The Bengals and Ravens will meet in Week 17 in what could be a preview of an AFC wildcard matchup.
The Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals will meet in the final week of the regular season with both teams already guaranteed postseason play. The Ravens have already clinched the AFC North, while the Bengals' victory over the Steelers in Week 16 assured they will be playing in the new year.
By winning the AFC North, the Ravens are assured at worst the No. 4 seed and a home game in the playoffs. A win combined with a Patriots loss on Sunday would see them improve to the No. 3 seed, and set up a Week 17 rematch with the Bengals.
After clinching a playoff berth in Week 16, the Bengals have nothing left to play for. They are locked into the No. 6 seed already, meaning this will be the last time Paul Brown Stadium hosts a game this season. However deep the Bengals make it in the postseason, all of their games will be on the road.
