The Patriots need to win Sunday night to keep their one-game lead in the AFC.

Listen to your team news NOW.

In one of the most anticipated games of the year, the Ravens came away with a 20-17 win over the 49ers on a last second Justin Tucker 49-yard field goal Sunday in Baltimore.

The win moves the Ravens to 10-2 on the year and if the Patriots were to lose to Houston Sunday night, they would fall to 10-2, but Baltimore holds the tiebreaker. In that case the Ravens would be the No. 1 seed and the Patriots the No. 2 seed.

The game was played in miserable, rainy conditions and certainly impacted both offenses. Jimmy Garoppolo was 15-for-21 passing with 165 yards and a touchdown, while Lamar Jackson was 14-for-23 passing with 105 yards and a touchdown. He also added 101 yards on the ground.

Baltimore has games against the Bills, Jets, Browns and Steelers to close out the year. And after Houston, the Patriots close the year with games against the Chiefs, Bengals, Bills and Jets.
