The Baltimore Ravens are 7-3 while already having their bye week in 2021. The Ravens were expected to be a contender this season but have suffered injury upon injury that has limited the team’s talent level and depth. Despite all of that, they have found ways to get victories while their Week 12 opponent, the Cleveland Browns, have found ways to lose similar games.
This week’s AFC North matchup could be the most important game in the division this year. A Browns win could boost their confidence going into the bye week and the rematch in Week 14. A Cleveland loss could send them into a spiral or major changes during their bye.
For Baltimore, who are fighting a number of injuries this week, Week 12 is a chance to try to put a nail in the coffin, at least for the AFC North, for one of their opponents. Cincinnati and Pittsburgh also have winning records this year.
In preparation, we looked back at the Ravens season so far to see how they won and lost games so far:
