For the second straight year, the Ravens will head to Foxboro to take on the Patriots in the AFC Championship at Gillette Stadium. A year ago, the Pats snuck away with a 23-20 win and a spot in the Super Bowl after Billy Cundiff missed an easy field goal to send the game to overtime.
This time around, things will be different…or so says Ravens wide receiver Anquan Boldin.
On Wednesday, at the team’s practice facility in Owings Mills, Maryland, Boldin was asked why this year would be any different.
“[Because] we’ll make it different,” [Anquan Boldin] replied.
“We’re gonna win,” he said without missing a beat.
It’s not the first piece of “bulletin board material” the Patriots have received via a Ravens player this week, Brendon Ayanbedejo had quite a bit to say about the Pats after their win against the Texans this past weekend.
But, as we once again learned with Dan Shaughnessy and Arian Foster last week, we know that bulletin board material doesn’t always do the trick. The game still has to be played on Sunday, and until then Boldin’s words will stew in New England.
