After Week 15’s loss to the Green Bay Packers, the Baltimore Ravens’ odds of winning the division have plummeted.

According to WynnBET, the Ravens now have the second-best odds of topping the AFC North, with the moneyline set at +150. The Cincinnati Bengals jumped into first place, with +135 odds to win the division.

The odds remain close, and knowing the AFC North, anything could happen. The Bengals could end up at the bottom of the division by Week 18, as could the Ravens or any other team in the division.

But losing to the Packers has nonetheless hurt Baltimore’s chances of winning first in the AFC North as well as making it to the postseason.

Once the steady favorites to win the division, the Ravens now enter a high-stakes stretch of the season in which pretty much every game is a must-win.

Especially Week 16 against none other than the Bengals.

Despite being hammered by injuries week after week, there are good reasons the Ravens can still find ways to win their final three games.

Tight end Mark Andrews has been enjoying a record-breaking year, and his presence is continually felt every game. Against Green Bay, Andrews dominated with two scores and a team-leading 136 receiving yards.

Baltimore has two very capable quarterbacks in Lamar Jackson and Tyler Huntley, not to mention a stellar coaching staff headed by John Harbaugh.

For all the flack he’s gotten for his failed two-point conversion attempts, Harbaugh remains an inspiring leader for the team. He reportedly went around asking the team if they wanted to go for two in the Packers game, and players replied with a resounding yes.

Will good coaching, decent offensive production, and a shaky defense get the Ravens to the playoffs in 2021?
