Ravens get No. 6 seed with victory and Chiefs win
The field of six is set for the AFC side of the NFL playoffs bracket.
The Ravens earned the final Wild Card spot on Sunday after getting a 20-10 victory over Cleveland, combined with the Chiefs defeating the Chargers 19-7. The Ravens received this fortune despite the Chiefs having to go with quarterback Chase Daniel instead of Alex Smith, who missed the game with a lacerated spleen.
It wasn't easy for Baltimore, which didn't turn things on offensively until the fourth quarter. Down 10-6 in the final period, Joe Flacco threw a jump ball deep down the field to Torrey Smith, who was in man coverage against Joe Haden. Smith came down with the ball for a 53-yard gain. On the next play, Flacco threw a 16-yard strike over the middle to Smith for a touchdown.
From there, the Ravens rolled and capped the day with a 2-yard touchdown to receiver Kamar Aiken and a game-clinching interception from Lardarius Webb.
The Ravens' first-round opponent has yet to be decided, and will be following Sunday's Broncos-Raiders and Bengals-Steelers games.
