Get ready for the Ed Garland Bowl.
According to a tweet from radio station WNST, ESPN’s Ron Jaworski says that his network has requested Steelers-Ravens for their opening Monday Night Football doubleheader next year. The game would be played in Baltimore.
The Steelers and Ravens have played a handful of classics over the last two years, but they have traditionally come late in the season.
Of course, requesting the game and getting the game isn’t the same thing.
Depending on what happens next in Ben Roethlisberger’s legal case, the league may not want to showcase a team led by Big Ben or Dennis Dixon on opening weekend.
