See, it to them a goddam effort, but the Baltimore Ravens (10-3) went to sleep tight on Sunday night as the lone leaders of the AFC conference and the AFC North division by extension after beating the Los Angeles Rams 37-31 in an overtime Week 14 clash.
Superstar wideouts Cooper Kupp and Odell Beckham exchanged touchdowns early. Lamar Jackson found Zay Flowers after that and Isaiah Likely in the first quarter to put the Flock ahead. Matthew Stafford completed a touchdown to wideout Davis Allen and former Ravens wide receiver Demarcus Robinson.
Backup special teamer Tylan Wallace, mind you, was the actual game-breaking playmaker by scoring the walk-off, 76-yard punt return that ultimately secured the Ravens' win against the Rams inside The Bank.
Baltimore finds itself atop the AFC at least until the Miami Dolphins (9-3) play on Monday night, assuming they will beat the Titans to retake possession of the No. 1 seed albeit with the same record as the Ravens.
The Ravens are also holding a two-game lead in the AFC North with four games remaining and only one against a divisional foe, the season-finale in which they will go against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Browns are second in the AFC North with an 8-5 record followed by the Steelers and the Bengals, both at 7-6 through Week 14.
The Ravens' remaining schedule includes matchups against three divisional leaders including games at Jacksonville, at San Francisco, and vs. Miami before hosting the Steelers.
Per The Athletic's model, Baltimore has a 99.4 percent chance of making the playoffs as things stand through Sunday's results, with the Dolphins still left to play on Monday.
The Ravens also have a 33.6 percent chance of earning a bye (which would mean they end as the No. 1 team in the AFC standings) and a 13.4 percent chance of winning the Super Bowl.
