The National Football League announced today that the 2021 NFL Schedule powered by AWS will be released on NFL Network, NFL.com and the NFL app on Wednesday, May 12 at 8 p,m.

With the addition of the Los Angeles Rams as the 17th game, the Ravens now play six teams in the 2021 regular season that made the playoffs last year.

The NFL officially added the extra regular-season game this week and reduced the preseason from four to three games.

The Ravens will host the Rams in the extra game based on the formula set by the NFL that has the NFC West playing the AFC North. The Ravens and Rams were both second-place finishers in their divisions so they get matched up.

It adds another tough matchup to Baltimore's schedule that now has a half-dozen teams that made the playoffs in 2020:

  • Pittsburgh Steelers
  • Cleveland Brown
  • Kansas City Chiefs
  • Green Bay Packers
  • Indianapolis Colts
  • Los Angeles Rams

The Ravens other games are against the Cincinnati Bengals, Minnesota Vikings and Los Angeles Chargers. None of those teams made the postseason. 

Live streaming of NFL Network is available across multiple devices (smartphone, PC, tablet and connected TVs) through the NFL app or NFL.com/watch for subscribers of participating NFL Network providers.

NFL.com and the NFL app will provide complete team-by-team and weekly schedules of all regular-season games, listing opponents, sites and times.

The 2021 NFL season will feature each team playing 17 regular-season games and three preseason games for the first time, providing fans an extra week of regular-season NFL action. The 17th game will feature teams from opposing conferences that finished in the same place within their division the previous season, with the AFC as the home conference for the 17th game in 2021.
