Going into this weeks game at Lambeau Field against the Packers, the Ravens are 6-5 and in good shape for a stretch run for the playoffs. If the Ravens win this week they will be in good shape to finish 10-6 or better. The Ravens and Steelers have the easiest opposing record remaining amongst the wildcard hopefuls, but both teams have important games remaining against the Packers and each other. The Ravens play the Packers on the road this week and the Steelers play the Packers at home in two weeks.
