Ravens vs Bengals playoff record

While the Bengals and Ravens face off twice a year during the regular season, the two teams have actually never played one another in the postseason. As such, there is no standing playoff record for the pair as their game during Super Wild Card Weekend on January 15 marks the first time the AFC North rivals will face off in the postseason.

Cincinnati did face off against a Baltimore team in the playoffs once in the past, with the Bengals losing to the Baltimore Colts back in the 1970s playoffs.

History will be made today as the Bengals and Ravens have never faced off against one another in the postseason. As such, the winner of tonight’s Wild Card game will not only eliminate their rival but also walk away with bragging rights over their rival.

Have the Ravens ever beat the Bengals in the playoffs?

The Baltimore Ravens have not defeated the Bengals in a playoff game before as the two teams have not faced one another in the postseason. A win over the Bengals in the Super Wild Card Weekend game would not only give the Ravens an upset win over their rivals but would also give them a 1-0 record over the Bengals in the postseason.
