The Ravens surpassed the Bills in terms of yardage and in many other respects last week. Meanwhile, the Bengals were also stellar against Indianapolis: they scored 17 points in the final quarter. Cincinnati running back Joe Mixon put on one of his strongest performances in recent memory. Andrew Luck turned the ball over twice and failed to make many long-pass attempts.

The Bengals and Ravens previously faced off in the 2017 regular season finale, which ended with Cincinnati winning in the final minute after Andy Dalton threw a 49-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Boyd on fourth-and-12. This allowed Buffalo to reach the playoffs for the first time since 2000.
