In the final three weeks of the regular season, the Ravens will be fighting for home-field advantage in the AFC, but the key for this team going deep into the playoffs is getting a first-round bye.

Having home-field advantage is great, but a lot of teams are capable of winning on the road these days. The New Orleans Saints smacked around the Dallas Cowboys, in Irving, Texas, on Sunday night, and the Ravens beat up the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium earlier in the day.
