The Ravens have never beaten the Pats. In fact, they have never scored a TD in Foxboro.

 

SERIES HISTORY

The Patriots and Ravens have squared off four times in the regular season since the Baltimore franchise was founded following the Cleveland Browns' move to Baltimore in 1996. New England owns a perfect 4-0 record over Baltimore. The teams last met in week 13 of the 2007 season with the Patriots overcoming a 24-17 fourth-quarter deficit to keep their perfect regular season alive and improve to 12-0. The Ravens' first trip to Gillette Stadium came on Nov. 28, 2004 with the Patriots claiming a 24-3 victory. Baltimore's first visit to Foxborough came in the final game of the 1999 regular season, a 20-3 New England win. The first meeting between the teams came during the Ravens' first season in Baltimore, when the Patriots prevailed 46-38 on Oct. 6, 1996. The 84 total points scored by both teams in that game rank as the secondhighest total number of points in a game in Patriots history.

It's time to get this monkey off their backs.

few ways you can look at this game.

 

Rex did it, so why shouldn't we be able to? We are a better team.

 

Even a good showing playing the Pats there is a win?

 

After three games I think we have seen the Ravens offense, it can do many thing and beat you many ways. We haven't seen some of the thing from it that we seen last season.

 

After three games I don't think we have seen the Ravens defense and what it will do. Could see some of that this Sunday.

I'm 100% confident that this Ravens team can beat the Patriots in New England. Will that happen this Sunday? I don't know. As long as the Pats have Belichick, Brady, Moss, and Welker I will worry.

 

The game will be a battle for sure.

 

Tom Brady is still Tom Brady. He'll find his stride. I just hope he doesn't fully hit it this Sunday. Even if he does, I still think we can beat them.

 

A win Sunday and well need a crowbar to pry ESPN, and everyone else off our n*t$.

I hope they stick to the game plan and run, run, run, run.....and then if possible, run some more.

 

Last week they threw it like crazy. Against KC they threw it like crazy. Let's do our best to keep Brady & Co. off the field, and not get into a shoot out with them. We seriously need like 38 minutes T.O.P. this Sunday.

 

Brady probably got the blueprint from Philip Rivers...throw it high in the air down the field on the side that Reed is not.

If the O line can keep Joe Cool cool, then I love the Ravens chances for a win.

I think they can.

 

Sould be a shootout with whoever is more effective in the redzone winning the game.

 

Edge: Ravens

 

The Patriots rank 26th in the NFL in red-zone offense, converting just four 13 trips into touchdowns.

 

This is a tough week to reverse the trend, as the Ravens' defense ranks tied for first in the red zone, holding opponents to just two touchdowns in eight trips. Their best performance came in week 2 against the Chargers, who were 0 for 5.

The Ravens are putting up more points than the Pats are...103-60...13 TD's to only 5 for the Pats.

The Patriots own the NFL’s best home record (55-19) since 2000, 1 game better than the Ravens (54-20).

I think we need to stay balanced. Keeping the field stretched on offense is what is opening up the running game. At the sametime, without Mayo and Seymour, the Pats are weaker against the run than they have been in the past. Do not forget, last time we played the Pats Willis McGahee had a career game. Willis is in better playing condition than he was last time around, so Willis could be key this game. But Joe does need to keep the defense on their heels to keep only seven guys in the box. I am expecting to see a continuation of a lot of three receiver sets, and seeing Heap flexed out at times letting McGahee and Rice slash through the Pats defense inside.

I think Wilfork is out too. I heard they are only playing 2 LB's.....basically diming it on Sunday. Don't know though.

Yougaddebeshiddingme, I hope Air Joe, throws for 400 and 3 TD's,,

 

Any other week, yes...

 

BUT...The guy I am playing in my work's fantasy league has Flacco and McGahee. I have Rice, so I hope Rice gets like 3-4 RUSHING TD's and Haushka kicks 5 field goals.

 

Call me selfish I guess.

 

Side note...Brady has been sacked a grand total of 1 time this season. That trend needs to change on Sunday.

FYI...........

 

With all the recent success of the passing game it can be confusing for fans who think the Ravens are a passing team.

Not so.

They are very balanced...107 passes to 101 rushes. 7 rushing TD's to 6 passing TD's.

 

Perfect IMO.

For those who like stats and think the Pats are going to try and force Joe to beat them...

 

Flacco has been ice cold outside of Baltimore, consistently unrattled as vitriol pours down upon his shoulders from hostile crowds. In the Ravens’ last seven regular-season road games, Flacco’s passer rating has been 101.1, which is first among all quarterbacks.

 

During that span, the second-year signal-caller has completed 64.9 percent of his passes (122 of 188) for 1,488 yards, 11 touchdowns and only three interceptions.

No Crav. We're strictly Sandtown/Winchester. We have three house dedications next Saturday on N Gilmor and another one on N Carey the following Saturday.
