After losing to the New England Patriots, 41-7, on Sunday, the Ravens now need a little help if they want to reach the postseason.
In order to clinch the sixth and final playoff berth, the Ravens (8-7) need to defeat the AFC North division champion Cincinnati Bengals (10-5) in the regular-season finale and they need either the Miami Dolphins (8-7) to lose to the New York Jets or the San Diego Chargers (8-7) to lose to the Kansas City Chiefs.
If there's a three-way tie between the teams to finish the season, the Dolphins hold the edge because of their 7-4 conference record over the Ravens' 6-5 conference record and the Chargers' 5-6 mark.
The Ravens hold a head-to-head tiebreaker over the Dolphins due to a win over them in October at Miami.
Should the Ravens lose, they would need the Dolphins, Chargers and Steelers all to lose, creating a five-way tie that would include the Jets. The Ravens would then claim the final spot courtesy of the tiebreaker.
