    The OFFICIAL Ravens - Patriots Game Prediction Thread



    It's that time again. Hump day can only mean one thing - prognostication time!

    Pats are 3-4 on the road. Two of those 3 wins were at the buzzer to what one would consider inferior opponents. The only road win by a margin of 7 was to the lowly Falcons.

    Their defense is giving up a whopping 377 yards a game (100 yards more than the Ravens). Scoring on them should not be a problem.

    Brady is still Brady and I'm sure he's still hurting from being knocked out of the playoffs by us last year. So I do think motivation won't be an issue.

    We do need to stop farting around and score more TD's in the red zone. Tucker's kicks are great, but c'mon.. TD's are much more fun to watch.

    I think the big win in Detroit will bring this team home on an emotional high. And couple that with the Pats being a bad road team, I like our chances.

    It'll be a high scoring affair.. and a defensive stop in the red zone will ice it.

    echoes of last year's AFCC. Pats O freezes in second half (without Gronk). Flacco makes just enough plays. Pitta and Tucker come up big. multiple picks in 2nd half.

    Joe seemed a little pissed off in his post game presser about not scoring TDs and settling for the 61 yarder. He comes out firing back at home in the Vault.

    Flacco gets his first 5 touchdown game of his career.

    Tucker hits a 65 yard field goal on the last play of the first half.

    (Only partly joking about that last part)

    More than a few times this year we've looked at the opposing defense, thought it couldn't possibly be hard to score on them, and watched the Ravens O make 'em look like a top ten D.

    Brady doesn't have Gronk, but he still has weapons. Even so, Flacco has their number:

    Pats 20, Ravens 27.

    Out of our last three games (Det, NE and Cin) I was most worried about Detroit.

    While the Ravens always seem to make things difficult no matter who we play, I think we finally have a somewhat comfortable lead at the end of the game.

    With Edelman being Brady's best target, shutting him down should make things easier on us.

    With all of that being said, Ravens 23... Pats 13.

    I predict I will be spitting up blood and have a screaming headache by kickoff.

    I will be ill throughout the game...and the Ravens winning the game, after seeing that Minnesota also beat the Bengals, will be the only thing that keeps me from falling out of the upper deck.

    On a sidenote, KC will also beat the Colts and the Bills will give the Fins all they can handle.
    And that my brothers and sisters means that talk of an outside chance of a bye is heard around Baltimore...but I am way ahead of myself. SO, just win on Sunday. Or should I say, JUSTwin Tucker!

    I just can't see New England's current group of receivers doing any serious damage against us, especially if our secondary brings the same physical game plan that we saw in Detroit.

    Ravens will win this game, given that Joe's knee is fully ready to go and he can step into his throws, even if wearing a brace.

    Like TheRockDoctor said above, if we come with the same physical style of play on D like we did in Detroit, it's going to make a long day for Brady and his WRs.

    My only concern is the weather, yet again. The rain could make for a slippery ball (which I would say benefits us since it seems all of the Pats RBs have had a case of the fumbles this season).

    This is by far the weakest Patriots team the Ravens will have faced in a decade. They have no deep or outside threats, no TE's, not much of a running game, and they don't play defense. A weak schedule, and Tom Brady have kept them in front of the very weak AFCE.

    In what is basically a playoff game for both teams, I like the Ravens to win this one.

    I tried Ravens 26 - Lions 20, and while I got the winning team, didn't get the right score. So, since nobody else has taken it : Ravens 26 - Patriots 20... Bc

    This is a home playoff game and no mistake. Our boyz will be hell bent for leather.
    After the last 4 games the Fans will be out their fuckin minds.

    No Gronk, no Welker and our secondary has come into it's own.

    If Flacco isn't wearing a brace and the OL pass protects at least as well as it did vs Detroit -

    Looks like Kenbrell Thompkins will definetly be back for the game this Sunday, and Aaron Dobson also appears to be on the way back.

    Tom Brady won't have tight end Rob Gronkowski to throw to anymore this season, but a pair of rookie wide receivers are on their way back for the New England Patriots.

    Aaron Dobson (foot) and Kenbrell Thompkins (hip) were on hand for the portion of Wednesday's practice that was open to the media, according to ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss.

    The Boston Herald's Jeff Howe noted that Thompkins especially looked "really explosive" in a receiving drill -- a good sign he'll be ready for Sunday's meeting with the Baltimore Ravens.

    Neither pass-catcher played in New England's 24-20 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, in which Brady threw for 357 yards minus Gronk, who tore up his knee against the Cleveland Browns in Week 14.

    The Ravens have dealt with far more intimidating receiver groups this season, so my prediction remains unchanged. But the Pats will be stronger in the receiving department than they were last week at Miami.
