Dec. 11, 2019 4:53 PM EST

BALTIMORE (AP) — The Ravens have defeated several of the best teams in the NFL during their nine-game winning streak, so it would appear as if the New York Jets shouldn't pose much of a challenge Thursday night when Baltimore seeks to clinch its second straight AFC North title.
