Tom Brady has the New England Patriots back in the Super Bowl.
The Patriots beat the stunned Ravens 23-20 in the AFC Championship Game Sunday after Baltimore's Billy Cundiff missed a 32-yard field goal attempt with 11 seconds remaining that would have tied the score.
Brady scored the winning touchdown when he leaped over the vaunted Ravens defense in the fourth quarter.
His 1-yard dive brought the Patriots (15-3) from behind, and the maligned New England defense made several key plays, including shutting down Ray Rice, the league's total yardage leader.
Brady guided the Patriots to their fifth AFC championship in 11 seasons. Next up as the Patriots chase their fourth Super Bowl trophy in Brady and coach Bill Belichick's tenure in New England is the winner of Sunday's late game for the NFC championship between the New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers. The Super Bowl is Feb. 5 in Indianapolis.
