Ray Lewis is gone.

But as he told Joe Flacco before the Ravens' thrilling double-overtime road playoff win in Denver, "You're the General, lead us to victory, you lead us today."

Flacco is the leader of the Ravens. They are an offensive team now. However you slice it, Baltimore secured a legitimate franchise-quarterback at a very friendly cap figure ($6.8 million in 2013).

They also got younger and more talented along their defensive front (which struggled often in 2012) with the signings of Elvis Dumervil, Chris Canty, Marcus Spears and Rolando McClain. According to spotrac.com, the total 2013 cap hit between those four players is $6,306,667.

In case you don't live in Baltimore, yes, there were and still are plenty of haters and doubters that simultaneously claim to be Ravens fans. Apparently they forgot about Ozzie Newsome and his player personnel staff.

Now that the 2013 regular season schedule has been released, let us look there.

The Ravens will play a total of seven games against 2012 playoff teams. That doesn't include their two games against Pittsburgh and road games against Chicago and Detroit.

They will also play just one home game between Weeks 4 and 9. However, they were awarded a rare three-game homestand, between Weeks 12 and 14.

Clearly, the Ravens have their work cut out for them in this season. Here's a look at which games could give them the most trouble.
