How Baltimore Reached the Divisional Round

  • Wild Card Round: Beat the Titans, 20-13
  • Regular-Season Record: 11-5

Tommy Stokke: The Ravens raced out to a 5-1 start despite Lamar Jackson looking less than his 2019 MVP self early on, but a string of three midseason losses and a 6-5 record had Baltimore bettors asking what went wrong?

Jackson missed one of those games, though, and the schedule softened at the right time: The Ravens closed the regular season on a five-win streak against the Cowboys, Browns, Jaguars, Giants and Bengals.

How Buffalo Reached the Divisional Round

  • Wild Card Round: Beat the Colts, 27-24
  • Regular-Season Record: 13-3

Stokke: What a leap the Bills’ offense has taken in 2020.

This is no defense-first team anymore. Offensive coordinator Brian Daboll unleashed Josh Allen and an offense that is near the top of the NFL in most major categories. The result was an AFC East championship and real belief in a postseason run.

Allen — always knocked for his accuracy — saw an 11% improvement in completion percentage that took him up to 69%. He threw for more than 1,200 more yards than in 2019, and his interception rate dropped this year. Also, Stefon Diggs has been his perfect match. In Diggs’ first year with Buffalo, the former Vikings receiver led the NFL in receiving yards.

All of that added up to a sterling 11-5 record against the spread in the regular season, and now their second home game of the postseason.
