It took four weeks of trying, but the Ravens are officially the AFC North champions.
Baltimore clinched the division title by routing the defending Super Bowl champion Giants, 33-14, on Sunday. In ending a three-game losing streak, the Ravens won back-t0-back division titles for the first time in their 17-year existence. This is the Ravens' fourth AFC North title (2003, 2006, 2011 and 2012).
The Ravens (10-5) still have something to play for in their final regular-season game at Cincinnati. Baltimore can move up from the No. 4 seed to the No. 3 spot if it beats the Bengals and the Patriots (11-4) lose at home to the Dolphins. The Ravens have the head-to-head tiebreaker over New England because of a 31-30 win over the Patriots in Week 3.
The final regular-season game is meaningless for the Bengals, who are locked into being the No. 6 seed. Even if Cincinnati (9-6) ties Indianapolis (10-5), the Bengals lose out on the common opponents tiebreaker.
