Book those postseason plans, folks. For the third straight year, the Ravens have qualified for the playoffs.
They didn't deliver the clinching moment in spectacular fashion, by any means, holding off the Browns for a 20-10 win this afternoon.
But regardless of how it looked, it was effective. The Ravens got the win they needed, and have now punched their postseason ticket.
After allowing Browns running back Peyton Hillis to run for 144 yards and a touchdown back in September, the Ravens shut the door on the bruising back today, holding Hillis to 35 yards on 12 carries.
They wrapped Hillis up, did a good job gang-tackling him, and took away much of what the Browns wanted to do on the ground, forcing Cleveland to turn more to the passing game.
That strategy paid off as quarterback Colt McCoy tossed three interceptions, two of which were snagged by safety Ed Reed.
Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco's stat line won't wow anyone, but he got the job done, going 12-of-19 for 102 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.
Running back Ray Rice followed up his big game against the Saints with 92 rushing yards on 25 carries today, much of which came late in the game when the Ravens needed to milk time off the clock.
The Charm City faithful won't be talking about this game for years to come because of the quality of play, but they have every reason to celebrate the end result.
The Ravens are postseason bound yet again.
