    is going to break hearts. He will give you life and give you an INT at the wrong time.

    And it will be a battle, the Ravens and Pats. In fact, winner may be too banged up to win the SB in 2 weeks.

      Redskins's former Good Rex (Grossman) vs. Bad Rex.

      But Flacco does well in big games, better than Peyton Manning.  He had a super game last week against Manning and the Broncos, indeed, an almost miraculous game.

      I think the Patriots are scared of the Ravens more than the other way around.

        Movement in the pocket sucked, he often got jostled or disrupted by defensive contact, peripheral vision sucked, lacked accuracy/timing on deep routes.

        But I have to say Flacco is having his best season, he sees the field much better and is throwing strikes to back shoulders, and in stride across the middle. And when his man beats a CB one on one on a go type route, Flacco gets him the ball.

        Knowing the Ravens Dee is not what it was, but still a defensive force &  seeing Flacco at the top of his game, makes me pick the Ravens and the 49ers.

        who had an easy pick or knockdown on the game-tying miracle play. Moore BLEW IT, big time. Easy play.

        The Patriots aren't scared of anybody or anything. That's just not how they play the game. Baltimore is the same way, of course, which is why they're in it every year.

        The Patriots KNOW they had Baltimore beat in Baltimore, and they were a much weaker team at that time on both sides of the ball (particularly defense).
