We can already hear Seven Nation Army being chanted from M&T Bank Stadium.
A playoff spot is on the line for the Ravens, and with a win Sunday against the Bengals, their playoff drought will come to an end.
The Ravens haven't see the postseason since 2014, and after a rocky start to the season, they find themselves in control of their own destiny.
The team is coming off of a 23-16 loss against the Indianapolis Colt, where the dominate Ravens defense made a late fourth quarter stop to keep their path to the playoffs simple.
The Ravens have won five out of their last six games and the success of the offense during the second half of the season has been slightly under the radar. Just ask former Ravens head coach and now NFL analyst, Brian Billick.
Can hear you all now: “But the #Ravens offense....”— Brian Billick (@CoachBillick) December 28, 2017
Oh, you mean the offense that has averaged nearly 30 PPG since week 8 while Flacco maintains the leagues longest active streak without an INT? That offense?

The 6-9 Bengals ended a three-game losing steak Christmas Eve in their 26-17 win against the Detroit Lions, eliminating them from the playoffs.
The last time the Ravens and Bengals saw one another was Week 1 in Cincinnati where the Ravens had their first of three shutouts this season.
While the Ravens season has trended upward, the Bengals season has remained dormant with wins against the Browns, Bills, Colts, Broncos and Lions.
According to NFL.com, they're ranked 28th in the league in points, 32nd in yards, 28th in passing yards and 31st in rushing yards.
Wide receiver AJ Green is still a threat though. He has 1,061 yards on the season with eight touchdowns.
However, their defense is showing slightly better stats ranking 15th in points allowed, 20th in yards allowed, 7th in passing yards allowed but 31st in rushing yards. Ravens running back Alex Collins has emerged as their No.1 running back, starting last week over Danny Woodhead, Buck Allen and Terrance West, and with lack of resources at WR, the Bengals defense should expect a heavy run game. Receiver Jeremy Maclin missed Week 16 with a knee injury and his return for their final regular season game is still questionable.
The Ravens and Bengals have met 43 times with the Ravens narrowly winning the series 22-21.
