The no-huddle offense that dominated in Week 1 against the Cincinnati Bengals will need to rebound from a poor performance last week when they face the Patriots. The Ravens will need to perform these things in order to win the first match up of two AFC powers.
The Ravens and New England Patriots are a combined three points from 2-0 starts. Both teams lost in Week 2.
The Patriots lost their home opener for the first time in 11 years, 20-18 to the Arizona Cardinals (2-0) after Stephen Gostkowski missed a 42-yard field goal. Baltimore’s final drive fell short giving the Philadelphia Eagles a 24-23 win.
According to Boston.com, Sunday marks the ninth time these two teams have faced each other—six regular season, two postseason. The Patriots have won every regular season contest. The Ravens snagged their only win in the 2010 wild-card game.
In danger of falling to 1-2, the Ravens need to do these three things well in order to pick up their first regular-season win over the Patriots.
