How to watch Ravens vs. Bengals wild card game originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

It’s an AFC North showdown in the wild card round on Sunday.

The Cincinnati Bengals (12-4) will welcome back the Baltimore Ravens (10-7) a week after hosting them in a 27-16 Week 18 win. 

Baltimore narrowly won the Week 5 matchup 19-17 in a game that featured Lamar Jackson, but the star Ravens quarterback has not played since Dec. 4 with a knee injury. 

Will Jackson return to bolster Baltimore’s chances? Or will Joe Burrow and the lethal Bengals aerial attack mount their revenge to the Super Bowl?

Is Lamar Jackson playing in the wild card round?

Jackson has a chance at returning for the Bengals game on Sunday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported, but is said to be experiencing swelling in his knee still. It’s looking like it’ll come down to a game-time decision. 

Backup QB Tyler Huntley is also questionable with right shoulder/wrist injuries, which could put third-string option Anthony Brown back under center. In Week 18’s loss, Brown completed 19 of 44 passes for 286 yards, no touchdowns and two picks, posting a meager 6.1 quarterback rating.

What is the weather forecast for Ravens vs. Bengals?

Temperatures on Sunday at Paycor Stadium in Cincinnati, Ohio are expected to reach a high of 47 degrees Fahrenheit with partly-to-mostly cloudy skies, according to NBC Chicago. Winds will travel south at 5-to-10 mph.
