New England Patriots
BALTIMORE -- Justin Tucker's 27-yard field goal as time expired gave the Baltimore Ravens a 31-30 comeback win over the New England Patriots on Sunday night in front of 71,269 at M&T Bank Stadium. Baltimore trailed by nine with 14 minutes left and was down 30-28 when Joe Flacco got the ball back with just under two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. He led the Ravens down the field, hitting Jacoby Jones for 24 yards to open the drive and then getting a pass-interference call on Patriots cornerback Devin McCourty that moved the ball 27 yards down to the New England 7-yard line. Tucker, an undrafted rookie out of Texas, booted the kick barely through the right upright, moving the Ravens to 2-1 on the season. Flacco completed 28 of 39 passes for 382 yards, three touchdowns and an interception, and Torrey Smith six receptions for 127 yards and two scores the day after his younger brother, Tevin, died after a motorcycle accident. Smith went to Virginia early Sunda...

Rookie kicker Justin Tucker beat the New England Patriots (1-2) with a last-second field 31-30.
The Ravens (2-1) used a very nice drive to go through the Patriots’ defense for the victory.
The Ravens face the Cleveland Browns Thursday night.
A.B. Video doesn’t lie. Kicker Justin Tucker of the Baltimore Ravens missed that field goal plain and simple. From this angle you can tell it isn’t even close. No wonder the NFL won’t #showusthetape from the video taken from the field goal post.
Baltimore, MD. The Baltimore Ravens were about as close as a team can get to the Super Bowl last year, without actually getting there. After a 12-4 season, they were primed to head into Foxboro and knock off favored New England. Joe Flacco played a marvelous game, the defense was their solid selves, and it literally came down to the final minute as to who would represent the...
Amazingly it came down to a 27-yard FG attempt by the Ravens' Justin Tucker with 0:02 on the game clock...Tucker ended up kicking it twice, as Bill Belichick attempted to freeze him with a called time-out. But the second one counted (just barely as it sailed inches inside the right post)...Funny, I watched the entire game, and never once had the feeling the Ravens were going...
For a moment in last night's Sunday Night Football matchup, we all became Ravens fans.Everyone. Even the die-hard Patriots fanatics with their Brady jerseys and "Gronk" posters.Even the Steelers, Bengals, and Browns fans with their "I Hate Joe Flacco" bumper stickers.If anyone needed to win a game this weekend, it was the Ravens, but not because of the win...
Playing after the death of his brother Tevin Jones, second-year wide receiver Torrey Smith caught a 25-yard pass from Joe Flacco for the Ravens first points of the night.
The Ravens now trail the Patriots 13-7 in the second quarter.
The Patriots lost in controversial fashion on Sunday night in Baltimore, watching as Justin Tucker's 27-yard field goal sailed over the top of the goal posts for the win. So as the Ravens celebrated the thrilling victory, Bill Belichick wanted some answers about the kick that was almost too close to call. Belichick sought the ear of an official after the final whistle, but as...
Three weeks of the 2012 NFL season is in the books and it has certainly had its shares of ups (Arizona Cardinals 3-0…what??) and downs (NFL replacement refs, nuff said) and the Baltimore Ravens are no different. Here are my takeaways three weeks into the season for the Ravens.
Joe Flacco appears to be out to prove something this year and the Ravens are greatly...
It's the long awaited rematch of the AFC Championship. The Pats are headed into Baltimore missing their most versatile offensive weapon. Shockingly, one of these teams is going to start the season 1-2. Make the call - who wins tonight's game?
Jason: I'm less nervous about this game than any previous match-up with the Ravens in recent years. With the way...
The New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens are both coming off of losses in games that they were each favored. With both sitting at 1-1, one of these AFC powerhouses will start the young season with disappointment, but that should not stop either one of them from reaching the playoffs.The Patriots had the single most shocking loss of Week 2, being defeated by the visiting Cardinals...
Finally the Ravens will get to face the Patriots at home. It’s their first game in Baltimore since the Bart Scott flag-throwing game in 2007.
This game will perhaps determine playoff seedings for the AFC as both teams are coming off losses to NFC foes.
The last time these two teams met, it was a gut-wrenching loss for the Ravens. In that game, quarterback Joe Flacco thoroughly...
The NFL is a multibillion dollar organization that stresses the integrity and safety of their game. I know this horse has been beaten many times over the past couple weeks, but the NFL is doing the fans, players, coaches and itself a disservice by continuing to use replacement officials. I am not blaming the replacement officials by no mean, I agree with Brett in his previous...
Joe Flacco, Ravens
Once known in these parts as "Average Joe," Flacco may be on the precipice of finally fulfilling his first-round potential. After torching the Patriots on Sunday night (28-for-39, 382 yards, three touchdowns), the Baltimore quarterback is averaging over 304 yards in the early going with six scores versus just two interceptions. More importantly...
