New England Patriots
BALTIMORE -- Nearly eight months to the day after the Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots squared off in a fiercely competitive game that was decided by a Baltimore field-goal attempt, the same script played out Sunday night at M&T Bank Stadium. The last meeting between these two teams came in the AFC Championship Game, and it saw the Patriots emerge with a 23-20 win after a missed Billy Cundiff field goal late in the fourth quarter. The stakes weren't nearly as high Sunday, but this time, the Ravens converted a last-second field-goal attempt by rookie Justin Tucker and beat the Patriots 31-30. "There's a lot of emotion, there's a lot of history between these two teams," Tucker said. "It's just one of those things that you accept, and you've really just got to embrace it and embrace it in the moment." Tucker's 27-yard attempt found its way just inside the right upright as time expired, giving the Ravens (2-1) a dramatic c...

Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith lost his 19-year-old brother, Tevin, to a motorcycle accident early Sunday morning. It is unknown if he will play against the Patriots.
QUOTH THE RAVEN FANS
Sunday Night Football has brought us some crazy plays and some God awful officiating. We’ve seen Bill Belichick mouth visual expletives and also the crowd in Baltimore gave the loudest expletive chant I’ve ever heard in all of my years watching sports. The Baltimore Raven faithful are not happy with the calls that the New England Patriots are getting and they have good reason...
Torrey Smith took a knee and pointed to the sky after he hauled in a 25-yard touchdown reception from Joe Flacco. Smith, who is playing with a heavy heart because of the recent death of his younger brother, was then met by most of his teammates in an emotional scene after the catch.
Smith's brother, Tevin Chris Jones, died on early Sunday morning after being involved in a motorcycle...
The brother of Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith has been killed in a motorcycle accident.

Tonight, the New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens meet up for a Sunday Night Football tilt that marks the first time these two squads have met since last season’s AFC title game.
Lee Evans and Billy Cundiff went boom in a matter of moments; thus, the Patriots won the AFC and Baltimore was left crying those tears of remorse into the pillow of regret.
As Brandon Spikes already phrased more eloquently than we ever could, the replacement officials were as bad as they have been all year during Sunday night’s game between the Patriots and Ravens. Their performance resulted in 70,000-plus fans reaching their boiling point toward the end of the game when John Harbaugh received an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. Harbaugh claims he...
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...
Coming into this game, the Baltimore Ravens could only think about one thing: getting revenge on the New England Patriots for knocking them out of the playoffs last year. These feelings kind of took a backseat as they help comfort wide receiver Torrey Smith after hearing less than 24 hours that his younger brother, Tevin Jones passed away in a motorcycle accident. In return, Smith...
Late Saturday night, Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith got a call that most hope never to receive. Smith learned that his little 19-year-oldbrother, Tevin Jones, passed away after a motorcycle accident. It was unclear whether Smith would play Sunday night in the AFC Championship rematch from a year ago. However, led by Smith and a 27-yard field goal from a rookie...
An early interception by Joe Flacco and pinpoint passing by Tom Brady has led to a Ravens’ deficit of 10-0 in the first quarter.
The Ravens look sluggish on defense and offense so far.
So far, not so good for the Ravens.
Julian Edleman dropped this second quarter pass
Honestly, when the fourth quarter came around, I don’t think either teams fan base wanted to win the football game. They really just wanted to find head referee Bruce Hermanson’s car and throw chicken-milk stink bombs at it. In the end, it was the Ravens who came out victors over the New England Patriots, after a little bit more...

There wasn’t much that happened on the field tonight that I respected, but Torrey Smith’s performance is one. So here’s a nod to Torrey for a memorable performance under horrible circumstances that helped his team pull out the win.
Congrats to the Ravens. Now back to the Pats drawing board…
6 receptions. 127 yards. 2 touchdowns. Wow.
Mike Pereira, the former Vice President of Officiating in the NFL and current rules analyst at Fox Sports, took to Twitter to analyze the controversial Baltimore Ravens' game-winning field goal: Just got back. Here is the rule on FGs. The entire ball must pass inside the outside edge of the upright.— Mike Pereira (@MikePereira) September 24, 2012 A FG that goes over the top...
