OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) - After all they've been through this season, the Baltimore Ravens are right where they need to be with four games left on the schedule.
The defending Super Bowl champions are riding their first winning streak since September, a two-game run that has put the Ravens in command for the AFC's second wild-card slot. Baltimore and Miami are both 6-6, but the Ravens own the tiebreaker by virtue of their October victory over the Dolphins.
If Baltimore wins out, it is assured a sixth straight trip to the playoffs.
Coach John Harbaugh said Monday, "We are in position to control our own destiny. That is what you try to accomplish going into December. "
After beating Pittsburgh on Thanksgiving night, the Ravens had the weekend off. Baltimore hosts Minnesota on Sunday.
