How Have Ravens Fared in December Games?
Fact Checked by Pat McLoone

The Baltimore Ravens, at 8-3, are still holding the lead in the AFC North but only by the slimmest of margins. In close pursuit are the Cleveland Brown at 7-3. And even the Pittsburgh Steelers (6-4) and the Cincinnati Bengals (5-5) can’t be ruled out of making a surge and winning the division or grabbing a playoff berth.

So, as usual, the battle for the division title, and for qualifying for the playoffs, and even for seeding within the postseason tournament, will come down to play in December. 

That being the case, BetMaryland.com – your source for Maryland sports betting - utilized StatMuse.com to examine the records of every NFL team in December since 2013 to find the best-to-worst teams during that month. Note that all teams didn’t participate in the same number of games, so ranking is based on win percentage.

Ravens Right There in Top 5

In the Ravens’ favor is that as a tough defensive team with a run-oriented offense, historically they have fared well as the weather has gotten more inhospitable. Interestingly, during this December, the Ravens will be playing road games in a couple of  locales where the weather figures to be mild. It remains to be seen how that affects the Ravens’ Super Bowl odds.

Since 2013, in December, Baltimore is 27-17, for a .614 winning percentage.  That’s fifth-best in the NFL behind only Green Bay, Kansas City, Dallas and arch-rival Pittsburgh. 

Often, the Ravens find themselves battling the Steelers in a late-season game and this year is no different as the NFL schedule-makers have Baltimore at home against Pittsburgh on Jan. 7.  In their first game against the Steelers this season on Oct. 8, the Ravens lost, 17-10, on the road.

The Ravens next face the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday night. BetMGM Maryland has the Ravens as a 3.5-point and -190 moneyline favorite.

The Ravens’ December calendar features a bye for the first weekend of the month followed by the L.A. Rams at home on Dec. 10; at Jacksonville on Dec.17; at San Francisco on Christmas Day, and at home against the Dolphins, on Dec. 31.  

Then, there’s the showdown against Pittsburgh on Jan. 7, at M&T Bank Stadium, where Baltimore will hope even the score after the earlier loss in October.
