It’s a Christmas bonus for Ravens fans this year since the playoffs begin a week early. The season ending game versus the Raiders is a win or go home scenario so by all reasoning, the playoffs start on Sunday.


 

Statistically the Raiders really can’t compare to the Ravens, but beware of this team. While the Raiders don’t have many notches in the “W” column, they do have wins against quality teams which include the Eagles, Broncos, Steelers and Bengals.
