Who will you be rooting for on Saturday? Baltimore or Denver?
Raj: I got a lot of criticism for fellow Patriots fans on twitter for my decision to root for the Ravens last Sunday and that isn't changing. One reason is because Ray Rice carried Rutgers to glory and I am a Jersey guy. Pride apart, I also rooted for the Ravens because let's be honest, who is a much tougher adversary for the opponent? Baltimore by far has the best chance to knock Peyton Manning off his horse (no pun intended).

If the Patriots can get past the Houston Texans tomorrow evening, they will be hosting the AFC Championship game against the Baltimore Ravens.

After Tim Tebow won the Broncos a playoff game against the Steelers and was then replaced by Peyton Manning the next season, there were likely hard feelings between the quarterback and his former organization — especially after what followed with the Jets during the 2012 season.

Usually more comfortable in the pocket, Peyton Manning scrambled to his right to avoid pressure.
Usually so accurate, the Denver Broncos quarterback threw a pass across his body - an ill-advised toss he's gotten away with a few times over his career.
This time, he wouldn't.
Late in the first overtime, Manning tried to thread the ball to Brandon Stokley, only to have the...
The 2012 NFL season is now down to just 8 remaining teams, all whom are vying for a spot in their conference’s championship game. But for that to happen they must beat their opponent in the NFL Divisional Round this Saturday and Sunday.
