Ravens vs. Bengals: Week 17 time, TV channel, live stream, how to watch

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.

Boom. Roasted.

RELATED: AFC PLAYOFF PICTURE PREDICTIONS 

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.

Baltimore Ravens' 2018 regular season matchups, dates and times

Baltimore Ravens' 2018 regular season matchups, dates and times

We've known the Ravens' 2018 preseason and regular season opponents for some time now, but the NFL finally released their full schedule with exact dates and times.

As they do every year, the Ravens will be seeing the Bengals, Steelers and Browns twice. 

For the ninth consecutive year, Week 16 and 17 will be divisional games with playoff implications.

The Ravens will also be playing in the Pro Football Hall of Fame preseason game against the Chicago Bears in Canton, Ohio, bringing an extra preseason game to their schedule.

In the regular season, the birds will be flocking south to take on the Panthers, Falcons and Titans. They haven't seen the Panthers or Falcons since 2014 - both ending in wins - and came up just short against the Titans in their 23-20 loss last season.

The Ravens will only have to travel to the west coast once when they take on the Los Angeles Chargers, who they last saw in 2015 and earned a 29-26 win.

Not including AFC North rivals, the last time the Ravens saw their remaining five home opponents they came away with wins. Hopefully history will repeat itself.

Prime-time games, which the Ravens have two of, will kick off at earlier times than in the past. Monday Night Football will now start at 8:15 p.m. while Thursday and Sunday Night Football will start at 8:20 p.m.

As 2018 NFL Draft approaches, Ravens to host QB Lamar Jackson per report

As 2018 NFL Draft approaches, Ravens to host QB Lamar Jackson per report

With 10 days until the 2018 NFL Draft, quarterback Lamar Jackson is set to visit the Ravens this week, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. 

The former Heisman Trophy winner is a projected first-round pick as he has proven to have success in the air and on the ground. 

While at Louisville, Jackson had 9,043 passing yards and 69 touchdowns. He also rushed for 4,132 yards and 50 touchdowns. His NFL draft profile compares him to Michael Vick.

The Ravens are in search of Joe Flacco's successor, but spending a first-round pick on a quarterback when there are other glaring needs is up in the air. However, assistant general manager Eric DeCosta isn't ruling out the possibility

"I feel like if there is a guy there that we think is really too good to pass up, we're going to take him," DeCosta told the team's website on the chance of drafting a quarterback in the first-round.

At their pre-draft press conference, GM Ozzie Newsome and DeCosta kept reiterating we could be surprised by who they pick at No. 16, if they do at all. 

While Jackson's numbers are impressive, he continues to be considered a late first-round pick as his build isn't up to typical NFL QB standards and scouts are concerned with his accuracy. What he does have in his favor is speed.

While fans are hoping for an offensive weapon, having Jackson learn under Flacco for a year (and maybe RGIII?) could rev up some excitement.
