We’re live with one of the most important games of Week 18 as the Cincinnati Bengals host the division rival Baltimore Ravens.
We already know these two teams are headed to the playoffs, but we still don’t know who they’ll play — or where. Because of the canceled game between the Bengals and Bills, it’s possible that Cincinnati could win the AFC North and still have to travel to Baltimore for a first-round playoff game. Of course, that rule is all the Bengals have to do to avoid beating the Ravens, which would allow them to win the division outright and not have to worry about the coin toss that determines home field for the postseason.
Cincinnati will benefit from the Ravens’ backup quarterback, but we still don’t know which backup quarterback will take the field for Baltimore. Lamar Jackson is out, but Tyler Hundley is questionable and Anthony Brown has taken first-team snaps in practice all week. The starter’s sign will be the end of the game.
So, will the Ravens force a potential coin toss, or will the Bengals retain sole control of the division? We will find out soon. In the meantime, keep it locked to our live blog throughout the afternoon as we keep you updated with stats, scores and highlights.
