Ravens vs. Patriots: Live Score, Video, Tweets and Analysis for AFC Championship

QBs Tom Brady and Joe Flacco shake hands after AFC Wild Card matchup just two years ago.

Patriots S Sterling Moore, not QB Tom Brady, saved the team's 2011 season.

Wait, what?

I'll give you a few minutes to digest that, but it's exactly what happened in today's game. Brady was actually quite mediocre, finishing with a QB rating of 57.5 -- his lowest QB rating ever in a postseason game!

And Moore looked like a season veteran with the game on the line and under 30 seconds remaining.

The Ravens had entered the red zone, and were looking to tie or take the lead. Flacco looked for WR Lee Evans in the corner of the end zone, AND FOUND HIM!

But at the last possible moment, Moore made an excellent play on the ball and batted it out of the receiver's hands!

And on the play that followed, Flacco attempted to hit TE Dennis Pitta, but Moore broke the play up, forcing Ravens K Billy Cundiff to attempt a 32-yard field goal.

He shanked it, and the Patriots are the 2011 AFC Champions.

Final score: Patriots 23, Ravens 20
