The Ravens had them beat fair and square last season in the AFC Championship, but Lee Evans was one of the sickest men on the planet to drop that wide open pass in the end zone. Everybody should know the rest as Billy Cundiff then missed a an easy, chip shot free kick. The Pats and Ravens have met nine times in the franchises histories, with New England winning seven of them.

New England made up for it last year by winning a game they really did not have a ton of business winning.

Baltimore Ravens at New England Patriots: AFC Conference Championship

I’ve gone back and forth on this one. On one hand, some of the reasons I didn’t like the Patriots last week are still true.

Last year, they were favored by a similar amount in a similar situation here against...
