Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is set to open his first full season as a starter close to where he grew up.

Jackson was born in South Florida and went to high school in Boynton Beach before moving on to Louisville. That high school is about an hour away from Hard Rock Stadium and that’s reportedly where Jackson will be for the opening weekend of the regular season.

Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post reports that the Ravens will face the Dolphins on the road to open up the season. The last meeting between the two teams was a 40-0 Ravens romp during the 2017 season.

The Dolphins will reportedly remain at home in Week Two for a game against head coach Brian Flores’ former employers. Jeff Howe of reports the Patriots will be in Miami for Week Two and their second meeting of the year is set for Week 17 in New England.

  1. I do not have a lot of high hopes for the season but The Patriots week two at home is good for me. The Patriots usually start the season slow and they always struggle in South Florida. Still, I would not be willing to put hard earned cash on the line. It should be an interesting game with a lot of good storylines.

  2. Ryan Fitz will be in full Johnny Unitas mode the first three-four weeks so he will give the Patriots trouble in week 2 and probably defeat them. Of course, by week 17, Ryan Fitz will be Ryan Fitz and expect a blowout loss from the Patriots second stringers. Bryan Hoyer will have four TDs.

  3. 0-2. The Ravens may not have the guns to take the AFC North but they have enough guns with which to pummel the Dolphins. Week 2 will be more of the same for the lowly Dolphins. I like the tank for Tua comment

  4. “the Patriots will be in Miami for Week Two and their second meeting of the year is set for Week 17 in New England”

    The league often seems to enjoy making the Pats play in the heat and the Fins play in the cold at each other’s stadiums. Fair enough, both teams play a game where they’re disadvantaged by weather they aren’t acclimated to.

  5. This is just TOO dumb. How ludicrous is it for the Pats and Dolphins to play in 95 degree heat before a half fill stadium because only the brain dead would sit for 4 hours in those conditions, only to force the Dolphins to play in winter conditions in December in NE.

    The teams AND fans would BOTH be the winners if they switched those 2 game, but this is the NFL and stupidity ALWAYS is the big winner

  6. 1-1 start for who? The Patriots or the Dolphins? A late afternoon start in September. Expect rain and humidity and boring football.
