Baltimore Ravens vs. New England Patriots Playoff Preview, Prediction and Pick
This year has been crazy to say the least in the NFL, and we are now down to only four teams remaining, and they are the four teams who deserve to be in the AFC and NFC Championship game. Today we are going to start out by checking into the AFC Championship game which features one of the original favorites in the New England Patriots, and a team who is hot at the right time and playing some great football in the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens found out before the playoffs started that their leader, Ray Lewis, was retiring after this season. Since that point, they've been rolling. The Patriots started out last week with a big win against the Houston Texans, and now they'll have a tough task against this emotional Ravens team. Kickoff in this game is set for 6:30pm EST on Sunday evening.
The Ravens are not only playing with a ton of emotion, but they are simply playing all around great football. For starters, the offense with Joe Flacco are making noise, and Ray Rice is one of the most consistent and strongest running backs in the NFL. Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith are both getting open for Flacco, which obviously helps out, and to top it off the defense is making big plays when it matters most in these big playoff games.

The Patriots have one of the strongest and scariest offenses in the NFL. If you've watched them play at all this season you know that their offense will literally pass the ball on any down. With that being said though, both Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen have been solid in the running game at different points. Tom Brady is still one of the best in the business, and even though they lost Rob Gronkowski to a broken arm they have a ton of weapons all over the field for Brady to utilize.

The Ravens are on top of their game right now, which is going to make this game even more interesting than you may think right off the bat. The Patriots are definitely the favorites, especially due to the fact that they are on their home field, and winning a playoff game in New England is never an easy task. While I do think that the Ravens offense is going to put some points on the board and keep this game close, I'm taking the Patriots to get the job done at the end of the day by a touchdown.
Prediction: New England Patriots- 34 Baltimore Ravens- 27
