The Cincinnati Bengals need the Baltimore Ravens to lose to the New England Patriots tomorrow if they want to have a shot at winning the AFC North when they play the Minnesota
The Bengals – Vikings game will end around 4:30 p.m. when the Ravens and Patriots are kicking-off, and if Cincinnati wins their matchup, then they could clinch the division if Baltimore loses at home, which is looking less likely now that two key Pats have been ruled out for Sunday:
Kenbrell Thompkins & Nate Solder have been downgraded to OUT & will not play in tomorrow’s game. #NEvsBAL

After suffering a concussion in the team’s Week 15 loss vs. the Miami Dolphins, Solder was replaced in the lineup by guard Logan Mankins. Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick suggested Wednesday that Mankins would step into the left tackle spot again this week against the Ravens if Solder remained sidelined.
Solder also suffered a concussion in the game against the Cleveland Browns in Week 13.
