New England (12-4) is virtually unbeatable at home in the playoffs- except when they play The Ravens (11-6), who have become their biggest playoff rivals.
The Patriots are 1-2 against Baltimore during their last 3 home meetings, which gives an already confident Ravens team an added boost.
The Ravens are one of the best road teams in the post season and were impressive in their win last week over The Steelers, so they have momentum on their side as well.
New England, meanwhile had a great season, going 10-2 after a 2-2 start, but they haven’t won a championship in over a decade and will need to dig deep to get back their former glory.
Baltimore is big on their running game thanks to emerging star Justin Forsett while the Pats are more passing focused and still have a formidable defense, so this promises to be a tight game.
Baltimore pulls off another upset and wins this one: 24-21.
