Wild Card Playoffs - Indianapolis Colts v Baltimore Ravens Photo by Patrick Smith/Getty Images

The Baltimore Ravens host the Indianapolis Colts in a matchup that means far more to the Ravens than it does the Colts. Baltimore is fighting for their playoff lives while Indy turns their eyes to the draft. Will Baltimore move closer to the Wild Card? Can Indy make this one interesting? Let’s tune in and find out!

John Harbaugh’s squad currently sits 7th in the AFC Playoff picture, with the Bills, Titans, and Chiefs all ahead of them in the seeding with a similar record.

This is the 15th meeting between the two, dating back to 1996. The Ravens are 4-4 at home against the Colts, with Indianapolis leading the all-time series 10-4. Baltimore has won the last two at M&T Bank Stadium, which included a 24-9 Wild Card victory in the 2012 playoffs.

While Baltimore is having success, it’s been anything but that for Indy. They’ve lost five straight, with their last victory coming against the Houston Texans in 20-14 road win. Andrew Luck’s absence has clearly been felt, and his future (much like the Colts) is very much in question.
