Get ready for the most significant Thursday Night Football clash of the season to date as the Baltimore Ravens (7-3) go head-to-head with the Cincinnati Bengals (5-4) in a Week 11 showdown that promises everything from ugly AFC North football to a couple of top-5 quarterbacks doing their thing with a postseason berth (probably) on the line.
The Ravens, leading the division, could have easily boasted a 10-0 record if not for some closely contested but ultimately lost games. On the other side, the Bengals find themselves trailing in the division and must secure a win on Thursday night to avoid further complications and potentially missing on making the playoffs altogether.
Adding intrigue to the clash is the fact that these two teams met in Week 2, resulting in a closely fought game that saw the Flock invade the Jungle and get away with a resounding victory on the road. With the AFC North and postseason qualification potentially hanging in the balance, this clash takes on added significance.
The Bengals could either remain in contention for the No. 1 seed in the AFC North with a win or face steep odds at 5-5, virtually out of the division race and facing a challenging path to the playoffs. The Ravens could move to a solid 8-3 record with a win... or drop from the No. 1 seed in the division by the end of Sunday if they come out as the losers of this TNF matchup against the underperforming Bengals at the Bank.
