The Ravens were able to get it done against the Houston Texans this past weekend, and the defense looked great. Having said that, the offense was about as anemic as we've seen all year. Were it not for all of the turnovers that the defense forced, Joe Flacco and the gang might be sitting and watching form home this weekend instead of playing.
Brady and the New England offense looked absolutely fantastic against the staunch defensive unit of the Denver Broncos that came in ranked as one of the top defenses in the NFL. Brady threw for six touchdown passes and honestly probably could've thrown for 10 if they didn't gear down in the second half. On the other side of the ball, the "horrible" Pats defense looked very good, and seems to be hitting its stride at the right time.
In this game I think that the Patriots will simply overwhelm the Ravens, and the Ravens' offense won't be able to keep pace. If Brady plays at even 80 percent of the level that he did against the Broncos, the Patriots should roll in this game and win by at least two touchdowns. Roll with the Patriots all day against the spread; they'll be playing in the Super Bowl February 5th.
