    Tale of the tape...Pats vs. Ravens

    Patriots-Ravens Tale of the Tape Chart Looks pretty even except we have a better passing game, but they have a better pass defense (who doesn't).

    It looks like 25 teams don't have a better pass defense.  But for the most part this season the Pats have seen great defensive teams and only seen great offensive teams a few times.  I heard the ravens starting corners are out, does anyone know if they played the first game against the Pats?

    WE have  BB and Tom Brady, home field and hopefully a great gameplan.



                 Go Pats

    Good example of why rank numbers don't mean much.

    Yards allowed 3rd vs 8th with a whopping 20 yards difference

    Yards per game 7th vs 14th with a big difference of 46 yards. That's one broken out running play or one long pass completed.

    My point is none of this matters on that 'any given day'. It's one coverage blown. one missed tackle or one stupid penalty that will make the game.

    Stats for the season can be misleading when a team gets worse or better in certain areas towards the end of the season.  For instance, the Ravens have started rushing much better than they were at the beginning of the season.

    We'll still stick it to them though.

    The real Numbers that will win or lose this game is turnovers and penaltys.  I don't think nether team can negate much of these errors.

    So in that regard I think the PATS win. They will play a cleaner game with home field crowd noise on their side.

    As long as the Defense can watch out for the TE Masking routes and make adjustments to wideout bunching patterns we should be good.

    Timing is everything in life.

    You can have less yards than your opponent as long as you get them at the right time and prevent them from getting yards at the right time.

    Two things are key to winning this game (actually three, but the third is turnovers, and that's a "given" in any playoff game). Can Brady count on Edelman to do 75% of what Wes does, and can the defense keep the Ravens from making huge running plays? If Rice or McGahee rip off a 70 yard run they will be in trouble! They need to make Flacco beat them downfield, that is where their weakness is. On offense they need to keep the chains going and to finish drives. Faulk will probably have to contribute heavily, but in playoffs past he has done just that. Edelman needs to be able to make the catch on third downs, too. I like this kid, let's hope he handles his first postseason appearance well. They also need to score in the second half to keep the Ravens under pressure. San Diego will require a huge game by the RBs, if they win tomorrow. But Brady needs to get the passing game going against Baltimore. Sustained drives for seven points, not three. Let's keep those bozos in Baltimore whining!!!

    Like Evil said, one botched coverage in the secondary negates almost all of the Ravens' penalties.  And we really should expect at least one blown play.

    But the Pats will get this one at home, regardless.
