The winning field goal that Ravens kicker Justin Tucker booted to clinch Sunday's 31-30 win left the Patriots with more than just disappointment.
The team also wanted the play reviewed to see if the ball had passed through the uprights.
Defensive tackle Vince Wilfork said the kick "looked very close" to him, and he was visibly agitated walking away from the game-ending play.
Wilfork said officials should have reviewed the play.
"They have to," he said. "In a game like this you have to. They ran off the field, so it is what it is. I'm not going to sit here and pick a fight with those guys. They have a job to do, we have a job to do."
Fox Sports analyst Mike Pereira, the former NFL head of officiating, said on Twitter the play would not be eligible for review "because you cannot determine when exactly the ball is directly over the pole." Source: Boston Globe

The Ravens face the Cleveland Browns Thursday night.
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...
Through the first two games of the season and even the first quarter of Sunday night's loss to the Ravens, the Patriots' defense had new life. Gone was the floppy secondary that couldn't be trusted on deep throws. Suddenly arrived was a legitimate pass rush. Fully present was a complete unit that could shut down opponents on runs and passes while stopping key drives....

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...
Justin Tucker barely made a field goal with two seconds remaining in the game to defeat the Patriots 31-30. The ball was high and just crossed over the upright.It was a shaky start for the Patriots offense. In New England's first possession, Tom Brady wasn't ready for the snap, which resulted in a recovered fumble by Wes Welker. The following play, the Ravens defense blitzed...
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...
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...
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...
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...
