Despite the fact that we're only in Week 15, the Ravens can still clinch a playoff spot this weekend.
Sorry, "Festivus" no longer applies in Baltimore.
At 9-4, the Ravens currently slot in as the No. 5 seed in the AFC playoff picture. They hold the head-to-head tiebreaker over the 9-4 Jets, and are two games up on the Colts, Chargers and Dolphins, all of whom trail in their respective division races.
Here are three scenarios in which the Ravens could lock up a Wild Card spot this weekend:
1) BAL win + IND loss or tie + SD loss or tie OR
2) BAL win + IND loss or tie + MIA loss or tie + KC loss OR
3) BAL tie + MIA loss or tie + SD loss + IND loss
There are other scenarios in which the Ravens can clinch a playoff spot if they clinch the strength of victory tiebreaker over certain teams this weekend.
The Colts will host the Jaguars Sunday in a crucial AFC South matchup, the Chargers take on the 49ers tomorrow night, the Dolphins will host the Bills, and the Chiefs will travel to St. Louis to face the Rams.
