

The arrangement makes sense, given the Ravens are scheduled to play the Jaguars and the rest of the AFC South in 2017, and they are one of only eight teams who have yet to play outside the United States since the International Series began in 2007.

The Jaguars, meanwhile, are in the middle of a deal with Wembley Stadium to play one home game a year there through 2020.

Per their deal with the Maryland Stadium Authority, the Ravens are not allowed to play a home game away from M&T Bank Stadium. But team officials have long said that they’d welcome playing a road game in London.

In a conference call with season-ticket holders last year, Bisciotti estimated that there was a 75 to 80 percent chance that the Ravens would play in London within the next four years.

“I would absolutely love going to London,” Bisciotti said on the call. “I think it would be great. Hopefully it would be the time of year that we could get a lot of fans over there, whether it [is] near Christmas or near Thanksgiving, or September when the weather is still beautiful, even in the U.K. I’m all for it. I think it would be a blast.”

The NFL has yet to announce what teams will play overseas in 2017. Last year, the league announced the schedule of international games for the following season in November.

Tucker’s Big Day Paces Ravens to 19-14 Win Over Bengals

Justin Tucker

One touchdown and Justin Tucker’s flawless right leg were enough to thrust the Ravens into a first-place tie in the AFC North.

Tucker kicked four field goals and Baltimore shut down the Bengals’ depleted offense Sunday in a 19-14 victory that put the resurgent Ravens back over .500.

Baltimore (6-5) has won three of four following a four-game losing streak.

Joe Flacco threw for 234 yards and a score to help the Ravens end a five-game skid against the Bengals (3-7-1), whose playoff hopes took another serious blow.

The victory was not assured until Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton fumbled when sacked by Elvis Dumervil, and defensive end Lawrence Guy recovered at the Baltimore 21 with 1:05 left and the Ravens up 19-12.

Ravens Fall to 5-5; Fall to Cowboys 27-17

Baltimore Ravens v Dallas Cowboys

Dak Prescott threw three touchdown passes, two to Dez Bryant, in the first game with Tony Romo as his backup, and the Dallas Cowboys set a franchise season record with their ninth straight win, beating the Baltimore Ravens 27-17 on Sunday.

The Cowboys (9-1) punted on their first four possessions — a first this season — against the NFL’s No. 1 defense. They marched 92 and 88 yards on their first two drives of the second half to break a 10-10 tie. Both drives ended with TD passes to Bryant , who had six catches for 80 yards.

Romo, who broke a bone in his back in a preseason game, was active for the first time since Thanksgiving last year, and was the Dallas backup for the first time in 10 years.
