Only one ticket to the Divisional Round is left up punched in the AFC, but where will the Baltimore Ravens be playing next week?
It finally happened: Lamar Jackson won a playoff game.
Jackson led the Ravens into Tennessee and exacted revenge for last year’s stunning upset loss at the hands of the very same Titans. That loss saw the Ravens season end in the AFC Divisional Round, a weekend Baltimore will return to thanks to getting through the Titans on the road.
The Ravens journey will continue on the road, regardless of what happens in tonight’s Browns-Steelers game. The Kansas City Chiefs await as the top seed in the AFC, and the Buffalo Bills advanced on Saturday to set up the AFC bracket so that it looks like it would in a normal season.
Both the top seeds advanced, but the Ravens are still alive and look capable of pulling off an upset against either. The only question left is, where will Baltimore be traveling to next weekend?
Now that the Ravens are through to the Divisional Round, let’s take a look at what lies ahead next week.
Updated AFC Playoff Bracket: Ravens advances to Divisional Round
Baltimore has finally bucked the narrative that Lamar Jackson can’t win in the postseason, but the work is far from over. The Ravens don’t know where they’re playing next week yet as that all hinges on what happened in the nightcap between the Browns and Steelers.
Here’s what the AFC Divisional Round will look like based on the two results we could see tonight:
If Browns Win:
- Kansas City Chiefs vs. Cleveland Browns
- Buffalo Bills vs. Baltimore Ravens
If Steelers Win:
- Kansas City Chiefs vs. Baltimore Ravens
- Buffalo Bills vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
