Ravens' playoff scenarios heading into Week 13 vs. Dolphins

Ravens' playoff scenarios heading into Week 13 vs. Dolphins

The Ravens enter their Week 13 game with the Dolphins in a position few thought possible following a four-game losing streak.

But thanks to a wild season in the AFC North, the Ravens have both righted the ship and watched the rest of the division go up in flames.

But what does the Ravens' playoff scenario look like heading into Week 13? 

Here is what we know:

RELATED: NFL PLAYOFF SCENARIOS HEADING INTO WEEK 13

The Ravens are sitting atop the AFC North with a 6-5 record having beaten the Steelers (6-5) head-to-head in Week 9 and if the playoffs began today, would be the #3 seed in the AFC.

However, it's highly unlikely that the Ravens would be a Wild Card with three non-division leading teams (KC, DEN, MIA) ahead of them in overall record and a loss to the Raiders in Week 4. That makes this week's game against the Dolphins (7-4) ultra-important.

Surprisingly enough, the Ravens actually have a 58-percent chance of missing the playoffs right now based on likely needing to win their division to make the playoffs and having a fairly tough schedule the rest of the way, according to PlayoffStatus.com.

The best-case scenario for the Ravens in Week 13 is to beat the Dolphin and have the Giants beat the Steelers and the Rams beat the Patriots, as the Ravens plays at New England in Week 14 and could jump the Patriots in the standings with a win. 

If that best-case scenario happens, the Ravens' playoff chances go from 42 percent to 61 percent. 

If the reverse occurs, the Ravens might be in trouble with only 22-percent chance of making the playoffs.

The Ravens are in a good spot right now, but with five games left on the schedule, a lot can change in just a matter of moments.

According to Ravens media, Scott has been a big playmaker at OTAs and mandatory minicamp and is looking forward to the start of training camp. “I think I had a great practice to end minicamp, and now I’m going to get ready for the start of training camp,” Scott said to Ravens media. “I want to show people I can be a deep threat, that I can make big plays and do things in the red zone, help us score points. That’s my goal.”

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Michael Pierce responds to last week's dismissal from practice

Kick off your Monday with the latest Baltimore Ravens news.

1. Last week, defensive tackle Michael Pierce was dismissed from practice after showing up in "less than ideal shape" according to The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec. Pierce joined WSNP-FM 105.5 Friday where he responded to being dismissed from practice. “Throughout the offseason, I tend to lift more than run,” Pierce said. “Being a nose guard, I want to be strong or what not. I, honestly, just mismanaged my running a little bit.”

2. On the other hand, tight end Mark Andrews looks "bigger, faster and stronger" Zrebiec said. Andrews had a standout year last season as a rookie with three touchdowns and 34 catches for 552 yards. Zrebiec said Andrews has not slowed down and will be an even bigger asset to the Ravens offense this season.
