    Like last week, I think the Pats win this one easy. Pats D is solid and expecting Flacco to play well for two weeks in a row is like expecting to win the lottery. His completion percentages are up and down more than a yo-yo. He is not consistent. My guess is that last week was his big game of the year. Expecting Flacco to play against the Pats D the same way that he played against a banged-up, no pass defense Texans D is asking a bit much for him.

    The antithesis of Flacco is Tom Brady. The bigger the game the bigger he plays. The absence of Gronk means little. The Pats have had a revolving door at WR and TE for years and they just keep winning. Either Fells or Hernandez will step into the role of TE and produce solid numbers with no problem. Add in that the Ravens D is suspect (have allowed nearly 1000 yards of offense in 2 playoff games).

    My personal opinion is that Ray Rice is the key to Flacco's success, not the O-line. If Rice struggles then the Pats D can sit on the pass routes and Flacco will have a bad day. If Rice has a big game like he did against Denver then the Pats D has to cheat up to stop the run and play Torrey Smith and Boldin man2man.

    I would like to see the Pats run a dual back set a few times with Woody/Vereen or Ridley/Vereen to see how the Ravens react to it. All 3 of those guys can catch the ball out of the back field and have good speed. Ray had some issues against the Denver RBs and keeping up with them, so it's definitely an area the Patriots can exploit.

    i like this idea of a two back set, just a wrinkle that they would have to adjust to



    its gonna be another close game between these two. last team with the ball wins it. go pats!

    I think you must be referring to the way that BRADY played against a banged-up no pass defense Texans D. Unless I'm grossly mistaken, when the Ravens played Houston earlier this season...it didn't go well for Flacco or the Ravens...at all.

    I think I'm going to go with NE in this game. I'm just not convinced that the Ravens D can slow down the Pats O enough to allow Flacco and company to keep up.

    Suggs and Rice are the only 2 guys that I fear in this match-up but I think they get these 2 guys neutralized and the Pats lay the wood to the birds for the win.

    I just don't see a way possible for the Patriots to contain the Elite QB Joe Flacco. I'm not sure how he's not in the MVP conversation.
