In a game where Ray Lewis and Co. sought revenge for the heartbreak endured on the final play of last season’s AFC Championship, the Ravens rallied from a 13-0 deficit to out-muscle the Patriots 31-30.
This chippy seesaw gridiron battle saw opposing head coaches go toe-to-toe in a big-time chess match.
It also saw pinpoint precision passing, crushing hits and small running backs slithering and sprinting through gigantic men scratching and clawing in the trenches.
It also saw some awful refereeing. Manure-chants and a field-goal that was, shall we say, reviewable?
Regardless, this game sure was fun to watch. This slideshow will feature six big studs and one dud in this game.
