|Ravens Not Afraid of Matchup With Bears
|BALTIMORE (AP) -- The Baltimore Ravens are still in the playoff hunt because of their ability to beat bad teams, a trait that will again be tested Sunday against the Chicago Bears.
The Ravens are 7-6 on the season and 5-0 against teams with losing records. They remain in contention to snare one of the two AFC wild-card slots.
The Bears and quarterback Jay Cutler will be tested by the Ravens, who amassed a club-record 548 yards in a 48-3 rout of the woeful Detroit Lions.
Cutler has thrown 22 interceptions this season, and can ill afford to add significantly to that total if the Bears are to pull off an upset.
The pressure now is on the Ravens, who have struggled in their bid to return to the playoffs after reaching the AFC championship game last year.
