Here is a look at some of the milestones that can be reached this week:
The Ravens need just one win to reach the playoffs for the ninth time in the John Harbaugh era. Harbaugh would become the 10th head coach in NFL history to achieve at least nine postseason appearances in the first 13 seasons of a coaching career.
Running back J.K. Dobbins needs just one touchdown to set a new Ravens rookie record. Dobbins is currently tied with Marquise Brown, Marlon Brown and Torrey Smith for the most total touchdowns scored by a Ravens rookie.
BEST IN THE BUSINESS
It’s a stretch, but kicker Justin Tucker needs five field goals to reach 30th for the seventh season of his career. His six seasons with 30-plus field goals already rank as the most in NFL history.
Tucker also needs eight points to reach 130. He has scored at least 130 points in four straight years. With a fifth, he will tie an NFL record of consecutive seasons with 130-plus points.
Lamar Jackson has the chance to earn his 30th career victory. If he does, he’ll be the first/fastest quarterback in league history to reach 30 wins in his first 37 starts.
