Should be a good game.
I am a huge Patriots fan so go Pats!
Zibikowski of Notre Dame takes a knee in the end zone...
I wonder who Greg Mattison is pulling for...
No i don't. He's probably pulling for MEECHIGAN!
ps- did anyone else just see the punter fall without any provocation? reminds me of the prick who got me a yellow card in indoor soccer this morning.
A defender's helmet hit his foot, throwing him off balance. Chill
if you believe that, i'd like to talk to you about a wonderful investment opportunity...
the helmet hitting his foot had nothing to do with him falling.
lol how much do you think it takes to push a guy over trying to land on one foot while in mid air, I gaurantee every punter goes down with that exact same contact and none of it is flopping.
I'm kinda rooting for a Har-bowl. Anyone else?

It's kinda sad but true!!! Finding great kickers is very hard in college football these days
I hate ravens + Tom Brady = Go Pats.
Two 3 and outs by the Patriots defense. Not too shabby.
Yeah that was the first time the Ravens didn't double team Wilfork and he bull rushed his guy and caused the sack.
The short pass is eating up the Baltimore D right now.
...should not quarterback in the Super Bowl.
"nobody makes me bleed my own blood, nobody!!"
"Nobody puts baby in the corner. Nobody."
Ravens defense holds right outside the 10. Field goal. If the Pats are going to win, they need to convert their opportunities into touchdowns.
...just blanketed Welker's end zone route. Impressive for something like a 36-year old MLB.
Live in Bal'more/DC suburbs...
Still rooting for the Pats!
Flacco and cameron need to take a page out of the patriots play calling book, they either run the ball or throw a bomb, no mid level game for this offense and it is terrible.
Troy Woolfolk's big brother Vince has two TFL's already. Big man with a big motor early.
OMG...Brady throws a pick! The apocolypse is nigh. Had to be the WR's fault, right?
They are letting them play, which favors the Ravens.
After watching Tom Brady through the college and pro ranks, why do you think he's blown up in the pros? The right system? Coaches? I'm not sure.
He played pretty well in college but his stats werent jaw dropping and he wasn't taken til the 6th rd.
What do you think? Does Tom just have 'it'? To me he seems to have it all...can make all the throws, team leader, moves when he HAS TO, smart, etc.
I understand he draft is a crap shoot but many said he couldn't do certain things. Seems to me, he's just a tad good.
Brady showed flashes of collegiate greatness in a few games where he was unleashed ('98 OSU, '00 Orange Bowl). He first started as a junior and threw his share of picks his first year (15 TD/12 INTs), so it's not like we was convincingly a superstar after his first year. I think he's a classic case of a player who progressively developed (20 TD/6 INTs his senior year) over time and finally reached his ceiling in the pros. He also played during our power running era - although that was loosening a bit during the 90's - so we just didn't pass that much. He only had 3 300+ passing yard games, with a few more over 270+ yards. And Drew Henson was looming over his shoulder for his two years as starter. Henson threw for 500+ yards during Brady's senior year, so that's a lot of college stats potentially taken away from Brady.
He found a perfect home in New England. Their offensive scheme perfectly matches his skills. I was bummed that he lasted until the 6th round, but I honestly didn't think he would evolve into arguably the best NFL QB we've ever seen....definitely the most clutch NFL QB we've ever seen.
No one predicted that he would be THIS good. He could be the best ever.
I would say it's the system maximizing his potential. But it could just be that he went to Michigan...
Baltimore is threatening after converting 3rd and 5.
Tied at 3
Does anybody else still make a "Z" with their hands when Zoltan comes out to punt? I sure do!
Patriots running well and Ravens passing well.
Tied up. Pleanty of time for the Pats to score before halftime.
Wow....still cant believe the difference in the Pats D from where it was 5 or 6 yrs ago up to now.
I Love Bill...but wow their drafting of defensive players has been really bad.
13-10 Pats. Can the Pats defense hold them for 3 minutes??
lol at the patriots being so scared of the ravens defense, pats getting punched in the mouth and not used to it. What happens when you only play 3 teams with winning records all year and lose to all of them.
Jake Long sighting singing Wind Beneath My Wings on that NFL commercial
Ravens convert on third and long. This seems familiar.....
Great defense Pats. Also their play calling in the red zone as been conservative as hell.
Nice of the Ravens to allow Denard Robinson to play WR for them, and score on that TD play.
I'm not sure how the Pats have not mad any moves in the last couple yrs to improve that D....your not gonna have Brady forever and the fact that the O has to pretty much get a TD every drive cant be a good thing.
I have ZERO confidence that the pats can get a lead and hold it.....
damn.....Brady got folded in half on that one....ouch.
That the Pats seem to have no interest in obtaining a decent RB (how long did they keep paying Maroney to suck...?) maybe they'll snatch up Denard since it appears they need to get their tough yardage from their QB.
the Pats have a pretty good QB, where'd he come from?
Wow.....not sure how Belichik can be happy with an awful tackling team like this....just sad for a Patriots D.
How could you fail to notice Spikes?
So he pulled a denard
Now put it in the endzone and start to put these guys away!!!
They give it right back.
Jeez Brady....you have the lead and your short passing game is killing them. Yet you force one for no reason...dammit Brady you're better than that.
luckily Cam Cameron is calling odd plays to keep the NE D in it....3rd and 3 throw it to your TE....
