The Baltimore Ravens clinched their fifth consecutive win with an impressive 33-19 triumph over the San Francisco 49ers on Monday night, extending their overall record to 12-3 and securing the top spot in the AFC North. With just two weeks left in the regular season, Baltimore stands poised for a potential first-round bye and the advantage of playing at home throughout the playoffs. Following their strong performance against the 49ers, many are now predicting the Ravens to make it to the Super Bowl.

However, the Cleveland Browns, who handed the Ravens their last defeat in Week 10, might have a say in that prediction. In that game, the Browns were behind by two touchdowns before quarterback Deshaun Watson orchestrated a remarkable comeback. Watson’s second-half performance was flawless, completing all 14 of his passes for 134 yards and a touchdown, as highlighted by Nick Karns on Twitter.

Watson not only threw a touchdown but also succeeded in a two-point conversion attempt. His exceptional display ultimately led to a 33-31 victory, marking the last game Watson played before being placed on injured reserve on November 15. Despite his absence from play for over a month, Watson remains the most recent NFL quarterback to have defeated Lamar Jackson and the Ravens.

The precision and excellence demonstrated by Watson in that final half might set the standard for defeating Baltimore moving forward. Since their loss to Cleveland, the Ravens have convincingly triumphed over every opponent they’ve encountered, with their only close game resulting in a six-point win against the LA Rams on December 10. Baltimore’s upcoming matches are against Miami and Pittsburgh at home, while Cleveland hosts the New York Jets before concluding the season with a trip to Cincinnati.
