Taking the Pats, but Baltimore has that 2005 Steelers thing going on with Lewis.

As far as the game next week goes i said before the PO that the Ravens was the team i feared the most and i stand by that. They have been giving a hard time to the Pats for a few years now and games between the two teams are almost always close.

I favor the Pats but this won't be easy. I'd say Pats 55% - Ravens 45%

Too close to call. Flip a coin. I think Pats would have steamrolled Denver

I know the focus will be the Ravens D vs. Pats offense, but on the flip side, how about the Pats D vs. the Ravens offense?

Joe Flacco had a killer game vs. Denver and that D. A D that is better than the one the Pats present.

I mean stopping Smith, Boldin, Pitta and I guess Jones will be pretty tough for the Pats. I know they upgraded their secondary, but that's shown to be a pretty formidable group.

Their rushing attack with Rice and Pierce has also shown consistently good.

The Ravens O-line also shut down a hell of a pass rushing tandem in Von Miller and Doom. Pats don't have that caliber of rusher. Wilfork is a beast in the middle for sure, and Jones and Ninkovich are also talented, but I don't think anyone can argue that they are a better passrushing combo than Von Miller and Doom.

It'll be an interesting game. I think both offenses will get their points, I think it will come down to which D can get more stops.

Ravens D is old, so they have to be well prepared for the Patriot's no huddle/quick huddle attack. Lewis and Reed have to get the Defense organized and ready after each play.

That puts more emphasis on the Raven's Offense to control the clock and work the ball to Rice. Keep Brady on the sidelines and give the Defense a rest. Can't afford many 3 and outs. Have to sustain drives to change field position.

The Patriot front seven is great, the Ravens will have problems establish the run. Their "only" chance is if Flacco plays like he did last year in the AFCCG. I expect the Pats to take away Rice like they took away Foster (even though he had a great end to the first half).

They'll have to beat the Pats through the air early on if they want to establish the run.

Broncos had a great front 7 as well, but Rice still managed to crack 100 yards and they held the pass rush to 1 sack. I expect that they'll be able to do enough running to be able to keep the play calling balanced.

Ravens defenders get to Brady and move on in a close one.

I guess the Ravens are the only team left I could somehow envision rooting for, but only if I absolutely had to pick a team. Other than that, these playoffs have been a disaster to me. All teams I didn't want to advance from the divisional round, advanced. Was hoping for a Broncos vs. Packers Super Bowl after the Giants got eliminated.

Justin Tucker makes the difference. Ravens get the upset win this time.

This should be good.

Watching Brady destroy the Ravens and having God lay the smack A down on Ray Lewis for his past.

I couldn't believe those tweets when they were reading them on Gameday Final last night. I mean does he seriously think the Patriots should wait for the other team to get ready before snapping the ball? I'm guessing he takes the short bus.

Pats hurry up offense is going to eat up the Ravens next week. This game will come down to the Pats defense because the offense will get their points.

Robert Kraft stuck around to shake Arian Foster's hand.

There isn't an owner in the NFL better than Robert Kraft. You could easily make the argument that he is the best owner in the NFL. It is extremely difficult to find one as good as him. He is everything an owner should be.

New England 38, Baltimore 20.

The Ravens defense is a paper tiger.
