Bengals beat Ravens to avoid coin flip, set up home rematch

CINCINNATI (AP) — Joe Burrow threw for a touchdown and Joe Mixon ran for another as the Cincinnati Bengals took advantage of four Baltimore turnovers to beat the Ravens 27-16 and set up a rematch in the first round of the playoffs next Sunday night. The AFC North champion Bengals beat a Ravens team that rested some key players ahead of the postseason. Cincinnati finished the season with eight straight wins and avoided a coin flip to determine the site of its playoff game against Baltimore. But the Bengals’ chances at the No. 2 seed in the AFC ended when Buffalo beat New England. Third-string quarterback Anthony Brown started for the Ravens. He threw two interceptions and lost a fumble.
