The Ravens will begin their playoff march to Super Bowl LIV in prime time.
After finishing a franchise-record 14-2 regular season with a 28-10 win over Pittsburgh on Sunday, top-seed Baltimore will host an AFC divisional-round tilt at M&T Bank Stadium on Saturday, Jan. 11 at 8:15 p.m., a game that will be televised on CBS. The Ravens will play the lowest remaining seed of Houston, Buffalo, or Tennessee, who will all compete in the AFC wild-card round this Saturday.
This marks the first time since the 2011 postseason that the AFC North champion Ravens will host a divisional-round game after enjoying a first-round bye for just the third time in team history. The Ravens won their only playoff meeting with the Texans in the 2011 postseason and are 2-1 in playoff encounters with the Titans, an old AFC Central rival. Baltimore has never faced the Bills in the playoffs.
A win in the divisional round would allow the Ravens to host the AFC Championship game for the first time in franchise history. The city of Baltimore last hosted the conference championship game on Jan. 3, 1971 when the Colts defeated Oakland at Memorial Stadium on their way to winning Super Bowl V.
After securing the No. 1 seed in the AFC and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs for the first time in team history, the Ravens will aim to win their third Super Bowl in their 24-year history.
