Without Lamar Jackson, the Baltimore Ravens weren’t expected to give the Cincinnati Bengals much of a struggle Sunday night in their wild-card matchup. But things didn’t go as expected. The Bengals did pull through with a 24-17 victory to set up a divisional-round game against the Buffalo Bills, but it was much closer than anticipated. A 98-yard touchdown return of Tyler Huntley’s fumble at the goal line in the fourth quarter proved decisive. It’s never easy against divisional rivals, even when it’s supposed to be. The two AFC North teams met for the second straight week, and the Bengals beat a short-handed Ravens team to celebrate back-to-back division titles. Despite the Ravens playing without Jackson, Cincinnati was pushed to the brink at Paycor Stadium but survived. Some big plays from key players allowed the defending AFC champions to advance.
