Do you even have any Patriot fans on this site Bill? Looks like Freddy and I from Baltimore own this site just like we will own the Patriots Stadium on Sunday! I've more responses from the residents at the nearby graveyard! Is your city in New York? Probably Jets fans, huh?

They couldn’t run, they couldn’t protect the quarterback and they couldn’t move the ball for the better part of three quarters. When it was over, the Ravens, frankly, couldn’t care less. For the second time in four years, the Ravens advanced to the AFC Championship Game with an ugly 20-13 divisional playoff win over the Texans on Sunday. Fueled by a pair of future Hall of Famers, Baltimore leaned on a suffocating defense that pitched a second-half shutout to set the stage for a showdown with the Patriots next Sunday with a Super Bowl berth at stake. “There’s a right way to do things, there’s a wrong way to do things and then there’s the Ravens’ way to do things,” linebacker Terrell Suggs said. “It wasn’t pretty. But, hey, we’re not really a pretty team.” The Ravens scored 17 points off Texans turnovers, including touchdowns off two Houston miscues in the first quarter, to advance to Foxborough. Joe Flacco & Co. were a disjointed mess for much of the game. Ray Rice, the league’s second-leading rusher, managed only 60 yards on 2.9 yards per carry. Flacco was sacked five times. The Ravens converted on third down just four of 16 times. After jumping out to a 17-3 first-quarter lead, Baltimore sleepwalked the rest of the game, gaining just 156 total yards and seven first downs over the final three quarters. Baltimore went three-and-out eight times in 14 drives (excluding the final knee as time expired). PATS WILL BEAT THEM 34-17 rest my case

No Jets fans here but Rex Ryan predicts a Raven victory as well. Maybe you can go golfing with him,Ray Lewis and Joe Flacco while we win another superbowl. When was the last time you were at the big dance maybe 2000? I think we have won a few since then. Good luck to you and your hapless Ravens.Take comfort in knowing Rex "the foot" ryan and you both predict a win for the Ravens. Great minds think alike. I wonder what Bill B."s predicting?

Well. As a former Cleveland-area homegirl who now lives near Boston, I have two excellent reasons to loathe, despise, abhor, just plain HATE the team currently in Baltimore. But the best reason is that the Patriots have hit their stride in these recent weeks. It's gonna be a tough game (of course, we thought the Broncos would be, too!), but the Patriots will defeat the lowly carrion-eating Ravens, 28-24.
Kris Swenson Benning January 21, 2012 at 04:20 AM
It will be tough because my son likes the Ravens and I like the Patriots. I think the Patriots will beat the Ravens 34 - 14. It won't be quiet in our house!
Paul Amirault January 21, 2012 at 01:54 PM
Alas, I have awaken a few of the sleeping Patriots :-) still mad at us for "stealing" your fog eating Browns? I ask you, did you have the same outrage when Indianapolis stole the Baltimore Colts? At least Modell and our city had the courtesy to leave you your name and all of your icons and trophies. Ours were all stolen. Johnny Unitas never was an Indianapolis Colt and never will be. It was the Baltimore Colts that made this league in the 1950s and it was stolen from us. You'll hate us even more after Sunday.
Ed Dufresne January 21, 2012 at 02:17 PM
Bottom line is the Ravens defense can't outscore the Pats offense like they did in that ugly win against the Texans last week.If you can only muster up 20 points against Houston (17 of those off turnovers) what delusions of grandeur you must have to think a world class QB and highpowered offense like that of the Patriots would let you do the same to them?
Ed Dufresne January 21, 2012 at 02:21 PM
Kris say it aint so. My middle son loves Adrian Peterson of the Vikings but I would have to kick him out of the family for treason if he didn't root for the Pats hehehe!! Just kidding but I will have to give your little guy a ribbing when I see him it is funny. GO PATS!!
Ed Dufresne January 21, 2012 at 02:23 PM
MMMM Ravens Taste like chicken but a little less game.errr I mean gamey.
Paul Amirault January 21, 2012 at 02:24 PM
You might remember we had a chance to hire Toe Man Rex, but we didn't. He supports us because he hates you.
Paul Amirault January 21, 2012 at 02:28 PM
We were 2-0 vs Steelers, you were 0-1. Think we have been watching that film?
Paul Amirault January 21, 2012 at 02:29 PM
That was said in 2010 too. Do you remember that one? 33-16 us, I believe. This might be Lewis' and Reed's last chance as Father Time is chasing them. They will leave nothing in the tank. They are on their way to the Sack Room to visit Brady and leave their mark.

What's the forecast for up there?
Jay Oza January 21, 2012 at 04:33 PM
Patriots will win if they don't turn the ball over. It'll be a close game throughout. 27-17, New England

Texans D >>>>> Pats D

“They present a ton of challenges in all three phases of the game,” ESPN.com quoted Brady as saying in the interview. “You watch them yesterday, they’re physical, they’re tough, they can cover. They’ve got some of the best players in the history of the NFL at their positions, in [Terrell] Suggs, Ray Lewis and Ed Reed and Haloti Ngata. You’ve got phenomenal players there. We’ve really got our work cut out for us.” Brady knows it will be a close game and could go either way. If he is pressured he will cough up the ball and the Raven's will win. If the Raven's don't pressure him and keep Gronk in check they will lose. There's one easy way to check the big TE, keep the Pats out of the red zone. It all comes down to the Raven's D. Flacco should have another adequate performance and either way this will be a close game and should be fun to watch.

28-21 Pats.
debbie January 22, 2012 at 12:58 AM
Pat's 24-20 ... Baltimore who?
Freddy January 22, 2012 at 02:04 AM
I quess we will know in less then 21 hours. Go Baltimore Ravens 27 - 17 Pats
Richard Frost January 22, 2012 at 03:12 AM
Pats in a cake walk. Baltimore no sacks last week. handed the ball 4 times on awful throws and still barely won. Brady will not be throwing thise passes and the defense is just starting to come around. Flaco is awful, if they contain Rice somewhat this will get ugly quick. They got destroyed by the Chargers and the old guys (Reed and Lewis) had no clue what was happening.

Today: Mostly sunny, with a high near 30. North wind 5 to 7 mph becoming east. Tonight: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 24. South wind between 3 and 5 mph. Looks like perfect football weather.
Walter White January 22, 2012 at 01:24 PM
Paul, the Steelers have nothing to do with todays game.The Ravens have only faced a top ten offense twice this season. The Chargers destroyed them.
debbie January 22, 2012 at 11:22 PM
Great game by the Ravens... but a missed field goal? Wilfork... player of the game, well deserved! hmmmm.... what was my prediction ...Pats 24 - 20 ?
Walter White January 22, 2012 at 11:44 PM
Patriots Super Bowl bound! Sorry Paul.....but the Ravens did sweep the Steelers!! :)
Dan O'Neill January 23, 2012 at 12:06 AM
Can you believe that they cut off Vince Wilfork in the Pat's 5th quarter????? Brady never even got to the mic....
Bill Gilman (Editor) January 23, 2012 at 12:37 AM
Debbie definitely had the best prediction. Way to Go!! And thank you to Freddy and Paul and any of the other Maryland residents who took me up on my invitation to come up and participate in the conversation. This game was a war!!!! The Ravens played an outstanding game! The Patriots are battered and bruised and will need all two weeks to recover in time for the Super Bowl!
Ed Dufresne January 23, 2012 at 12:41 AM
Where's Freddy and Paul? Hows that owning of our stadium working out for ya? Hats off to the Ravens on a hard-fought game. They snatched defeat right out of the hands of victory. Brady struggled and your defense played well and we still pulled it out. Superbowl here we come!
Freddy January 23, 2012 at 01:58 PM
Great victory New England. The Ravens had the win but failed in the last 2 minutes. I will be chearing on the AFC in the Super Bowl. It was a great game.
