Baltimore Ravens vs Washington Redskins takes place on Sunday in the NFL in an intriguing match up between these AFC-NFC rivals. The Ravens will be looking to take a big step towards claiming the divisional title with a win today, where as the Redskins will be looking to maintain their revival and push for the playoffs. The game is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
The Ravens are currently topping the AFC North with an impressive 9-3 record. However, the division is not theirs yet and they are being chased fiercely by both the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cincinnati Bengals, who are both on 7-5. With the regular season winding up towards the final straight, a win today would go a long way to capturing the divisional title for the Ravens.
However, they will have to get past a revived Redskins team this week. A month back the Redskins were seriously struggling but they have pulled things back level to 6-6 and are just a game out from NFC East division leaders, the New York Giants on 7-5.
That revival has, in a large part, been sparked by Redskins' quarterback Robert Griffin III. He has been unstoppable in recent weeks, and his partnership with receiver Pierre Garcon is enough to worry even the best defenses in the NFL.
Over recent seasons the Ravens have been used to winning the rivalry against its close neighbor. The Ravens have made the playoffs in each of the last four seasons, where as the Redskins have often pushed but have ultimately fallen short of the achievements made at Baltimore.
However, this season the Redskins have more swagger about them, and with three straight wins coming into this game, this will be the Redskins' best opportunity to show the tides are changing.
Both teams would love a big win today, but the Redskins probably need it more than then Ravens as they attempt to muscle their way into the postseason reckoning.
