Tom Brady vs Ray Lewis

We've seen this one before. Well, sort of.

Last season on a frigid New England evening, the hometown Patriots battled the visiting Baltimore Ravens for 60 brutal minutes of football.

On that fateful night things didn't go according to plan for either team.

The always brilliant Tom Brady was held to an uncharacteristic 239 yards passing while failing to reach the end zone via the air.

All night long New England and Baltimore went back and forth, exchanging heavyweight type blows as we got to witness playoff football at it's very best.

When it was all said and done, thanks to a Lee Evans dropped touchdown pass and a Billy Cundiff missed field goal, the New England Patriots punched their ticket to the Super Bowl.

Fast forward one year later and the rematch is set. Ray Lewis vs. Tom Brady. Bill Belichick vs. John Harbaugh. Ravens vs Patriots. Ladies and gentleman, it's time for Round 2.

But before the pigskin is kicked off through that cool New England air and the fans roar with excitement, let's take a look at a few players who could determine the outcome of the game.
