Patriots vs. Ravens week 16 match-up

Tom Brady completed 14 of 26 pass attempts for 172 yards and 1 TD for the Patriots in the win. He did not throw an interception in the game.

“They’re all special. It’s hard to come by, and this team’s really fought hard all year,” Brady said. “We’ve earned it. Eleven wins in the NFL’s not easy, and to win a division title’s not easy.”

Ray Rice rushed for 40 yards for Baltimore, while Tyrod Taylor added 39 yards. Joe Flacco threw for 260 yards for the Ravens, while receivers Torrey Smith and Marlon Brown had 69 and 51 yards respectively.

New England was outgained by Baltimore 358-300 yards in Sunday’s match, while the important battle of first downs was won 21-19 by the Patriots. Baltimore lost the time of possession battle 31:58/28:02, leaving their defense on the field more than they wanted.

“I love how the Harbaugh brothers go ballistic anytime a penalty is called. You would think someone stole their wallet, burned down their house and ran off with his wife.”

The Patriots dominated the first half and led 17-0 at intermission, as the Ravens managed 71 total yards on 25 first-half plays and did not have an offensive snap in New England territory in the opening two quarters. A pass interference on Baltimore cornerback Jimmy Smith set up Blount’s 1-yard TD plunge about 5 1/2 minutes into the game and, following a Flacco interception, Brady hooked up with Shane Vereen for a 4-yard score.

A 45-yard field goal by Stephen Gostkowski on the first play of the second quarter made it 17-0 and his 42-yarder inflated the score to 20-0 midway through the third. Flacco’s quarterback sneak with 9:21 remaining kept Baltimore from suffering its first shutout since 2002, but Blount ended the drama with a 7-yard TD run with just over two minutes left as the Ravens’ four-game winning streak came to an end.

New England looks to continue their winning ways next NFL Football Picks game with a battle against the Bills. The Ravens will aim to get back on the winning track at Cincinnati.
