Series history for the Bengals and Ravens, who meet at 1 p.m. Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore:

• The series is tied 20-20, with the Bengals holding a 13-7 edge in games played in Cincinnati.

• The last meeting was Jan. 3, 2016, when the Bengals scored a 24-16 victory at Paul Brown Stadium in 2015 regular-season finale. AJ McCarron threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to A.J. Green and Jeremy Hill ran for a 38-yard score — the team’s longest rush of the season — to help the Bengals overcome a 9-7 halftime deficit and improve to 12-4 to tie the best record in franchise history.

• The Bengals have won five in a row, which is their longest current winning streak against any team.

• A victory Sunday would give Cincinnati its first lead in the series since 1998, when the Bengals lead 3-2.

• The two largest road comebacks in Bengals history have occurred in Baltimore. The team overcame an 18-point deficit to win 24-21 in the Ravens inaugural season of 1996, and Cincinnati rallied from 17 down for a 27-26 triumph in 2004.

• The Bengals set a franchise record with 134 penalty yards in a 20-17 overtime loss to the Ravens in 2013, and a year later Cincinnati kicker Mike Nugent tied the NFL record for field goals in a half (five) to pace a 23-16 win.
