Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh isn't pleased with the NFL's decision to move kickoff for Sunday's important game against the Cincinnati Bengals to 4:25 p.m. ET, especially if it affects the size of the crowd at M&T Bank Stadium. "I don't think the NFL did us any favors by moving it back," Harbaugh said Tuesday. "But they don't care about us. So, we just have to care about ourselves. We have to take care of our own business. That goes for our team, for our fans and for our city. Let's go win the football game." The NFL shifted five games from 1 p.m. to 4:25 p.m. ET because of playoff implications. In the case of the AFC, the games involving the Ravens, Tennessee Titans and Buffalo Bills were moved because they wanted all the teams vying for a wild-card berth to be playing at the same time. Because the Los Angeles Chargers begin late in the afternoon Sunday, Baltimore, Tennessee and Buffalo had their kickoffs pushed more than three hours later. Now, the fear is the hometown crowd will be smaller because of conflicts with New Year's Eve plans. The Ravens have already been dealing with an increased amount of no-shows this season. Team president Dick Cass sent out a letter to season-ticket holders last week in an effort to get more fans to games.
