The last time the Patriots hooked up with the Ravens in the playoffs, Wes Welker wasn't able to take the field because of an injury. But it'll be all hands on deck for this Sunday's AFC Championship. Baltimore, which features one of the league's best pass defenses, will surely be looking to shut down Tom Brady and his talented group of receivers. That, of course, is much easier said than done, as very few teams have been able to keep the New England offense at bay this season. The Pats feature a number of weapons in their offense, which could...
BEST OF MAXIM
Even with the success of the Patriots tight ends, Baltimore won’t forget about Wes Welker
The Baltimore Ravens' defense intends to spend much of Sunday afternoon harassing New England quarterback Tom Brady and burying him in the pocket.
Until that time, the game plan evidently is to smother him with praise.

Patriots QB Tom Brady met with the media twice this week, discussing a whole bunch of things each time.

Ravens-Patriots -- Tom Brady vs. Ray Lewis -- is a cultural war of the highest order.
It's offense vs. defense. It's the most valuable offensive player of the new millennium vs. the most valuable defensive player of the new millennium. It's Brady, Gronkowski and Welker vs. Sugar, Sizzle and Safety. It's rock 'n' roll vs. hip-hop.
It's Bird vs. Magic...
This week, we're going to do in-depth scouting reports on the two conference title games. First up: Pats/Ravens.
The Teams: The Baltimore Ravens vs. the New England Patriots
Records: 13-4 (Ravens), 14-3 (Pats)
The Line: Patriots by 7.5. The Ravens were favored by the exact same line last week. Peter King finds this WEIRD and INTERESTING.
The Coaches: Bill Belichick...
Tom Brady and Bill Belichick surely will have what transpired January 10, 2010 on their minds when they welcome the Ravens to town for the AFC Championship game. From the onset, Gillette Stadium’s eerily silent crowd could only watch with their collective mouths open.
