OWINGS MILLS, Md. – Now that they've finally wrapped up another AFC North crown, the Baltimore Ravens intend to get healthy, close out the regular season with a win and take some momentum into the playoffs.
Baltimore (10-5) snapped a three-game skid and clinched their second straight division title Sunday with a 33-14 rout of the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants. No matter what happens in this Sunday's finale against Cincinnati, the Ravens will host a first-round playoff game on Jan. 5 or 6.
But coach John Harbaugh won't let Baltimore coast into the postseason. He said Monday, "Our guys are going to play the game full speed to win."
If Baltimore wins and New England loses to Miami, the Ravens get a No. 3 seed and open the postseason against Cincinnati.
