The New England Patriots are hosting the AFC Championship game today against the Baltimore Ravens.

It’s going to be an incredible game featuring two teams that are on top of their conference and playing for the right to go to the Super Bowl in Indianapolis.

That is what makes it a must-see game and one that is sure to entertain you and your guests.

You will see Joe Flacco and Ray Rice attempt to put up enough points on a shoddy Patriots defense while Baltimore also hopes they can contain Tom Brady, Wes Welker, Rob Gronkowski and the rest of New England’s explosive offense.

Both teams are well coached, with John Harbaugh heading up the Ravens and Bill Belichick with the Patriots.

These two have met once before in the postseason in the 2009 playoffs and the Ravens pulled off a big upset to open Wild Card Weekend.

Besides that single postseason loss, the Ravens have never once beaten the Patriots in their six regular-season meetings.

The last time the clubs met, the Pats pulled out an overtime victory after crawling back into the game during the 2010 regular season.

So who will win?

The Patriots are the better team and if they can play their normally brilliant offense while limiting Baltimore’s points, they will be victorious.

They put up too many scores and are too fast for any team to contain. Their no-huddle offense is going to neutralize the incredible instincts of the aging Baltimore defenders as their bodies betray them.


With that said, here’s the info on where to watch the AFC Championship Game and when it’s on.

Where: Gillette Stadium, Foxboro, MA

When: Sunday, January 22 at 3:00 p.m. EDT
