The Baltimore Ravens defeated the Atlanta Falcons in Week 16 by the final score of 17-9. Baltimore found a way to limit Atlanta to just three field goals while scoring a touchdown of their own on their way to their 10th win of the season.

In the victory, the Ravens did their part to clinch a playoff berth. However, in order to get into the big dance in Week 16, they needed a few teams to lose. They got that help, with the New York Jets losing to the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday Night Football while the New England Patriots lost to the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday afternoon.

Baltimore will now turn their sights to the AFC North, where they are currently one game behind the Bengals for their division. The two teams match up in Week 18 in what will likely be a winner-take-all showdown.
