FOXBORO, Mass. — The AFC’s two best teams will be representing the conference at Gillette Stadium next Sunday — at least that’s what Tom Brady believes.
The Patriots quarterback was in good spirits after a 41-28 win over the Texans on Sunday night, and while he closed the book on Houston, he began looking ahead to New England’s next opponent: Baltimore.
The Ravens are headed to Foxboro for a rematch of last year’s AFC Championship Game, after Ray Lewis and Co. defeated Peyton Manning‘s Broncos in a double-overtime thriller on Saturday. The Broncos were the No. 1 seed in the AFC coming into the playoffs, but Brady expressed his belief that the two best teams are the ones left standing.
“I think the two best teams are in the finals,” Brady said. “Baltimore certainly deserves to be here and so do we, so it’s very fitting.”
Brady is not taking anything away from Manning, but considering the Ravens not only pulled out the win in Denver, but also managed to beat the Patriots earlier this sea

Here are the quarterbacks and how they stack-up

Tom Brady, New England Patriots
Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Fouts believes Tom Brady is getting a little help from the referees. When speaking on CBS Sports Network, Fouts had this to say:
“Tom Brady has to be protected to be effective. He’s protected better than anybody — not only by his offensive line, but sometimes, by those guys in the striped shirts.”
Fouts says more, but first I have to point out...
The NFL's winningest postseason quarterback is right where he belongs; on the verge of leading his team to yet another Super Bowl appearance. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has made it to the AFC Championship almost twice the amount of times that he hasn't. Seven times in his 11 years as a starter (not counting 2008 when he was injured). This is an astounding...
Hot News for QB Tom Brady
Even though Tom Brady convincingly put the Texans’ season to an end, they can look back and be proud of many things they have accomplished in 2012. But the loss in Foxborough highlighted the fact that, as improved as this squad is, they still have some work to do before they are a serious threat to New England’s dominance in the AFC. Houston has only themselves to blame for...

We thought of washed up MILFs everywhere when our own Mother of All Stats, Passer Rating Differential, got hammered like cosmo-swilling cougar Mrs. Stiffler in the divisional round. Still, Colin Kaepernick, Tom Brady and our Real and Spectacular picks rock 'n roll on.
Tom Brady was shaky early on, Wes Welker had an uncharacteristic drop, and Rob Gronkowski was nursing an injury that kept him from making any sort of impact. But Sunday night's Patriots' 41-28 AFC divisional-round victory over the Texans wasn't exactly a carbon copy of last year's heartbreaking Super Bowl loss to the Giants.
Quite the contrary, in fact, as the Patriots...
Can you win the Super Bowl without a top 6 or 7 quarterback? It’s a debate that’s been transpiring on local sports radio for about a year now. The question has played out to perfection in the Divisional Round of the playoffs this year. With the rule changes in the NFL catering to offenses I was inclined to take the better QB in every game. Having the franchise QB means...
On Sunday afternoon, with Rob Gronkowski and his injured forearm in the locker room and Danny Woodhead having long left the field, Wes Welker was still going.
He had six catches for 120 yards at the half, and he finished the game with eight catches for 131 yards. It wasn’t like many people noticed, though, with everything else that was happening. On a day that saw key injuries...
