So the Baltimore Ravens get another primetime game? They were on Sunday Night Football hosting the New England Patriots on NBC. They opened the season on ESPN’s Monday Night Football in Week 1. And to open Week 4, they host the Cleveland Browns on Thursday Night Football. So three primetime games in four weeks and two within five days. Crazy schedule.
NFL Network will air this Thursday’s game with Brad Nessler and Mike Mayock on the call. Alex Flanagan will be on the sidelines.
We have the particulars of what you’ll see on NFL Network this Thursday from Baltimore as the Ravens host the Browns.
