The heroes of “Game of Thrones” aren’t the only ones gearing up for a new season of battles.
The Ravens on Sunday, ahead of the show’s season premiere, released a “Thrones”-themed video montage of players readying for the showdowns to come. Joe Flacco, Terrell Suggs, C.J. Mosley and Mike Wallace appear alongside shots of Daenerys Targaryen, Cersei Lannister and Jon Snow — and of course, flying ravens.
A voiceover parrots Petyr Baelish and Jon Snow’s words in earlier “Thrones” promos, telling the Ravens to fight every battle, everywhere, always “in your mind” and to unite against a common enemy that has “always been real.”
Though Snow and Baelish might have been talking about the noble houses of Westeros or those pesky White Walkers, the Ravens will be taking on enemies of their own this upcoming NFL season.
The video features footage of the Ravens tackling the Cincinnati Bengals, whom they will face in their first regular season game on Sept. 10.
Ravens training camp starts July 27.
