Everything that could go wrong for the Baltimore Ravens did, and as a result they were the odd team out in the AFC playoff hunt. Entering Sunday’s game with division rival Cincinnati, the Ravens needed a win or a loss by either Tennessee or Buffalo. Those clubs did what they needed to do and then watched as the Ravens imploded against a team that had nothing to play for but pride.
After one of the most devastating losses in team history, the Ravens are already paying the price of missing out on the postseason for a third consecutive season. It’s the longest stretch of playoff-less football since the franchise began its existence in 1996 and went four years without a postseason game. The club made up for it in its fifth year, however, winning the first of two Super Bowl titles following the 2000 campaign. The Ravens moved into position to break their two-year postseason hiatus on the strength of a strong defense, only to see the group breakdown at the biggest moment of the year.
Leading the Bengals late, the Ravens allowed a fourth-down touchdown pass with less than a minute to play to seal their fate. Owners of one of the worst offenses in the NFL, Cincinnati scored a season-high point total and as a result defensive coordinator Dean Pees announced his retirement. For most teams that fail to reach the postseason, we could see more changes as the off-season begins earlier than most in Baltimore expected.
