Ravens Football Machine:
New England Patriots
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 to win it...The game-winning kick followed a pass interference call against Devin McCourty, who was covering Jacoby Jones.
As the officials were leaving the field, Patriots coach Bill Belichick grabbed one of them by the arm. He didn't pursue as the official continued to run off the field. No doubt Belichick will be getting a Fed Ex envelope from NFL Headquarters tomorrow."I'm not going to comment on that," Belichick said. "You saw the game. What did we have, 30 penalties called in that game?"
Actually, 24, including 14 against the Ravens for 135 yards.
Baltimore (2-1) won it...

Bill Belichick lost his composure after Sunday's Patriots-Ravens game. It looked like Belichick wanted to confront the replacement officials about the lack of a challenge after Ravens kicker Justin Tucker just barely kicked the ball above the uprights. The rule, which Belichick surely knows by now, is that a ball through the uprights is challenge-able, a ball above the uprights...
The moralizing and pontificating began as soon as Football Night In America cameras captured New England coach Bill Belichick running and grabbing a member of the officiating crew's arm in the chaotic aftermath of Sunday's Patriots-Ravens game.
Media giddily tweeted: Get ready for a FedEx envelope, Billy.
Tony Dungy lectured from his bully pulpit.
Merits of a fine and...
Bill Belichick will undoubtedly hear from the NFL offices this week after he grabbed a replacement referee after the Patriots’ 31-30 loss to the Ravens.
On Friday, we told you the league sent a memo to each team warning them that they would no longer tolerate anyone being anything other than nice to the replacement refs. And we’ll go out on a limb and say that grabbing a referee...
Everyone’s favorite Napoleon complex-stricken NFL coach, Bill Belichick, was at it again on Sunday night as his mounting frustration toward the NFL replacement officials finally boiled over in a pathetic post-game display of misguided anger.
In a heated battle that was chippy from the opening whistle, the Patriots found themselves winning by two scores for most of the...
Justin Tucker kicked a 27-yard field goal as time expired,
giving the Baltimore Ravens a 31-30 victory over the New England
Patriots on Sunday night in a rematch of the AFC championship
This weekend can be described as a comedy of errors with the NFL’s replacement refs. The controversial ending to the Ravens vs. Patriots featured a Justin Tucker game-winning field goal that many Pats players thought was out. Patriots coach Bill Belichick was so incensed, that he attempted to run down the officiating crew after the [...]
As was to be expected sports radio was all about the Patriots and their second straight loss Sunday night. There were a bunch of different story lines that dominated the airwaves. Obviously the referees and how poorly the game was called was the lead story, but then there was also the Bill Belichick pushing an official following the game side of things, which got a lot more attention...
Late in the second quarter of the Patriots/Ravens Sunday Night Football game on NBC, a streaker interrupted the action. As usual the cameras panned away from the streaker and showed a stoic Bill Belichick and Tom Brady looking to the field watching the streaker action. NBC decided that this break in the action was a good time to read off the sponsorship copy for their aerial blimp...
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...
Washington Redskins Offensive Coordinator Kyle Shanahan isn't as fast at Bill Belichick. Shanahan wasn't able to grab a scab ref -- he simply chased him out of the tunnel while verbally assaulting...

Tomorrow night at M & T Bank Stadium the Ravens will host the Patriots for Week 3 of this early NFL season. Most of the “experts” had this labeled as an early AFC Championship rematch, then during Week 2 both teams lost and set up a scenario in which the loser of this highly anticipated Sunday night tilt would drop below .500 and move to 1-2. Just to give you perspective...
