The Giants and Ravens face off in an important game for both teams.

Josh D. Weiss-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Giants will be fighting for their division title hopes and possibly their playoff lives when they visit the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. New York has lost control of the NFC East as both the Redskins and Cowboys have surged down the stretch. The Giants need to beat the Ravens for a shot at a home game in the playoffs, and likely need a win to have a shot at getting in at all.

The Ravens also have plenty on the line. Baltimore has seen its AFC North lead dwindle to one game over the Cincinnati Bengals after a three-game losing streak. The Ravens were once contending for home field advantage throughout the playoffs, but now are just hoping to get one game at M&T Stadium.

New York has struggled against the AFC North this season, going 1-2 thus far with losses to the Steelers and Ravens in back-to-back weeks that starting the Giants' late-season slide. The Ravens also have not fared well going out of conference, with just one win in three games, which came over the Cowboys in October.

Game time, TV schedule: 4:25 p.m. ET, FOX

Radio: WFAN660 AM

Spread: Giants favored by 1½
