The AFC Championship Game between the New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, MA was a series of peaks and valleys. In the end, there were more valleys and a disappointing 28-13 loss to end the season.

In a period of 10:01 on the game clock the Ravens scored 21 unanswered points and pulled away from the Patriots while building a 28-13 lead on three Flacc...

FLIPPING HIS LID
On a third down play late in the fourth quarter, the Atlanta Falcons seemingly completed a pass to move the chains. The ball seemed to touch the ground, and it was challenged by Jim Harbaugh. The call was upheld, and Harbaugh treated us to one of the best reactions to a call in recent memory. The 49ers eventually forced the Falcons to turn the ball over on downs, and the 49ers...
“Football is a game of inches,” is one of the oldest sayings in Football. This embodies what the NFL is about. Little to no separation. A team, player or coach may be at the top of their game but the difference between themselves and others is small. So minute that over the years, timing and luck at times have more to do with success than preparation and execution. Because at...

Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh didn't hesitate when asked about the comment his wide receiver Anquan Boldin made. When questioned earlier in the week about his team's rematch with the New England Patriots, Boldin simply stated "We'll win."
A quick and light comment, yet it carried so much weight. Boldin basically guaranteed a win for the team....
