The Ravens sit atop the AFC through 11 weeks after the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Kansas City Chiefs on "Monday Night Football."
At 8-3, Baltimore sits a half-game ahead of the Chiefs, Jacksonville Jaguars, Miami Dolphins, and Cleveland Browns, who are all 7-3.
The Ravens aren't in the driver's seat for the top playoff seed yet, however. If they and the Chiefs both won out, Kansas City would get the No. 1 seed because of a conference record tiebreaker.
Here's the remaining schedule for the two teams:
According to ESPN Analytics, the Ravens have a 96% chance of making the playoffs, but just a 19% chance of retaining the top seed, which comes with a first-round bye and homefield advantage. The Chiefs still have better odds at that (41%).
ESPN's power football index has the Ravens with the third-toughest strength of schedule remaining. The Ravens' remaining opponents are currently 35-25.
The other AFC playoff contenders right behind Baltimore have easier paths down the stretch in terms of strength of schedule: Dolphins (14), Chiefs (19), Jaguars (22), Browns (23).
Asked Monday whether he was concerned with the Los Angeles Chargers (4-6) being desperate for a win this Sunday night against the Ravens, Head Coach John Harbaugh pushed back on that narrative.
"No, we're desperate for a win," Harbaugh said. "We're 100% desperate for a win. That's what we're focusing on."
