Game time for Ravens’ AFC divisional-round matchup announced

After posting the NFL’s best regular-season record, the Ravens will open the playoffs in prime time.

The AFC’s No. 1 seed will host a divisional-round game at 8:15 p.m. on Jan. 11, a Saturday, the league announced Sunday night. The Ravens (14-2) will face the lowest-seeded AFC team still remaining after next weekend’s wild-card round, meaning the Ravens will avoid an early rematch against the third-seeded and defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots.
