Ravens Football Machine:
New England Patriots
New York Giants
The Ravens are 7-point underdogs in Foxborough this Sunday at 6:30 PM EST kickoff. You'd logically think the Ravens would be "due" to beat the Pats since it's their "turn" after basically blowing the winning or tying points in the last minute of last year's championship match. But the NFL does not carry over good intent, nor does it always reward long-suffering effort in ways that seem "fair". The fact is, the Patriots are "due" to have a breakout monster game at home, something they have not accomplished against the Ravens in a while.
For all of these reasons and more, the Ravens must have the game of their lives on Sunday---and a bunch of Raven "Action Heroes" will need to emerge to rip the game away from the big-play guys on the other side.
"I think we personally kind of wanted to play the Patriots again," defensive tackle Haloti Ngata said. "If w...
BEST OF MAXIM

It’s often said that a man with nothing to lose should be feared. That was once true of the New England Patriots Tom Brady. Brady started his NFL postseason career with nine straight wins. He was 3-0 in Super Bowls and was named the game’s most valuable player twice; all by the age of 27. He was young, hungry and had nothing to lose — no legacy to protect, no hype...
There is only one team Tom Brady hasn’t thrown more touchdowns than interceptions against. Can you take a guess? Ok, that was easy, right?
In Brady’s 7 games against the Ravens (postseason included), he has thrown 7 touchdowns and 8 interceptions (he still leads his team to victory though, going 5-2, which in the end is all that matters). His completion percentage of 58.4 is...
A.B. The best quarterback to ever play in the NFL is only a few days away from the NEXT biggest game of his life. The New England Patriots will host the Baltimore Ravens this Sunday for the right to go to the Super Bowl. Or as Patriots fans are calling it: Ray Lewis’ retirement party.
In honor of the G.O.A.T., here are number twelve’s 12 best product endorsements ever… including...
Son of a monkey, I thought we were done with the Carly Rae Jepsen “Call Me Maybe” parodies. Ravens fans turned the clock back to when Manti Te’o was merely known as a good college linebacker and re-wrote this jam to say how ready they are for the Patriots and Tom Brady.
Let us all remember how the Broncos fared after their fans dubbed a Tim Tebow-themed auto-tuned trash talking...
When Tom Brady took over for an injured Drew Bledsoe back in 2001, I believe you would have been hard pressed to find people who thought the young quarterback would be an all-time great. The interesting thing is, Brady himself believed it.
At the time, Damon Huard was the Patriot’s third-string quarterback. In an interview with ESPN.com, he let it be known that Brady told him...
'BRING ON BRADY'
The nation had more than its fill of “Call Me Maybe” and “Gangnam Style” parodies in 2012, but some people aren’t ready to let the phenomenon die now that we have entered the new year. On Wednesday, a trio of Baltimore Ravens posted a video on YouTube called “Bring on Brady.” For those of you who couldn’t guess, the song centers around them calling out Tom Brady....
Tom Brady’s flipping the bill Juan…
Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees has his hands full with trying to stop the New England Patriots on Sunday, and he knows more than the average person about just how deadly Tom Brady and company can be. Pees was a defensive coach for the Patriots from 2004-2009, so he has experience watching Brady from the sidelines and going up against him in practice.
So how does...
When Baltimore defensive coordinator Dean Pees was asked this week how his team plans to stop Tom Brady, he jokingly replied, “Hire Tonya Harding.” No need to outsource the Dreamboat injury duties when you got Bernard Pollard on the roster.
In reality, the Ravens defense has typically done all right against Brady without resorting to head-hunting and knee-shredding.
Will this be the last NFL game for Ray Lewis, or with Bill Belichick and Tom Brady get to another Super Bowl. The guys in Vegas have New England at more than a touchdown favorite, but the line has been moving in Baltimore’s direction.
The other hot pick seems to be San Francisco, as they are now a 3.5 to 4 point favorite on the road against Atlanta, as everyone seems to be jumping...
8 a.m. ET: The day of reckoning is upon us, at least for those of us who intently follow the NFL.
The NFL’s conference judgment day will begin with the San Francisco 49ers’ visit to Atlanta for the NFC crown, but all eyes will be peeled for the Ravens’ trip to Foxboro to mark a repeat of last season’s AFC title game.
Tom Brady has been preparing for his chance at a sixth...
Veteran fantasy football drafters know about risk and reward. They know that waiting on a quarterback is a risk, as you let premier talents like Tom Brady and Drew Brees slip off the board. They know that drafting Peyton Manning, two years, one team change and at least four neck surgeries removed from his last NFL action, represented a huge risk, albeit one with potentially great...
