Who Ravens Fans Should Root for in Week 8


It's the midway point of the NFL season and the playoff race is starting to come into focus.

Here's who Ravens fans should be rooting for in Week 8:

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-3) at Cincinnati Bengals (4-3)
Sunday, 1 p.m.
The Bengals have lost two straight games and are coming off a 45-10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. The Bucs will give Cincinnati's defense another run for its money this week, as they're averaging a league-high 449.5 yards per game. The Bengals are one of the Ravens' chief adversaries in the playoff hunt.
Root for: Buccaneers

Philadelphia Eagles (3-4) at Jacksonville Jaguars (3-4)
Sunday, 9:30 a.m. in London
The defending Super Bowl champions blew a 17-point fourth-quarter lead against the Panthers last week. They're looking to get back on track against a Jaguars team that's lost three straight and has quarterback drama after benching Blake Bortles last week. Ravens fans want the Jags' slide to continue.
Root for: Eagles

New York Jets (3-4) at Chicago Bears (4-4)
Sunday, 1 p.m.
The Jets are still on the AFC playoff radar, but a loss to the Bears this week would put them behind the eight-ball. The Bears took the New England Patriots to the brink last week.
Root for: Bears

Cleveland Browns (2-4-1) at Pittsburgh Steelers (3-2-1)
Sunday, 1 p.m.
The Browns and Steelers tied in Week 1. A lot has changed since then, however. Baker Mayfield is under center for Cleveland, but Pittsburgh has gotten on a roll after a sluggish start and is coming off a bye. It would be nice for the Browns to pull off another upset.
Root for: Browns

Denver Broncos (3-4) at Kansas City Chiefs (6-1)
Sunday, 1 p.m.
The Chiefs are one of the best teams in the league and look destined for a postseason appearance. Meanwhile, the Ravens don't want the Broncos to get back in the playoff picture.
Root for: Chiefs
