When the New England Patriots play host the Baltimore Ravens, there’s a quite good shot that we will be witnessing an entertaining matchup. The Patriots superstar quarterback Tom Brady has played against Ravens 10 games during his regular season and playoff career in the National Football League (NFL), and six of those contests have been determined by one score. The Ravens has even concluded the Patriots season in the playoffs a couple of times, something only two other franchises — the Denver Broncos and New York Giants — can say.
The Baltimore continually have one of the league’s best defenses, and this season is no different. The Ravens enters the NFL’s Monday Night Football game with the New England Patriots having allowed the fewest yards per game and second-fewest points per contest in the NFL.
The New England, of course, once again have one of the top offenses in the National Football League. It’s led by no other than the veteran quarterback Tom Brady, who has been sparkling in his eight games since coming back from a four-game suspension earlier of the season. The 39-year-old Tom Brady is bleeding pass-catchers right now, with tight end Rob Gronkowski and wide receiver Danny Amendola going down in a two straight weeks, but the quarterback just keeps right on humming along. This NFL season’s version of the Patriots also has one of their strongest running games in recent years, as running back LeGarrette Blount has consistently pruned opponents down on the field.
Regardless of a win or loss, the New England Patriots will remain atop of the AFC East division. However, after the Miami Dolphins defeated the Arizona Cardinals last Sunday, the New England will need to secure a win to remain three games lead in the division with three more contests to play.
Meanwhile, with a win, the Baltimore Ravens will remain the leader on the AFC South division. But with the Pittsburgh Steelers defeating the Buffalo Bills yesterday, the Baltimore will drop to second spot — and behind the Miami Dolphins and the defending Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos in the Playoff Wildcard chase — should they lose.
