    How do they know that? I always thought division seeding played a role in deciding home and away games?

    Seeding outside of the division matters only. For example we are scheduled to play one afc west team next year on the road. Assuming we finish first in our division then we simply play the first place finisher in the AFC west. FWIW most opponents are already figured out. Its opponents outside of our division but within the conference that have yet to be determined hence the seeding formula

    As long as it isn't a home game I could care less where they play.

    Ravens would raise holy hell if it was a home date, so that would never happen.

    I do not want the Ravens in London for any reason. It's far worse than a West Coast trip and can have lingering affects which could have ramifications on the game after the London trip.

    Let teams like the Jags, TB and Buffalo go over their.

    I could be wrong, but I think the teams that play usually have a bye the following week.

    Re: Ravens potentially in London next year

    Bisciotti is very keen to do it

    And Ravens wouldn't be well known this side on the pond.
    Not even close to the same level as the niners, Bears, Dolphins, Patriots and yes of course the Cowboys.

    Baltimore would most well known for The Wire!

    It'll happen at some stage, Bisciotti wants to grow the brand

    But not a home game and realy there are plenty of teams struggling to sell tickets, they will be the home team.
    Dolphins will be over for sure at some stage again

    Per the NFL, the Vikings will host a 2nd London game in 2013. Next year is the AFC North's turn to play the NFC North. Now this is speculation on my part but I would assume the Vikings would prefer to play a non-divisional game and more then likely a non-conference game. If my assumptions are correct then it would be one of the four AFC North games they have, meaning a 25% chance of playing there next year. Bad news for us in the states but potentially great news for our fellow Brit Raven fans there.
    Born in England here and have most of my family over there. Moved to the states when I was 1 y.o so as American as they come but if the Ravens play in England you can bet your ass I will be there .... Have a relative that manage a rather large hotel in London (Hilton Brand) and will be happy to hook people up with dynamite rates if this comes to pass....

    Will keep that in mind!!

    Flight still has to be a ton of money to get there I would imagine.

    Re: Ravens potentially in London next year

    I'd be up for it, & I hardly ever get to games here. I usually get over to Yerp in the late summer or fall to visit friends anyway, & London's a great jumping-off place for a vacation--cheap flights to many cities on the Continent. A weekend at the beginning or end sounds just peachy!

    It's the Steelers, according to JLC.

    So the Steelers drew the short straw and have to make the 7 hour flight over and 8.5 hour flight back.

    I have no problem with the Ravens playing there but it does take a toll. It is usually a home game before the trip and a bye after the trip.

    Who is the other team hosting a game there?
