NFL Playoffs 2015: Baltimore Ravens vs. New England Patriots - Prediction

New, comments
Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

In 2010, the Ravens upset the Patriots in Gillette Stadium 33-14. In 2012, the Patriots got their re-match and defeated the Ravens in the AFC Championship 23-20 after Billy Cundiff missed a short game-tying field goal. In 2013, the two teams squared off in the AFC Championship again, this time with the Ravens winning 28-13 (and then going on to win the Super Bowl).

It has become a regular "thing" for these two teams to face off in the postseason, and one could make the case that Joe Flacco has had the upper hand on Tom Brady. Baltimore is the lone surviving team out of the AFC North -- can they take it to the top-seeded Patriots, or is New England just too good? After starting the season a 2-2, the Patriots went 10-1 before losing the finale in which they pulled most of their starters. I'm going with the Patriots continuing to ride high. Patriots 27, Ravens 20
