Baltimore Sun staff report | December 28, 2011
The Bengals just announced that they've sold out Sunday's 4:15 p.m. game against the Ravens. It's just the second time this season they've had a sellout, according to reports. (The first was against the Steelers, with a lot of yellow-and-black clad fans getting credit for that sellout). You would like to think the reason for the sellout is that the playoffs are riding on this game. If the Bengals beat the Ravens, Cincinnati is a wild-card team. But more likely it's the 2-for-1 ticket promotion by the team and the begging by players and Coach Marvin Lewis that helped fill Paul Brown Stadium.

Some of the Ravens either didn't know or didn't care about all that needed to happen - at least not at that moment - for them to make the playoffs. A 34-point loss to one of your biggest rivals has a way of making everything else seem insignificant. Other players asked team officials or reporters about the various scenarios before concluding that the only thing that really mattered was beating the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. By the time the Ravens reported to the team facility Monday morning for meetings and film review, their path to the playoffs had been dissected and discussed.

On the final day of the 2011 regular season, the Ravens (11-4) travel to Cincinnati to take on the desperate Bengals (9-6), who can secure a playoff spot with a win Sunday. The Ravens have a lot at stake, too, with a victory giving them the AFC North title, a first-round bye playoff and two weeks rest for a handful of ailing players. Here are five storylines to follow Sunday as these division rivals play a must-win game (for different reasons): 1. Banged-up birds: The Week 16 win over the Cleveland Browns was a costly one for the Ravens.

The importance of what only a week ago was regarded as a routine game Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings has grown exponentially for the Cincinnati Bengals. After a 30-20 loss Sunday to the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Bengals (9-5) are clinging to a one-game lead over the Ravens (8-6) in the AFC North. They could lose their grip on the division with a defeat to the Vikings combined with a Ravens win over the New England Patriots on Sunday. The Bengals could also clinch a playoff berth with a win Sunday combined with a loss or tie by either the Ravens or Miami Dolphins (8-6)

With his 10-yard run late in the second quarter of the Ravens' 24-16 eventual win against the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday evening, running back Ricky Williams became the 26th player in NFL history to amass 10,000 rushing yards in a career. Williams, who carried the ball six times for 28 yards and has gained 10,009 yards in 11 years, is just one of three active players to have reached this achievement. (The New York Jets' LaDainian Tomlinson and the Kansas City Chiefs' Thomas Jones are the others.)

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green is dealing with a shoulder injury, but the rookie is expected to play Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium. Green didn't play against the Ravens in their 31-24 win over the Bengals last month, but the Ravens are wary of the challenge he will pose. Green leads all rookies with 63 receptions and 1,031 receiving yards, and his seven touchdown catches are tied with Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith for the most among rookies in 2011. “He's a monster, man. We have to know where he is every play on the field,” cornerback Lardarius Webb said.

When the Ravens visit Paul Brown Stadium Sunday, they will serve as a visible reminder of the Cincinnati Bengals' worst loss of the season. The Ravens walloped the Bengals, 44-13, in the first of two Monday night games on Sept. 10, one of two times this season that Cincinnati lost by 10 points or more. (The Cleveland Browns beat the Bengals, 34-24, on Oct. 21.) The 31-point rout was Cincinnati's worst result since Jan. 3, 2010 when the New York Jets beat them 37-0. That's why defensive tackle Geno Atkins didn't disagree with the notion that the 9-6 Bengals owe the 10-5 Ravens one. “Oh yeah,” Atkins said during a conference call with Baltimore media Wednesday.

The last time the Ravens visited Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati, they needed to beat the Bengals to clinch the AFC North title. And the Ravens did so courtesy of 191 rushing yards from running back Ray Rice. So with the Ravens poised to return to Cincinnati again this Sunday, Rice relived the fond memories of that performance. “I definitely remember it,” said Rice, who earned his third Pro Bowl invitation in the last four seasons. “It was a great way to finish the year.

CINCINNATI - When the lingering smoke from a pre-game fireworks display finally lifted moments before kickoff, a new era dawned at Paul Brown Stadium yesterday. The sorry, ramshackle Cincinnati Bengals had vacated the premises. In their place was the braggadocio of Chad Johnson, the big-play ability of Peter Warrick, the inspiration of Rudi Johnson and the resiliency of a gritty defense. Meet the team that Marvin Lewis built. Introductions were in order after the Bengals terminated the Kansas City Chiefs' run at a perfect season with a hard-earned, 24-19 upset, handing Kansas City (9-1)

All season, the Ravens talked about peaking at the right time. They downplayed their 9-2 start, maintaining that a strong finish to the regular season was what was important. They didn't want to just make the playoffs. They wanted to enter them with momentum, their offense putting up points and their defense putting down quarterbacks. Before walking out of the visiting locker room at Paul Brown Stadium on Sunday following a 23-17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals to end the regular season, the Ravens were singing a decidedly different tune.

It took just one big turnaround performance by the Ravens - and the fact that they finally clinched the AFC North title - to spawn a debate over how they should approach their final regular-season game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Should they go all out to win on the off chance that the New England Patriots lose a home game against the Miami Dolphins and squander the No. 3 conference playoff seed? Or should they take the pedal off the metal and try to make sure they are as healthy as possible for their home playoff opener the following weekend?

If Ravens fans want to make a trip to Indianapolis at the end of this season, they might want to stop in Cincinnati on the way. The road to the Super Bowl goes through the Queen City this weekend, and it wouldn't hurt if an extra-large purple-and-black entourage went along to make sure the Ravens feel more at home at Paul Brown Stadium. Tickets shouldn't be hard to find. I think they're giving them away in cereal boxes these days. The Bengals have had so much trouble filling their house that six of their seven home games this season had to be blacked out on local TV. The game Saturday against the Arizona Cardinals drew just an announced 41,373 to a stadium that holds 65,535.

CINCINNATI - The Cincinnati Bengals' 1-7 record this season is nothing new. They've started 1-7 or worse six times in the past 12 seasons. But this year has been the worst in memory off the field for the franchise and its embattled patriarch, club president Mike Brown. Anger and resentment toward the Bengals in Cincinnati are at all-time highs, and most of it is directed at Brown. The disgust has taken the forms of an online petition seeking to oust Brown as the team's de facto general manager, anti-Brown T-shirts, a long-shot breach-of-contract legal challenge to the Bengals' lease on Paul Brown Stadium and declining attendance at games.

"You just have to take it all in.

The banner stands about 70 feet high behind the far goal posts at the Ravens' indoor practice facility. Outlined in purple and black, a replica of the Lombardi Trophy looms overhead, serving as a daily reminder of what the Ravens are perennially after. The real thing won't be presented for another five weeks, but to a man, the Ravens say that their run to that elusive second Super Bowl trophy starts Sunday afternoon when they face the Cincinnati Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium in one of the bigger regular-season finales in team history.
