Poll: Will Ravens Make The Playoffs?

Posted Dec 24, 2013

The Ravens need some help to make the playoffs for the sixth straight season.


Since John Harbaugh and Joe Flacco arrived in Baltimore, all the Ravens have known is playoff football.

The Ravens have made the postseason in five straight years, the longest active streak in the NFL. They have also won a game on all of those postseason trips, making Flacco the first NFL quarterback to win at least one playoff game in each of his first five years.

But now those streaks are in jeopardy as the Ravens head into a Week 17 matchup against the AFC North rival Cincinnati Bengals and need help with getting back to the playoffs.

“The whole time up until now has been, ‘Handle your business and everything will be alright,’” outside linebacker Terrell Suggs said. “We let one get away, but we have next week. Thank God for next week.”

The most likely scenario for the Ravens to make the playoffs is to beat the Bengals and hope for the Jets to beat the Dolphins, or the Chiefs to beat the Chargers. If the Ravens win and either the Dolphins or Chargers lose, then Baltimore is headed back to the playoffs as the AFC’s No. 6 seed.

“We still have an opportunity at the postseason, so that’s what we’re going to focus on,” defensive end Chris Canty said.  “We’ve got to have a great week of preparation and give ourselves the best chance to be successful in Cincinnati.”

The Bengals (10-5) have already clinched the AFC North title, but they still have a chance at getting the AFC’s No. 2 seed, so it’s unlikely for them to rest starters in the finale. The Bengals are undefeated at home this year, but the Ravens did beat them 20-17 in Week 10 at M&T Bank Stadium.

Do you think the Ravens will make the playoffs for the sixth-straight year?
