LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — Perhaps jealous of the success of their Camden Yards neighbors, the Baltimore Orioles could spoil the Ravens’ Super Bowl celebration and Thursday Night Football season opener in September.

The Ravens say a previously scheduled Orioles game may force the national opener on September 5 to be played on the road. The O’s are currently scheduled to open a three-game series against the Chicago White Sox at 7:05 p.m. that evening.

It is a logistical nightmare to have dueling games at both M&T Bank Stadium and Oriole Park.

The Ravens say holding the contest on the road is the “least desirable” outcome.

The Ravens have made a couple of proposals to the Orioles, but none have been agreed upon according to Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and MLB commission Bud Selig have also to discuss the matter.

Zrebiec says the NFL will not announce an opponent for the Ravens opener until the matter is resolved.
