New England Patriots vs. Baltimore Ravens: Live Score, Video, & Analysis
After a heartbreaking loss to the Patriots in the AFC Championship game last season, the Ravens will host Tom Brady and company in a rematch on Sunday Night Football.
The Ravens have the longest home winning streak in the NFL, boasting 11 straight wins at M&T Bank Stadium. Can they protect Joe Flacco while also slowing down the Patriots' high-powered offense?
Meanwhile, can New England keep things rolling without Aaron Hernandez?
Either way, one of these two AFC powerhouses is going to start the 2012 season 1-2.
Bill Belichick will likely get fined big time for grabbing an official after the game. Bush league move for a guy of his tenure in the league.
This was one of the most insane football games I've ever seen. I have to say I think the replacement refs helped make it that way. Not sure if that is good or bad but it definitely made it interesting to watch.
Justin Tucker hits a 27-yard game winner as time expired to give the Ravens a 31-30 victory over the New England Patriots.

The Pats are inside their own five yard line so the Ravens defense needs to help them to a field goal if they want to stay in this game. That penalty on third down is going to be a defining moment of this game if the Patriots hold onto this lead.
Ed Reed gets flagged for a nasty helmet-to-helmet shot on Deion Branch on 3rd down. Patriots are picking up yards in chunks and don't seem to have any trouble doing what they want.
After getting torched by Brent Celek last week I've very surprised that Gronk only has two catches. Pats are targeting the cornerbacks instead.

Finally, getting Ray Rice more involved helps the entire offense run more smoothly and takes the pressure off Flacco's shoulders. Cam Cameron needs to keep it up.
The defensive breakdowns for the Ravens have been unreal. Obviously, Brady is an elite quarterback, but receivers were routinely open during the entire first half. Secondary really needs to step it up to slow down this Pats offense.
