BALTIMORE (WMAR) — The Ravens clinched a playoff birth on Sunday following a victory over the Bills in Buffalo.

Now Baltimore City Mayor Jack Young is asking all Baltimore citizens and businesses to turn the city purple.

Some are already getting started.

On Monday night, The Bromo Seltzer Tower, The War Memorial, and City Hall Dome will all be lit up purple.

"It is always great for Baltimore when the Ravens are winning and headed to the playoffs and now we are also fighting for home-field advantage. Our hotels, restaurants, and bars in the City will benefit from the thousands of fans coming out to watch the games and cheer for our Ravens together. I look forward to joining Ravens Nation as we light this great city purple," said Young.

The Ravens now sit 11-2 atop the AFC North Division with three games remaining in the regular NFL season.
