It took just one big turnaround performance by the Ravens — and the fact that they finally clinched the AFC North title — to spawn a debate over how they should approach their final regular-season game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Should they go all out to win on the off chance that the New England Patriots lose a home game against the Miami Dolphins and squander the No. 3 conference playoff seed? Or should they take the pedal off the metal and try to make sure they are as healthy as possible for their home playoff opener the following weekend?
Don't know why anybody's fretting over this. It's a no-brainer.
The Ravens need to keep on trucking. They need to treat Sunday's game like it's a must-win situation. They need to be that team — like the New York Giants last year — that gets on a roll and stays on a roll all the way through the playoffs.
