This matchup is a done deal.
The Indianapolis Colts were locked into the AFC's fifth seed already, but the Ravens' loss to the Bengals also sets their seed and a date with the Colts in Baltimore one week from now.
The Ravens were apparently content enough with this seed to rest several starters against Cincinnati, but the team enters the postseason on the wrong kind of streak after dropping four of their last five games.
Meanwhile, the Colts' improbable run to the playoffs continues, and the return of Chuck Pagano to the sidelines and the victory over the Texans are huge boosts as they prepare to head to Maryland.
Linebacker Ray Lewis hopes to return to the field for this game, and he's badly needed, as a Baltimore defense that has been eviscerated by injuries has been exposed over the past month.
