BALTIMORE — The Ravens are set to host the Los Angeles Chargers in the Wild Card Round Sunday and they're getting support around Baltimore.

Mayor Catherine Pugh is asking people to show their support for the Ravens as they prepare for the playoff game.

She's asking home and business owners to use purple lights on their homes and buildings.

The Department of General Services has already installed purple lights on several buildings like the Bromo Seltzer Tower, War Memorial and City Hall.

The homepage of Baltimore City's website is also purple to support the team.

Mayor Pugh released this statement:

I want to first congratulate Coach John Harbaugh, Owner Steve Bisciotti, President Dick Cass, General Manager Ozzie Newsome, the players, and the entire Ravens organization for their grit and determination to win the AFC North division and make it back to the playoffs. The Ravens back in the postseason and hosting a playoff game is going to be great for Baltimore. Our hotels, restaurants and bars in the City will benefit from the thousands of fans coming out to watch the game and cheer for our Ravens together. I look forward to joining Ravens Nation as we light this great city purple. Go Ravens!
