The Ravens are 7-3, and even after a 33-31 loss to the Browns in Week 10, they sit atop the AFC North, but that standing alone won’t create much separation, as three other division rivals are also currently in the postseason picture.
If the postseason started this weekend, the AFC North would be represented by three teams and the division winners from the AFC East, AFC West, and two AFC South teams.
Baltimore and Cincinnati are set for a high-profile matchup on Thursday night, and a loss would drop the Bengals to 5-5 on the season and down to as low as the 11th or 12th seed in the conference.
With the final day of preparation underway, here’s an updated look at the AFC playoff picture.
Kansas City Chiefs: 7-2 • 1st AFC West -- Week 11 matchup vs. Eagles 8-1
Baltimore Ravens: 7-3 • 1st AFC North --Week 11 Matchup vs. Bengals 5-4
Baltimore is still the top team in the division and second in the conference after a heartbreaking 33-31 loss to the Browns at M&T Bank Stadium this past Sunday.
