The New England Patriots lead the Baltimore Ravens 13-10 at halftime in Foxboro.

The most impressive player on the field right now is Joe Flacco. He started slow but has started to look sharp against the Patriots defense.

Flacco has completed 11-of-16 passes in the first half with 162 yards and one touchdown. He has more yards than Brady thus far and is going to be pivotal to the Ravens in the second half.

If he finishes with over 300 yards then this game is going to come down to the final quarter.

Torrey Smith leads Baltimore in receiving yards with 53. 

For the Patriots, it is no surprise that Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez are the top two receivers with 43 and 41 yards respectively.

Baltimore has to adjust their coverage and stop the tight ends in order to keep this one close in the second half. 

New England will receive the ball to start the third quarter.
