With the NFL regular season fast approaching, we at SportsUntapped are taking our crystal balls out of storage and examining each team’s full 16-game schedule to prognosticate how the 2011 season will play out. We’ll look at all 32 teams and reveal each one’s final record. Next up: Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens.

Baltimore Ravens

Last year’s record: 12-4.

Vegas Over/Under on 2011 Regular Season Wins: 10.5.

First four games:
Sept. 11 Pittsburgh, 1 p.m.
Sept. 18 at Tennessee, 1 p.m.
Sept. 25 at St. Louis, 4:05 p.m.
Oct. 2 N.Y. Jets, 8:20 p.m.

The Ravens start with their biggest rivals at home in Week 1, then have two fairly easy road games before welcoming Rex Ryan and the Jets in Week 4. They’ll probably win one of two at home and be 3-1 after four games.

Second four games:
Oct. 9 BYE
Oct. 16 Houston, 4:05 p.m.
Oct. 24 at Jacksonville, 8:30 p.m.
Oct. 30 Arizona, 1 p.m.
Nov. 6 at Pittsburgh, 8:20 p.m.

The Texans might give the Ravens a little trouble, but the Jaguars and Cardinals should be easy wins before their final regular season meeting with the Steelers. This looks like another three wins and a 6-2 midseason record.

First four games of the second half:

Nov. 13 at Seattle, 4:05 p.m.
Nov. 20 Cincinnati, 1 p.m.
Nov. 24 San Francisco, 8:20 p.m.
Dec. 4 at Cleveland, 1 p.m.

Four wins here are a definite possibility, but either of the road games could be a trap, so we’ll go with three and a 9-3 mark through 12 games.

Last four games:

Dec. 11 Indianapolis, 1 p.m.
Dec. 18 at San Diego, 8:20 p.m.-x
Dec. 24 Cleveland, 1 p.m.
Jan. 1 at Cincinnati, 1 p.m.

Baltimore’s two toughest games in the second half look like the Colts and Chargers, but they should win at least one of those before beating up on the Browns and Bengals to end the season 12-4, with a tiebreaker again deciding the AFC North.
