Week 14: Vikings at Baltimore

  • December 1, 2013 - 10:11 PM

NEXT OPPONENT: BALTIMORE (6-6)

The Super Bowl champions are fighting for a playoff berth. The Ravens trail Cincinnati by two games in the AFC North but are in the wild-card hunt.

OPPONENT WEEK 13

Ravens 22, Steelers 20

The Thanksgiving nightcap went to Baltimore when visiting Pittsburgh failed on a two-point conversion with a minute remaining. Justin Tucker kicked five field goals for the Ravens; the longest was 48 yards.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR

Joe Flacco, quarterback

A great playoff run earned Flacco a six-year, $120.6 million contract, but he has struggled this season. His 78.5 quarterback rating is only slightly better than Christian Ponder’s. He has 15 TD passes and 14 interceptions.

OUTLOOK

The Ravens are in a playoff push. The Vikings are 1-4-1 in outdoor games, with the only win in London. Baltimore gets the slight edge here. Outlook: Horns down.
