Found January 20, 2013 on Football Extra Points:
The Ravens and Patriots are playing in a rematch of last years AFC Championship game. Will this years results be different? The key for the Ravens is keeping Tom Brady off the field. The Ravens offense needs to put together long drives with Ray Rice and Joe Flacco. If the Ravens try to match the Patriots quick strike offense they will not win this game. The Patriots key to win this game is stop Ray Rice and force Joe Flacco to beat them. Flacco had some big yardage numbers last week but most of that came on three plays. If the Denver secondary plays the ball right at the end of the game, Manning is playing this week. I like the Patriots in this game and I think this one could be over by halftime.
