By Jamison Hensley
The Baltimore Ravens can celebrate more than a win over their division rival if they beat the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.
According to the NFL, the Ravens can clinch the AFC North for a second straight season if they beat the Steelers and the Bengals lose at San Diego. Under that scenario, the Ravens would have a four-game lead over the Steelers and Bengals with four games remaining.
Baltimore can secure a playoff spot for a fifth consecutive season with a win over Pittsburgh. The Ravens also can earn a postseason berth if they tie the Steelers along with a Bengals loss and a Dolphins loss or tie.
