Ravens are actually the last the team to the beat the Pats in Gillette in the postseason.

You've gotta assume the Pats would win.  Playing a team for the second time is gonna benefit the Pats more than the Ravens, IMO.

Generally, yes.  However, the Raven's victory wasn't by just a score. It was rather decisive. I really hope we get this matchup.

Quite frankly I hope the Pats lose before we get a rematch, but that's just me.

they get free home field advantage this year, so it's rather unlikely.

If we keep playing this way, no team in the AFC is going to stop us.

I agree. I think purely from an X's and O's standpoint the Ravens have the upper hand here even in Foxboro.  Being on the road and having to use the silent count didn't slow them down even one little bit in Seattle; they blew our doors off, having Russell Wilson pretty shook to the point where he played completely unlike himself to try to compensate for how many points we were giving up.  The run-pass-option when done right is pretty much nearly unstoppable, and they are doing it better than anyone has ever done it right now. It's to the point where as long as they don't shoot themselves in the foot with penalties, they can go for it on 4th and short and be pretty much guaranteed to make it.  If we get this matchup in the AFC Championship, I just might get into gambling.

Lamar and the Ravens are the flavor of the month just like Mahomes and the Chiefs were last year. Lamar still has yet to prove himself in the postseason. There’s a big disparity from a week 9 regular season game and the playoffs, especially a conference championship.

That's a bad argument though. All the postseason greats had to start their postseason career. Lar did it coming in mid season and almost came back. This year he is a different cat.

Tough to feel threatened when your team has won 3 chips in the past 5 years and just lost their first game in 320 days.
