The Ravens have been reluctant to label Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals as must-win. At least not without some equivocation. Take cornerback Marlon Humphrey, who said Wednesday that the team thinks “every game is a must-win.”
But, he acknowledged, “when you come off three losses, you definitely know you definitely have to win.”
A fourth straight defeat would drop the Ravens to 4-6 with remaining games against the Kansas City Chiefs and the Los Angeles Chargers, two of the NFL’s best teams. With a win, they could conceivably hold the AFC’s second wild-card spot by the end of Sunday.
