In those games, Flacco has thrown for 1,271 yards, nine touchdowns and four interceptions. Brady has thrown for 1,278 yards, five touchdowns and seven interceptions.

Now the question is, will Flacco and the Ravens even up the two teams’ record since 2008? Or will the Patriots avenge their Week 3 loss in Baltimore?

Baltimore Ravens: Five Reasons They Will Lose the AFC Title Game

I remember it like it was yesterday.

Knocked away by Sterling Moore. We all know what happened after that. Billy Cundiff's shanked 32-yard field goal crushed the Ravens'...
