It's Win-and-In weekend for the 10-3 Baltimore Ravens, fam! Following the early games played on Saturday as part of Week 15 of the regular season, the Ravens only need one more win throughout the remainder of the year to clinch a postseason berth, one they can get today in Jacksonville.
The Jacksonville Jaguars (8-5) will host the Ravens at EverBank Stadium for a Sunday Night Football matchup that will cap a weekend in which the Floridians need to break a two-game losing streak if they don't want to enter very dangerous territory after Indianapolis' win yesterday and pending the Houston Texans' outcome today.
Anyway, for what matters here, the Ravens are in the lead of the AFC North with a 2.5-game distance over no. 2 Cleveland (they play today) and a 3-game gap over no. 3 Cincinnati (they won on Saturday).
One more win and Baltimore would secure (at the very least) a place in the AFC wild-card game next mid-January. Let's go get it!
Ravens vs. Jaguars Week 15: All you need to know
When and where
Just a few days ago, things weren't looking very good for the Ravens as they entered the weekend and the home stretch of the season facing the toughest schedule in the league, one including trips to Jacksonville and San Francisco, as well as the reception of Miami and Pittsburgh. Ah, how things changed in a matter of hours...
The Ravens will visit Jacksonville tonight for an SNF matchup in which a win would already put Baltimore in the postseason. Even if they lose, they will still have three more attempts at that, and it's fair to assume they will at least win one of the next four games, won't they?
For now, Ravens and Jaguars will go against each other at EverBank Stadium in Jacksonville on Sunday at 8:20 p.m. ET (6:20 p.m. PT for those on the West Coast; 2:20 p.m. CET for those in Europe), the first and only time they'll meet this season following their matchup last year in which Jacksonville went away with a miraculous come-from-behind late win.
The forecast for Sunday at kick-off time in Jacksonville, according to AccuWeather, predicts 56 degrees with clear skies. That said, and although there is no rain expected by the time the ball gets flying, the wind is going to factor into the outcome of this game a ton coming at W 16 mph with gusts at 30 mph. Kickers, better load and adjust those legs properly!
The Ravens are entering Week 15 nearly with a clean bill of health after not ruling out anyone for Sunday's matchup but carrying a couple of players "questionable" to appear on SNF: safety Kyle Hamilton and outside linebacker Malik Hamm.
Now, mind you, the latter of the two was "unofficially officially" ruled out for the game because the Ravens decided to not activate him ahead of Saturday's deadline. Instead, the Flock has called up Jeremiah Moon, leaving Hamm in limbo following his designation for returning from IR and a few days left in the 21-day window for that to happen.
The Jaguars are in a much more precarious position entering Week 15 when it comes to the players they will be missing on Sunday. Jacksonville ruled out two defensive backs for this game, and two key starters at it: cornerback Tyson Campbell and safety Andre Cisco.
On top of those two dudes being ruled out, left tackle Walker Little, left guard Ezra Cleveland, tight end Brenton Strange, long snapper Ross Matiscik, return man Jamal Agnew, cornerback Christian Braswell, and nickel Tre Herndon were listed as "questionable" to play by Jacksonville.
It's worth noting that while quarterback Trevor Lawrence practiced in full all week long, he's coming off an injury scare suffered in Week 13 less than two weeks ago that might be impacting his game. He seems to have recovered by now, but we'll see how fit he is and whether or not he can last the full 60 minutes on the field.
