On Sunday, the Baltimore Ravens will play the Cincinnati Bengals in their season-finale game at the M&T Bank Stadium. This would be the last regular season for both teams but only the Ravens have punched their ticket in the NFL Playoffs.
The Cincinnati Bengals could still play as spoilers on the playoff aspirations of the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens could end up in the wild-card game if they end up losing to the Bengals and the Steelers wins their last game. Bengals QB Carson Palmer is still a dangerous passer and could inflict serious damage to the Ravens defense.
The Ravens must still continue to play hard and physical against the Bengals. They must remain focus on the game at hand rather than concentrate their chance to draw a bye in the playoffs. If they win against the Bengals partnered with a Steelers' loss. Then, it's the only time they could celebrate their hard-earned AFC North title.
The sportsbook handicappers have installed the Baltimore Ravens as the 9.5-point favorite to beat the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday afternoon.
