Preview: New England Patriots vs Baltimore Ravens Divisional Playoff
Winning in Foxboro is not an easy feat, but the Ravens may have the best shot at it of any remaining AFC team. Firstly, they are riding high after last Saturday’s 30-17 victory over the Steelers, proving they have the talent and determination to hang with any team.
The Ravens have played the Patriots on the road in the playoffs three times since 2009 and have come out victorious in two of them -Baltimore won in the 2009 Wild Card game as well as the 2012 AFC Championship game. Winning on the road in the playoffs is kind of their thing, as the Ravens’ 10 post season road victories are currently tied with Green Bay for the most in NFL history even though the franchise didn’t exist until 1996.
While neither of these two teams is at the top of the league statistically speaking, both have found ways to win this season. After a rough beginning and what seemed like a decline in talent, the Patriots won 10 of 11 games before resting their starters in the season-ending loss to Buffalo. With Tom Brady under center and Bill Belichick calling the shots, one can never count them out.
New England fans will undoubtedly be out in full force with Patriot tickets in hand to watch their beloved team attempt the first hurdle on their way to post season glory. Baltimore will do their best to play the spoiler and continue on a similar quest.
Patriots 9 - Bills 17
With most of the Patriots starters on the sidelines, the Buffalo Bills finished strong with a 17-9 win at Gillette Stadium.
The win brought Buffalo’s regular season record to 9-7, the first winning season since 2004; however a loss to Oakland in Week 16 ended any hope of post season play. Bills’ quarterback Kyle Orton, who announced his NFL retirement the very next day, had a decent outing posting 176 yards and a touchdown while running back Boobie Dixon added a one-yard touchdown run.
In the Patriots (12-4) loss, several streaks were snapped: Buffalo’s 0-12 record at Gillette Stadium and New England’s 35 home wins against AFC teams as well as 16 games at home against any opponent.
Patriots’ signal caller Tom Brady played all five offensive series in the first half and failed to throw a touchdown pass for the first time this season. His backup, Jimmy Garoppolo played the second half and threw for 90 yards and was sacked 3 times.
Despite their first winning season in almost 10 years, the Bills will be watching the post season from their vacation homes or the nearest golf course. New England heads to the playoffs with the first seed in the AFC earning them a first round bye. Patriot ticket holders will get to see their team face off on January 10th in Foxboro against the Colts, Ravens or Bengals depending on the outcome of Wild Card weekend.
Patriots 41 - Dolphins 13
The New England Patriots won their sixth straight AFC East title with a convincing 41-13 victory over the Miami Dolphins.
At Gillette Stadium in Foxboro in front of a packed crowd of Patriots ticket buyers, Tom Brady showed us once again that he is not losing it and neither is his team. After a rough start to the season, the Patriots made history by being the first team to win 11 division titles in 12 years.
Brady threw for 287 yards and two touchdowns and the normally non-mobile quarterback even scrambled for a first down which sparked their huge 24-point third quarter with 10 of those points coming in 13 seconds.
In the loss, Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill threw for 346 yards and a touchdown but was also intercepted two times. The Patriots came into this game seeking revenge for a first week 33-20 loss at the hands of the Dolphins and were successful.
The 11-3 Patriots control their own destiny and can claim home field advantage throughout the playoffs with wins in their last two games, both AFC East division rivals in the New York Jets and the Buffalo Bills.
7-7 Miami is still in the playoff hunt and can possibly snag a wildcard spot depending on a number of scenarios. They will stay at home to face the Minnesota Vikings in Week 16 and the New York Jets in Week 17.
Patriots 23 - Chargers 14
The New England Patriots clinched their 12th straight 10-win season on Sunday night in a 23-14 win over the 8-5 San Diego Chargers. The Patriots had spent all week in San Diego preparing for the game and whatever they did seemed to work.
At the half, the score was 14-13 in favor of the Chargers and it appeared as though the game could go either way. The third quarter was a defensive battle and neither team could put any points on the board. In the fourth quarter, Tom Brady and the Patriots turned up the heat and put the game away with a 38-yard Steven Gostkowski field goal and a 69-yard touchdown pass to Julian Edelman.
In the win, Brady finished with 317 yards in the air and two touchdowns while their leading rusher was LeGarrette Blount with 66 yards on the ground. Chargers’ signal caller Philip Rivers ended the game with 189 passing yards and one touchdown to wideout Malcolm Floyd.
The Chargers, currently in the sixth seed and fighting to keep their playoff spot will face division rival 10-3 Denver in San Diego while the Patriots get to stay home as well to matchup against a fellow AFC East team in the Miami Dolphins. New England fans will want to scoop up and buy those Patriots tickets and head to Foxboro for that classic New England-Miami rivalry game.
Patriots 21 - Packers 26
Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers held off the Patriots in what some considered to be a potential Super Bowl showdown, by a score of 26-21.This high profile matchup between two future hall of fame signal callers no doubt had fans lining up to buy Lambeau Field tickets in order to witness this great faceoff.
Rodgers threw for 368 yards and two long touchdowns to Richard Rodgers and Jordy Nelson, while running back Eddie Lacy finished just shy of 100 yards on the ground with 98. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady ended the game going 22-of-35 for 245 yards and two touchdown passes to Brandon LaFell in the loss.
The game certainly had the feel of a playoff matchup from start to finish. Down 13-0 after the first quarter, the Patriots fought back with two second quarter touchdowns. However, the Packers offense was just too much for New England, even for Revis Island, and 9-3 Green Bay came out victorious.
New England, now 9-3 as well, snapped their seven-game win streak with this loss but are firmly in first place atop the AFC West by two games over the Miami Dolphins. In Week 14 they will travel to San Diego to take on a team that is fighting for a wildcard spot in the AFC postseason.
Green Bay gets to stay home and play the 5-7 Atlanta Falcons who have been up and down for most of the 2014 season.
Patriots 34 - Lions 9
The New England Patriots continued their dominance Sunday and steamrolled the Detroit Lions 34-9 at home in Foxboro.
In front of a raucous crowd of Patriot ticket buyers, quarterback Tom Brady threw for 349 yards and two touchdowns almost exactly 14 years after making his NFL debut in another 34-9 game versus the Lions on Thanksgiving Day, 2000.
After a Week 11 running game extravaganza from Patriot Jonas Gray, this week the rushing duties were handled by newly acquired LeGarrette Blount for 78 yards and two touchdowns, and Shane Vereen for an additional 12 rushing yards. The 9-2 Patriots led 24-6 at halftime and in typical New England fashion, didn’t let up in the second half.
The 7-4 Lions lost to a conference leader for the second week in a row having been defeated by Arizona 14-6 just a week earlier. In the loss, Detroit signal caller Matthew Stafford threw for 264 yards and was the team’s second leading rusher with 18 yards on the ground.
Continuing with NFL tradition, the Lions will play on Thanksgiving Day and face a division rival in the Chicago Bears (5-6) at home. Detroit currently sits one game back from the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Central.
In Week 13, New England will travel to Green Bay in what should be an exciting matchup between two division leaders and a clash of future Hall of Fame quarterbacks.
